Dj date not changing

I have an early 60ís dj with a 1560 Movement which I had serviced last year and is keeping very good time
Today when I put it on it was still showing 9 I advanced the date but it will not change
The watchmaker who did the service has had a strike so I cannot take it back to him so
Can anyone suggest a uk watchmaker who will fix this problem without wanting to do a service

There are several good watchmakers in the UK as members, and perhaps one will be along shortly.

What I will say is that the watch needs to be partially disassembled to get to the date wheel, and if it is a drive pinion, or other failed part, even more needs to be taken apart.

A full service is primarily labor costs, so expecting a significantly lower cost when as much labor is required for a repair may be a rare bird.

It clicks at 12 and moves a bit so I guess itís just adjustment ??
The date ring is under the dial so hopefully it can be fixed with a mimimal strip down ??

It's possible the disc has slipped from the securing clip (1-14) and has raised just enough the date advance pin (between 5-6) is just missing turning the wheel. That's best case scenario, it gets more involved from there.
