Why does the time stop after six to eight hours? Do I have to wind it often?


I'm guessing it's a Fully Automatic watch,which if worn all day should store enough 'kenetic energy'without manual winding!! You can buy watch winders on eBay that constantly move the watch when your not wearing it to keep it wound up!!

My automatic omega watch stops after 20-24 hours eventhough i am promised it should last for 48hours if worn continuously for 48 hours.


Almost all automatic wristwatches made today have an 18-24 hour "power reserve" when fully wound. A 24 hour reserve is actually very, very good. I can't think of a modern self-winding wristwatch that has a 48-hour power reserve because that would require a super-long or much larger mainspring than would fit in a modern watch movement / case. There may be some hand-crafted or super-premium watches that can do this, but only a very select few.
Manual wind railroad pocket watches, which were some of the finest and most accurate mechanical watch movements ever made, generally had a 40-hour power reserve. That extra capacity was created by using a large mainspring to store the extra energy. These mainsprings could be used because of the much larger size of these watches, compared to modern wristwatches.
If you are concerned about keeping your watch ticking, even when you're not wearing it, you might want to look at a "watch winder"--basically, a small watch case that rotates the watch for you, keeping the automatic winding rotor moving and the watch ticking. In addition, sitting at a computer all day will wind your watch much less than walking and otherwise moving around. Even though you're wearing your watch, if you're not moving, you're not winding it.

IT IS AN ORVIS AUTOMATIC AND IT STARTS AND STOPS AND DOESN'T KEEP CORRECT TIME.


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
When you first receive your automatic watch, you must give the watch an initial pre-wind. If you wear it everyday, it will continue to wind itself on your wrist when you move around and walk. If you stop wearing it for more than approximately 2 days, the watch will need to be reset, but will then automatically wind itself once you start wearing it again. The disadvantage to this is pretty clear. Your watch does not t keep time if you do not wear it constantly. The advantages are that you will never have to replace a battery, the watch keeps great time when it is running, and most of all, this type of movement is exactly what the originals use! If your Automatic is losing or gaining time in a 24-hour period the watch needs to be adjusted. All of our automatics have an adjustment screw on the movement just like the originals. Any local jeweler can service these watches.
Best regards! Jewel

How do you get started to wind a BMW watch. There is no resistance when I wind the crown. There does nt seem to be any plastic or anything in the way. I ve set the date successfully. Its a BMW Chrono...


mcdevito75 here, BMW watch, nice watch, Actually there are 2 ways to start winding an automatic or self wind watch. Since you feel no resistance in the winder (crown) which if you did, would mean the automatic mechanism is attached by gear to the mainspring and winding the crown (stem) would start the winding process. Without any resistance winding the crown, your automatic mechanism is free-lance as a way of saying, in your watch which simply means your BMW watch winds solely on wrist / arm motion. First, make sure you hear the automatic mechanism moveing inside the watch when you move the watch in almost any direction, now simply hold the watch in your hand and with a rocking motion, say from 12--to 6 rock your hand back and forth for about 30 seconds. You can also make circular motions with the watch in your hand for 30 seconds, any motion that will cause the automatic movement in your watch to move will, start the winding process. After you see you watch has started, simply wear your watch to keep it wound.

Bulova Millenia 100 m,stops running,move it to wind,starts up


When you say "wave wind" do you mean you're waving it around to wind it with the self-winding mechanism? If so, that will only keep it running briefly as you're experiencing. Manually wind the crown about 40 turns clockwise to "fill the tank" and wearing it daily will keep it topped off. Anytime you don't wear it for a day, manually wind it again. As for the cleaning, the inside of the watch doesn't get real dirty but over time the lubricants wear out and thicken which makes the watch run slowly or not as long as it has to work harder to move the gears through the thickened lubricant. A watchmaker can disassemble and clean the old lube out with solvents and then reassemble the watch with fresh lubricants.

I have a Croton watch. It is a automatic.I can't get it to run.I was informed that the watch had to be wound. The crown{stem} has four settings.I shak it and it runs for about 15 seconds


In the first position (closest to the case but not screwed down if it's a screwdown crown) wind the crown clockwise about 40 turns and it should run fine. The automatic winding system relies on wrist movement to spin a weighted rotor that winds the watch. When you're not wearing the watch or not moving much when you do have it on, it will run down and you have to manually wind it to get it going again. If you wear it everyday and are reasonably active you may never have to wind it but take it off for a day and you will.

I just purchased my son a Seiko Divers Automatic 200M watch for graduation. For the first few days, the watch worked, but ran about 15-20 minutes fast. Now it won't move at all? Tried wearing it for 8...


Hi mtrahan99. My advice is to take it back and get it replaced, particularly if you have only had it a few days. If they won't exchange it or refund you, get a repair under the guarantee. Automatic watches (and Seiko actually make some very good ones) don't need to be worn all the time to wind them, and the fact that it ran so fast and has now stopped would indicate something major like problems with the mainspring. Return it! Hope this helps; Eagle58

Wrong time


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.
