If you wind it gently, (do not apply a great force), it will slip in you fingers when it is fully wound.
If it stops frequently, it could be that it needs cleaning. As it is a very old watch, specialist advice might be worth paying for.

These watches are self winding (mechanical spring), so need to be worn (or gently oscillated) to wind them up.
The catalogue for this watch says it should run for 72 hours when fully wound.
Depending on when the watch was made, it could be that it needs a clean.
Try wearing it for a few days to see if it keeps going.

Well, you begin with the correct premise. Your watch isn't wound too tight. It just isn't running so you made the 'assumption' it was because it is fully wound. Your actual problem is the watch isn't running and therefore the spring is not running down. It may be not running for many reasons. Suggest you take it to a watchmaker and he/she may be able to help you.
