    Hi.

    I have a Seiko 6139-6005.
    When I stop the sweep second hand, the watch stops running. The watch will only run when the sweep second hand is active.

    I have (2) 6139-6005 & (2) 6139-6012.
    I haven't worn the watches consistently in several months. The last time I wore the watch in question was 2 months ago and it was running properly. It has a 6139B movement. It was sitting on my shelf. No drops or anything.
    I went to wear it yesterday and noticed the issue.
    The other 3 watches run without issue.

    Any suggestions are welcomed.

    Bummer. I don't have the answer to your problem, but I am curious; did you have it sitting on your shelf with the crow pulled, or running?

    The crown was pressed in and the watch wasn't running. I took it from the shelf, shook it gently for a minute or so and wore it. Started the chrono then reset and stopped it. Noticed the watch wasn't keeping time, then I began to see why.
    No chrono, no ticking. Chrono running, everything is fine. Reserve is fine at over 30 hours.

    Hello Sapphire1,
    I'm having exactly the same issue with an 6319-8002.
    > "No chrono, no ticking. Chrono running, everything is fine. Reserve is fine at over 30 hours. "
    Do you have any update. Did the service solve the problem?
    Regards
