Re: seamaster automatic not winding

: Hi,

: Short story - I sold my seamaster automatic chrono, and following
: shipping the buyer reports it isn't winding automatically any
: more. He says it does wind manually and is otherwise fine.
: He's been quoted £385 for a fix, which sounds excessive for what
: seems like it should be a relatively cheap fix.

: Can anyone comment:

: Is this a common/known problem?

: What part (if any) does this sound likely to be caused by?

: Does this price sound reasonable?

Which Seamaster auto chrono? -- there are at least a dozen models and at least a half-dozen different movements that have been sold by Omega dating back to the 1970s

: I packaged the watch with lots of extra padding, and in it's own
: original boxes. Is this the sort of fault that could have
: occurred because of rough handling?

: thanks for any help,
: --justin
