The bezel should not just ‘fall off’ if properly fitted and would take quite a knock to make it come off accidentally,was it fitted properly in the first place?
Regards time keeping I assume its a automatic (as there are quartz variations about) depends whether its fully wound a lot of Seiko movements cannot be hand wound so need a good shake to get some energy stored up in the spring.
My Seiko 5 can take a day of normal wear to power it up properly,after that I adjust the time again and then its normally good,this is all from a totally wound down state.
Did they supply proof of servicing i.e.receipt or timing slip.Posted 4 years ago
it’s an auto and has been worn for several days and still running slow.
The bezel felt a little loose, but not having had one before, I did not know if that was right or wrong. I can see why the seller is annoyed – he has nothing to go on other than my word, it’s just irritating when folk ignore you.
I think I’ll escalate it and see what happens.Posted 4 years agounovoloMember
I take it you were using the ball point pen nib method, how much resistance is there when turning the bezel does it feel quite firm or loose still ,if loose it may be worth removing the bezel checking everything is clean and in place then refitting.
When I replaced mine there was a definite click when it was seated properly.
Seiko movements cannot be handwound
Note i said not all ,the 7S26 cannot be for example and that is probably one of the most common movements they use.Posted 4 years ago
Back on topic you might be best buying a case with a knackered movement in for spares such as the bezel.
And regards the timekeeping you can try regulating it yourself but you will only need the tiniest of adjustments to make a difference.
