So I've got a bit of a problem. This morning I woke up to find that the hands on my watch weren't moving and were stuck at around 2 o' clock(obviously 2am). I pulled out the crown to set the time and as soon as I moved the hands the second hand started moving again. It's been running fine all day but I've noticed the second hand's ticks are kind of jumpy, as in it wiggles a bit rather than a dead stop.

Any idea what went wrong or how serious this is? Should I take it to a repair shop?

It's almost certainly still under warranty because it only came out a year ago, the problem is I don't have a warranty paper, it just didn't have one.

I know the battery wasn't low because I always put it near the window when I take it off and it never did the 2-second tick that indicates low battery.

It's presumably a fly-by-wire, where the hands are more independent than a single drive train and where the watch microprocessor knows where the hands are (a basic quartz watch doesn't need to know what time it is, just when to advance the hands next).

Well it looks like that's not happening, apparently Seiko will only honor their warranty if you buy it at an authorized store, which I didn't because it was only sold in Japan.
