I NEED HELP!
MY 17013 HAS DEVELOPED A NEW HABIT...IT WILL RUN FOR A FEW DAYS, AND THEN STOP.
iT HAS A FRESH BATTERY.
When it stops, I reset the time, shake it and it starts again and runs for another day or so.Runs fine when not wearing it, problem ONLY when being worn.
Any advice greatly appreciated

I had a problem where it would run but the minute hand would get slow. It turned out to be a loose canon pinion. That is not too difficult a fix but definitely something a watch maker needs to do.

If your watch stops completely, it could be a more serious problem. Like the step motor is bad.

The other thing to look at is the battery and if it was installed properly. There's a brown colored piece that lies between the negative side of the battery and the cover that keeps the battery in place. If that is not installed properly, it may not work properly.

Good luck.

A fascinating thread.

I am thinking of adding one to my collection...
Prices seem to be going up.
The 17000 appeals to me.

Does anyone have opinion on this one, please?

Looks a little over polished. Just saw some crispy 17000ís land at Perusia Watches (@perusiawatches on instagram) send them a message.

As has been said it looks over polished.

I'd also pass on that one at that price.

Look for much sharper edges.

Perusia Posted 3 17000's on their instagram story yesterday. One MKI dial, two MKII dials, all unpolished almost NOS condition. I inquired about the MKI he said 5700euro, if you're in the market It doesn't get better than that. Im all set w/ my collection, but for some reason still find myself looking around

Hi all! Recently bought a 1979 17000 which appears to have a non tritium dial and a non open 6&9 date and mint hands. So I assume it may have had an overhaul. However it's losing 2 sec a day and have noticed it loses a lot more time and randomly stops ticking when I have my air conditioner running and my room cools. Seems to struggle when the watch is at 20-22c.

Anyone ever had such issues?

Guess it's off for a service. Also battery was replaced hoping it would resolve the issue.

Thanks!

not an expert but:

- 2s a day seems like normal drift
- when the battery runs out it will do a half-tick back and then forward, so it looks stuck, then it stops altogether. See how it performs after the battery swap.
- 1979 should have open 6&9.
