I bought a watch I was hunting for for months. It’s Seiko snzh53 and I found it used on eBay. once it arrived, I’ve noticed that the day/date setting didn’t work. I contacted the seller and he agreed to give me a partial refund so I could fix it. And I did 😉
I’m nowhere to the quality and knowledge of a professional, but having some spare parts I decided to open it up and find the problem.
The first photo shows that one of the white parts has one of its teeth chipped off so the date wheel didn’t spin. I replaced it and it all works now.
Man…. I love mechanical watches..
