A3186 keeps getting stuck at 56s

Recommended Posts

 

Recently got this new gmt-mster 2 from toro but the movement keeps stopping at 56s. It will easily get going again but it does not keep accurate time. I haven’t had it a full month. Do I send it back to china or are there some EU watchsmiths that can fix this?

The second hand is probably contacting the crystal at that spot, a pretty easy fix - go local for sure.

Any advice on how to find a local watchsmith that will take a look at a rep?

I'd check around the forums to see if anyone is nearby or has a recommendation. Otherwise, pick a local Indy guy and just ask, the worst they can do is say "no".

There’s no local “indy guy”

Open it up, take out the stem and remove the movement/dial and just slightly press the second hand in or if it tips up slightly bend it down close to the minute hand tip.  Reassemble it all and bob is your uncle :P

I don't think you should open it up unless you know what you're doing. You could make things worse. Most likely the second hand is barely touching another hand. I think ssteel is your best bet. He can also ck your movement and time it if need be.
