    Seiko Kinetic 5M43 freezes at the same time everyday

    I recently replaced the capacitor in my Seiko Kinetic (5M43-0B69) and everything is working great...except for the fact that it gets stuck at 5:30 on the dot every day. The second hand continues to function but the hour/minute hands won't move (neither does the day/date). I'm able to use the crown to move it past that time easily, I don't feel a hitch or anything to make me believe there is something wrong with the movement. Any ideas? When I reassembled it after replacing the capacitor could I have over tightened something? Any help or insight would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

    Does it do this on the same minute/hour both morning and night? It's possible the hands are binding on one another, and they got knocked slightly out of alignment during the capacitor change.

    Yes, happens at both instances (AM/PM). Am I now in the territory of taking it to someone to have it repaired?
