Hi all, and thanks in advance for any and all replies!
Amongst a recent batch of vintage gear we got a Seiko 66A based watch; quite pretty and in good condition but has an issue where you can only wind it a little before it starts "skipping" like something is stripped (worn gears?).
Any idea what it could be? And is it worth for someone who has never taken a movement apart to even attempt to fix it? I have removed and installed movements and done other minor things but never actually disassembled one. Or should I look for a complete movement from a watch that is in poor cosmetic shape unlike mine and then transplant that? If so, are there other compatible Seiko movements that will fit the same case/dial/hands should I not be able to source a 66A?
