    Angry Help! I damage the movement in my Sumo, who can service it for me?

    So, yeah, I'm an idiot. I attempted to regulate my Sumo using the adjustment lever and must have been too rough. Now the balance wheel wont turn. I can move it manually, but it will no longer oscillate.

    I do love the watch, but I also know its not the most expensive in the world. Is it worth it to try and get it serviced? It was running ok before this, just a bit slow.

    No idea how much something like this would cost or who could do it, would love to hear any ideas you guys may have.

    Thanks!

    Did a little research, now realize there is a Seiko Service Center in New Jersey, and it seems that services is around $83 dollars.

    Very reasonable, I'm excited, I had written my Sumo off as a loss!

    Yeah, just make sure you take a set of detailed pictures before sending it in... My long gone Seiko SRP227 acquired a 'mysterious' scratch on the bezel when it came back from service... Just saying;)
