Seiko 7005-8020

Got a question for the Seiko experts. Did this watch come with this band originally?

Nice watch Mike. I've looked at those too.

I thought my bracelet was original, that's mainly why I bought this one. Unfortunately it won't keep running. Sets fine, calendar and hands move easy, but it won't keep running.
Next step, who to send it to?

Wow, That's awesome.. I didn't even consider that, let alone think a replacement might be available.
So far, I can't even get the back off. But, I have a nice local jeweler who will do that for me.
The watch wouldn't be original, but so what. This is an old 7005, run of the mill.
Thanks

Update on the old 7005. Got the back off and discovered the automatic winder is not engaging.
Wonder if that's just dirt.

Thanks Peter, I already did that. It's been running great for nearly a day now.
So, If I can figure out what's wrong with the push pull palls or the wheel it winds, or whatever else it is, I think it will be a good old watch.
I'm going to open her up and take a hard look at that part again. Might be dirt?

Peter, et al,
The Seiko runs steady for two days or so on a full wind.
Think I've narrowed down the problem to loose bearings in the rotor. And I can see telltale signs of wear against the outer bridge plates.
So, what is the cure? I guess mainly, where can I get parts? Or is the rotor repairable?
Thanks,
Dave

I would buy movement/parts from ebay and replace worn down parts/rotor to keep it original
