This Seiko 2205 has some serious wear in the bushings from the first reduction wheel pivots. It would only occasionally wind the second reduction wheel.
Thankfully I had a spare train wheel bridge and autowind, but even these were not in the greatest shape but did the job.
This looks like it could be a common failure on this movement, at least these women's watches have manual wind as well.
I like the crown pull to change the date on these.

I wonder if those holes in the upper barrel bridge and winding bridge could be closed up slightly with a convex stake and a few taps of a jeweler's hammer.

Maybe that is possible thanks for the heads up.
Never done that sort of thing before to a bushing, although I have a staking set.
I also just had a thought that after closing up the bushing with a few tappy taps I should press the brass bush out and reposition 180 degrees so the undamaged side takes the wear.
Thankfully I have spares that work. Maybe next time. You have made me think thanks.

I didn't have time to look up all of the part numbers but one plate and/or bridge is available at julesborel.com It is $29.

I have a 25 jewel version of the 2205. I wonder if some of the extra jewels are in that wear position? It is running well and I don't have a need to service it right now. I can't find the spec sheet for the 25 jewel version and I know I've seen it in the past.
