Seiko logo "Dissappeared"

Question

Help, pulling my hair out wondering.

I have a 1980's Seiko 5  and have worn it for a few years, suddenly the Logo above the 5 has literally disappeared. Where ??????????????????????

I have looked and looked with various magnifying glasses and it is not under the glass or on the dial anywhere?

Only thing I could think of is did it somehow slip into the day date area? But it keeps time and day/date perfectly?

You can see the 2 mounting dots on the face but that's all.

Its a 7009-3040E if that helps. Is it expensive to replace as its an heirloom , also how much would a new "glass replacement " cost .

I am a newbee so be gentle

Looks like you're gonna need open surgery to remove a rogue bodypart...

It's probably fallen through the day/date window and hopefully wedged somewhere safe.. but it will need removed if you want the watch to survive.

OK thanks, I guess what I should have asked was "Could it fit in the day date slot?" that must be where it is.

Ok so if I open it up remove the stem , how easy is it to get a replacement glass , if its not plastic and how hard to press it in?

Lots of questions from a newbee thanks
