I just got this Seiko Hi-Beat Automatic with 23 jewels in the mail today.
Seems to start up fine and keeps good time.
The only thing is that there isn't a sweep second hand, which makes me wonder if it is missing. Then again, not sure if this model even came with one to begin with.
Opened it up to get a look at the movement in order to find in the Ranfft database and see if it featured a sweep second or not. However, couldn't find a listing for the 2418A movement.
Figured if I posted some pictures, as someone would be able to let me know.
If it does need a second hand, I'm not worried about a replacement. Just want to be sure before I take a trip to a repair shop.
