    Question Question about non hacking seiko movements

    Hi all,

    I have seen from a number of threads that it is possible to stop the second hand on a non hacking seiko by applying a little bit of back pressure to the crown. I would like to know whether this really is that risky or damaging to the movement? i.e. would i be okay just doing it once having just bought the watch from new?

    Thanks in advance,

    hazchrono

    No, it's not risky or damaging at all. Otherwise you wouldn't see so many posts from people who do it.
    Regards,

    And there would also be a ton of posts about "How I screwed up my watch".

    Go right ahead Haz, back-hack away!

    I've done it, then felt bad I did it so I avoid it. I am super careful with my things, though. I don't even get my watches wet anymore, other than cleaning. Mostly I use my eyeglasses cleaning solution and cloth.

    Gotta live a little!!

    Now I'm gonna have to take back that 200k for the Credor. I'm not gonna have it sitting in your "Man Box" collecting cleaning solution fumes from it's neighbors.

    I admit I have gotten a little nuts with the eyeglass cleaning solution. You can clean a lot of stuff with it. The other day I sprayed my laptop screen for cleaning, which was fine. I had some sliced cucumbers right next to my laptop that I didn't think twice about till I started eating them again. They tasted slightly off. I ate them anyway. Seconds later I went to cut up a few more with my case pocketknife, slipped and the blade went right through the cucumber and into my thumb. I haven't sharpened that knife in years and it is razorblade sharp. I screamed and flung my hand, blood spattered everywhere, including on my just cleaned laptop screen and cucumbers. I ate them anyway. Nothin stops me from eatin my cucumbers.
