    Problem with my automatic watch - need advice

    I have a Zodiac Oceanaire that is about 4-5 years old. Last couple of months or so it started gaining time quite fast so I had to adjust the time every few days. Today when I wanted to set time again the crown got stuck when I pulled it out to time setting position. I cannot turn it or put it back in anymore, it's stuck. The hands are stuck too.

    Is there anything I can do or should I just take it to a watchshop? Considering the watch's age it's probably about time for a service anyway. How much does that cost usually? I'm not sure I want to pay more for repair than I did for the watch, but I really like this watch.

    Do not touch it again and go set it serviced. Should only cost somewhere around USD $30.

    It's pretty clearly well past time for servicing if it's breaking.
