I just received my new watch, a Tissot PRS 516, but I noticed something a little odd while setting the time. When pulled out all the way, there is a small range in which the crown moves completely freely, and as I hit either end of this range where the hands begin to move, both the hour and minute hand will move together for a couple millimeters. It's difficult to say exactly what happens as the hands are eventually driven by the movement, but I am able to cause a slight offset of both hands in one direction or the other even as I leave the setting mode. Basically, it feels as if the entire assembly containing the hour and minute hands is somehow slightly loose and being moved as a single piece by the crown.
This is in contrast to my only other mechanical watch, a Seiko 5, where every movement of the crown when setting the time translates exactly to a proportional movement of the hands. There is no play in the mechanism at all.
For all I know this could be completely normal and the way the 7750 movement works, so I would like to get some input from the community before I contact the dealer. The movement doesn't feel broken or damaged in any other way, and all functions do work properly.
Update: To settle this once and for all, I've created a short video demonstrating exactly what I'm describing and posted it here. Is this a normal amount of play for a 7750 or something more? I couldn't find any reference to the hour hand moving due to play in the gears on a 7750, but maybe I'm just the first to think sufficiently much of it to ask.
