Because of the way they work, it's quite hard for quartz movements to run consistently slow - so if you find one getting behind, it's usually a sign that it's stopping intermittently. It would do no harm to check that the crown is properly pushed in after you've reset it, but my guess is that the watch will benefit from a new battery. A.

Is it an automatic self wind or wind up? An automatic watch has a weight that winds the main spring and if you wind it by the crown it will not stop. If its one that you wind by hand then the watch should be wound daily at the same time...like right before bed or when she wakes up. Wind gently until it stops. That costly repair should come with a warranty so if she consistently winds daily and still loses time you need to send it back!
If the watch is an automatic then she can gently hold the watch in her hand and rock it back and forth a good 20 times or so and that will give it a good winding! This is a common issue we see at our watch repair business. Some people do not move enough during the day to keep an automatic movement wound. If thats the case then there is nothing ong with the repair, just make sure it gets a good daily wind! :-)

Without seeing the inside works (movement) of your new (to you) watch and its parts, it's impossible to tell exactly what is going on, but no need to worry, as that's what competent watchmakers are for. Probably just needs a new spring, which wear over time due to many factors, including temperature, shock and corrosion. Basically, when you wind up any mechanical watch (whether automatic or hand-wound, regardless of age), you're tightening the spring which in turn is what powers up the watch (powering up the gears as it returns to its original position--i.e., unwinds, accuracy dependent thus on the spring among other factors). Sounds to me like it just needs a routine service, mechanical watches being no different than are automobiles, which require regular service as well. In the case of a watch, this will entail a cleaning, fresh oil and regulation, with old springs often simply swapped out for a new ones at that time by a watchmaker; routine services are a standard procedure which can be performed by any competent independent watchmaker, and don't cost a lot either. Most watch manufacturers recommend such service be carried out every 5 years or so, and while some can go longer (especially if not worn daily, same as a car when it comes to oil changes/service intervals), it's important to remember to service your mechanical time pieces which, if you do, will provide you with decades of reliable time keeping. All the best.
