I need some advise.

I performed a 6138 movement transpant today. I had to take the crown in and out a couple of times - now it won't hand wind.

The watch still runs. The quickset day and date work. I still have to press the button to remove the crown. The stem looks undamaged.

What do I do now?

Hi Matt:

This may be helpful. If you check out these images from the 6138 service guide, it may be possible that the winding pinion is not in place or missing and the stem didn't go through it when the crown assembly was inserted. Here's a couple of images from the manual to assist you in diagnosing the problem.
