I just bought this vintage automatic Seastar. The seller said that it has the 784-2 movement. To advance the hands forward, or to wind the watch, you have to roatate the crown counter clockwise. Is this normal or do I have a problem?
Also, the dial itself almost seems off-center to the 10 o’clock position (I can see what looks like possibly the edge of the mechanism under the dial at the 4 o’ock position when viewed at an angle. As well as the date not being perfectly centered in the date box. Am I just being too picky with these things?
Lastly, I wound the watch via the crown today for about 5 minutes straight and never heard or felt the winding get tight or sound like it was fully wound. I got about 6 hours out of it before it stopped running. Does this mean it’s time to have it serviced?
Thanks in advance for any help that can be given!
