  1. Thanks, I gave it a try. The stopwatch function has started working again, but the reset (i.e. send the hand back to the 12 o'clock position) is intermittent and sends the hand to a random position. The normal second hand isn't running so I'm guessing the main watch hasn't been jump-started
  2. There is a good photo of the movement here - mine is exactly the same as this. Please could you take a look and see what you think Ah sorry - the link in full is: https://www.seiko7a38.com/apps/forums/topics/show/7874323

  4. The base of the battery compartment is black and looks plastic. Directly under the 2 copper-coloured contacts is some kind of very small white object - maybe a cutout in the black base, can't really see.
  5. Hi jmm1 - I just picked up the watch and the stopwatch hand was running, and so I played around with that for a while. The stopwatch function seemed to work ok except that when you reset it the hand didn't always return to the correct position. The normal second hand was not working. I then opened up the watch, removed the battery and cleaned the 2 copper-coloured contacts underneath (which looked pretty clean if I'm honest). However, when I replaced the battery the stopwatch was no longer working and so the watch seems lifeless again. Any ideas...? Thanks
  6. Hi Everybody - my first post, forgive me if I make any rookie mistakes: I have an RAF pilot's Seiko watch, the type issued to Harrier pilots in the mid-90s (seems to be referred to as the 'Gen 2 Chronograph' and has the P on the face). Over the last couple of years it started occasionally losing time, and now it's stopped altogether. I changed the battery, that made no difference, so I'm guessing that it needs a repair or perhaps a new movement. I would be very grateful if someone could advise me how to get it repaired in the UK. Thanks in advance for your help Arnie
