Default Seiko 7T32 Alarm

Hi,
Hoping someone can give me a little advice on a 7T32 watch that I have purchased.
The problem is when I press the top right button for the stopwatch/sweep hand the alarm sounds. The hand does sometimes move and operates as it should but when I stop with the top right button it swings around to the 12 o'clock position which should only happen when the top left button is pressed.
Hope that makes sense.
Kind regards.

Reset the IC, page 17.

It cured a few things with my 7T32

If it were me I'd carefully remove the battery, let it sit for a while- install a new 399 and do a full reset - you must touch the ac and + on the battery following a battery change
Don has inserted the ic reset instructions- also be sure to zero the sub dials too

Thank you for replying so quickly everyone.
I have just tried these suggestions but unfortunately, it's doing the same thing.
Thank you though.

How about try to operate it outside of the case- maybe the pushers are gummed up

Hi Lewie, I have taken the movement out of the case and it operates the same but without the alarm going off. Everything looks immaculate in there.
I have noticed that when I pull the Alarm crown out (all the way), the stopwatch/sweep hand rotates as if I was pressing the top left button.

Bent setting lever, due to crown stem being pushed in too forcefully, perhaps ?

Hi, just an update on the problem that I had with this watch, I decided to purchase another movement in the form of the Y182B movement.

I manage to get one online that was still in a Pulsar case for 6 and thought I’ve nothing to loose.

I took the movement out of the Pulsar removing hands, face and date wheel (need to change this for the one in the Seiko).

I removed the Seiko movement and bits and started to swap the parts over. After some time the hands were back on and the movement was back in the case, AC and + of the battery and it started ticking.
Well, it was going but when I deployed any of the buttons it did not operate the stopwatch.

I took it all apart again, then decided to take the circuit block from the Y182 and put it into the 7T32. Put everything back together, AC and + of the battery and it’s all working. Yippee!

It’s working a treat and keeping perfect time.

Just like to thank everyone for their time on this.
