    Seiko SNKP01 wonít manually wind

    Morning guys

    I recently picked up a Seiko SNKP01 Automatic for my father in law. He is really pleased with it but it doesnít seem to want to manually wind. Weíve actually had 2 now, the last was damaged on arrival, but they are both the same.

    The manual suggests it should be easy but I donít know whether thatís a generic booklet.

    The reserve is pretty good but if he hasnít worn it a few days his only option seems to give it a good shake before setting and wearing it.

    Just wondering if anyone else has come across this?

    Thanks

    Darren

    I think this model has a 7S26 movement which does not have manual winding - automatic winding only.

    That would seem likely. How do I find out which movement it has?

    Look at the caseback, where it says '7S26-04J0'. That means it has a 7S26 movement.

    20 taps on the palm is usually a good start to put a decent amount of power into these before wearing.
