Hi all,

First post on here.

So, I did my first Seiko mod last week, a submariner homage on a SNFZ17. I thought all was good but have two issues.

The second hand was intermittently stopping the watch. Not always when in contact with other hands at either end. Iv taken it off for now and the watch runs fine.

More worrying is the date no longer functions. Also if I pull the crown it doesn't engage the date either. It was fine, then a bit clucky and wouldn't change now doesn't engage at all. Is it likely the stem or inside the movement?

Still need to put new bezel insert in with a line dot. Hope I can get the second hand seated right. The date I might have to chalk up to being cack handed.
