I recently bought a watch, looks new has a 2892-2. Even after being on a winder or wearing it for a while it the seconds hand always stops at around the 8 mark, I have to tap it a couple of times for it to continue.

When you wind it manually (forward or clockwise) it winds the mainspring. Only need to watch it 5 or 6 times if it's completely stopped you wearing it will do the rest. If you going to get a automatic winder get one that will wind in both directions. It will give a few revolutions clockwise and then we'll go reverse counterclockwise.
Hope this answers your questions thank you.
Self winding watches need motion ( wrist twist) without they can stop. Sometimes just shake your wrist for a few seconds. I purchased a winder box for times I don't wear. ( Amazon)!
it is belt driven winder, rotates watch 5 minutes every hour.
I believe the Roadster uses the 2892 movement and as such should wind in either direction. Find a competent watchmaker and ask him/her to check the automatic winding mechanism for proper rotation. I am assuming this is a real Cartier.
mcdevito75 here, Kinetic means motion, energy, with watches I'm not sure, although it could mean your watch is a windup-----------OR!! if you watch is AUTOMATIC it could mean, any motion of the watch will wind it, or it could mean if you watch is automatic and stops, un-winds completely after say 30 hours you can wind it to get an initial start then wear your watch to keep it wound. In your travels visit a small watch repair shop in your area for more info.
If you're supposed to swing it, that means it's an automatic or kinetic watch and it charges it's battery using an internal winder that moves as the watch moves. Try wearing it for a while, being mindful of moving your hand, or if that doesn't work try using a watch winder. If none of that works it probably needs a new movement. Take it to your dealer to submit for warranty.
You can wind this watch until it is snug. If it does not continue to run during normal wear then you should have the watch looked at. The swing weight or main spring maybe malfunctioning. If you can return it under warranty that would be best.
Your watch is an automatic watch which means it winds itself as long as you are wearing it. If you don't wear it for several days it will stop working. To solve this situation buy an automatic watch winder to keep your watch in while you are not wearing it and it will keep the correct time.
