Its always a pleasure to service a Seiko and this month was made extra special by servicing not one but two Seiko chronographs ( one being my own ). This watch came in for a long overdue service, being a watch thats been handed down the family line the owner wanted it running back in tip top condition.
The watch was running but the chronograph could not be stopped or reset, the date function had also completely ceased and timing was sketchy at best. The most common problems with this watch are often the most dreaded but fortunately the chronograph wheel was not in bad shape and the original winding gear for the inner bezel was still present and rust free.
