Default Apparently This Was The Problem😢

Hey Guys if you Did or Did not Know one of my Main Diving Watches I used to FreeDive with on a Regular Basis:- My Citizen Eco Zilla after 10yrs Needed a New Capacitor But it also had a problem with all of a Sudden the Date would not change no matter what I did and for no apparent Reason🤔

Come forward my Buddy and Resident Pipster “Pippy” Who offered to take a look at it for me (He also wanted To See an Eco Zilla In the Flesh) so off it Went.

Mmmm seems the Issue is this(Below)and Apart from the Watch being bought brand new over 10yrs ago and never opened I personally am just putting this problem down to wear?? Maybe??

Pip Thank you Sir for the Sherlock Holmes intuitiveness To Find the Problem And I just hope you can Fix it🙏🙏🙏

Thanks for the heads up Neilo! Informative post. I hope the Ecozilla comes back to you stronger than before.

Hope your Ecozilla comes back good as new and ready for more dives! I've had problems with the plastic date wheel on 7S26 too although it was down to my hamfistedness!

Does it suffer from the "No No" period of date/times adjustment like a lot of 7txx movements do?

E168 movement ? If so pretty common in eco-drives. Haven’t seen that in any of mine yet, thanks for the post!

Thank You all who replied Gentlemen👍
I assume This can be repaired and hopefully for Pips sake the part is available.
Pips concern is what has broken off may have affected Something else in the movement and is still in there.
