A number of possible reasons. If it is old then needs a good cleaning and proper lubrication. If it ever got moisture inside then water could have cause some damage. If very old then mainspring could be getting tired and needs to be replaced. Also possible damage to the hairspring from various reasons. Sounds an expensive watch so take it to a good repair shiop

Is it better to keep mechanical watches continuously fully wound or just to wind them up about once a week. Mine has stopped even though it has been fully wound every day.It does go for several hours when...


I don't think that how you wind a watch will effect its performance, so long as some power is in the spring.

If you have had the watch for some time, then it might benefit from having it cleaned.

MY INVICTA IS AN AUTOMATIC WATCH. I'VE TURNED THE CROWN SEVERAL TIMES BUT WITHIN MINUTES THE SECOND HAND STOPS


If hand winding does not work then try waving it gently from side to side for 100-200 times (yes! that is what some makers recommend).

Since self winding watches thrive on use, it is best to wear it daily to keep it functioning.

If the watch is not worn for a day, is it normal for it to stop or slow down? Vintage SS mens datejust, oyster perpetual.


mcdevito75 here, Yes it is normal, especially if your Rolex is an automatic watch. The motion of your Wrist / Hand keeps your watch wound thru the Counter balance on the movement, as the counter balance turns it winds the mainspring little by little, thus keeping your watch wound. Once you take off your watch, if long enough the mainspring simply un-winds and slows and will eventually stop your watch completely. You can keep your Rolex wound even when you take it off by means of a watch winder, a small machine that will keep your watch in motion, or by hand, by rocking the watch back and firth in your hand for about 30 seconds, say before you gpo to bed at night, this way there is always some wind to your watch.

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.

Watch erratic. Slows suddenly between days of working well.


Sounds like a failing battery to me. Its very common for a watch to loose time when battery needs to be changed.

Keeping 2008 breitling cockpit watch running


You have to wind the watch till it is fully wound (significant resistance should be felt).
It doesn't matter how many times you wind it (1 or even 40) - what matters is the strength of the spring.
Do as follows:
At any time in the morning wind the watch up till you feel there is no more winding left (should be quite tough). Memorize the time you did it.
Leave the watch (or wear it) till it stops completely.
Count the hours your watch did work (from the time you wound it).
Now you know exact power reserve for your watch.
It is advised to wind the watch 2-3 hours before the power reserve is gone.

Rate me.
, please.

Self winding does not work


Could be its just not a good quality watch, you didn't state the make. if its an invicta, then tbh, its to be expected they can be very hit and miss. You can buy demagnetizer for about $10, £6-7. Things like speakers, computer monitors or strong electrical field can magnetize a watch making them perform very inconsistently.

Problem winding a Invicta Skeloton Mechanical Stainless Watch


The Tag Heur repair center says an automatic watch must go through an "initiation" process. They recommend winding manually 40 revolution of the crown clockwise. You must wear an automatic watch at least eight hours per day. Repat the initiation if the watch is not worn for 20 hours or so.

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.
