Second hand not moving.....watch keeping time......Any ideas?

Recommended Posts

 

It's been a great week for buying watches for me this week. The first one was a 1953 6298 pre-Explorer at a pawnshop in Tennessee and the second a 1989 1002 with box and papers. The 1002 is running about a minute fast per hour and the seconds hand isn't moving. I'm taking it in for service next week but was wondering if this is just a case of a dirty movement rather than something broken. Any thoughts? CC

Nice find, I had a second hand loose on the shaft once, you could see it wanting to move though. Any chance you could post pictures of the 6298, that's my Birth year, I'm saving up for one for my next watch.

Well good luck with your watch, hope it's simple.
