Default Issue on a GS 5722, need some help.


I have a Grand seiko 5722 of 1965 and this watch has sometime a issue when I pull and specially when I push the crown in. It only happens once in a while but frequently enough to be worried about.
I brought the watch to be serviced and told the watchmaker about it but the problem persist. Maybe he did not encounter the problem (of course it never happens when you want it to happens).

I wish I could know what part of that "pretty standard" self winding mechanism is "probably" faulty. Of course I know that the only way would be to dismantle it by a professional again. Now I am asking amateur or professional of the forum who knows what "could" cause this. It seems that a part might be faulty.

The problem is when I pull the crown out to position 1 or 2 from its crown in position (position 0), position 1 and 2 work fine (1 for date and 2 for setting the time) but when I want to push the crown in (to position 0) again, the crown goes fully in (normal) but the position is not 0 but 1. (if I turn at that stage, it changes the date, not wind). then if I pull it it goes on position 2 only. It does not want to go back to its 0 position (winding position). Finally it is only after many attemps and with some luck (apparently) that it return to its 0 position and everything goes fine again.

What are your thought ?

Would you know what faulty part would "probably" need to be replaced ? ... a spring ? (the "click spring" ?)

Thank you for your help!
