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.

Everytime my self winding runs down, why do I spend hours trying to get started again?


An automatic watch receives it power from the mainspring, which is wound by hand (most watches) and from movement of the arm which causes the Oscillating Weight to spin around and wind the mainspring. The problem is that it takes many, many rotations of the weight to put enough winds on the mainspring to keep it going. If you have not worn the watch for 24 hours you need to put initial winds on the mainspring, either by turning the crown or by swinging the watch around 30-40 times. If the watch is in good mechanical condition, once you put the initial winds on it, you can put it on your wrist and it should run overnight if taken off. Most older Seiko watches cannot be wound by hand.

Watch will not wind and will not run or keep time. It appears to have over wound itself.


Not possible. The assumption that a watch is fully wound and then doesn't run is because the watch is over wound is invalid. The correct assumption is the watch has been fully wound and the watch has a problem. Could be anything. Automatic winding watches have a mainspring that slips or acts as a clutch when fully wound to avoid breaking from continuous winding.

I recently bought an invicata 8926A. It looks great, but I'm having some trouble winding it. When I wind it by moving it round and round for a few seconds, it runs for a while. But when i rest my...


This is certainly not normal. I had an automatic watch and because I wore it daily, I was unaware that is need any special treatment.

Automatic watches usually run for 2-3 days before stopping (if fully wound) and thrive on being used. My automatic watch was unsatisfactory when I bought it (new but very cheap) and I had it cleaned and it gave years of excellent service after that- perhaps that is your problem. I suggest that you contact their service center for advice.


If your watch is new then you should register it on their web site (go to http://www.invictawatch.com/invicta/services) and send it to them for repair.

If it is out of warranty, then you will see a price list on the above page (this is very unusual!) which will give you an indication of what you may have to pay to get it fixed.

I stop using mi nixon watch " THE 51-30" for a month and now it doesnt work.


Your watch is an automatic type which means that it is a mechanical self winding watch powered by a spring. It is wound up by a weight that moves when you are walking about and this watch must be worn to keep it operating.

If not worn, these watches will stop in 2 -3 days because the spring has run down.

Some automatic watches can be wound using the crown wheel (winder) but if yours cannot be wound in this way, then swing it from side to side gently for a few minutes and the watch will wind up.

These watches thrive on being used.

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.

Tag Heuer Tiger Wood Golf WAE1111.FT6004 Watch stops when not worn. Is there a problem


Hi,

An automatic watch needs to be worn, wound daily or placed on a watch winder to keep it going. It is not like a quartz watch that has a battery and can keep going when not worn. A modern automatic watch will run for about 36 - 48 hours on a full wind.

A quartz watch that stops like you describe is in need of a cleaning by a professional watchmaker. When this stopping occurs it is an indication the oils have dried out and the warmth from your body heats them so they are semi liquid again and the watch runs. but when the watch cools again the oils harden and the watch stops.

Hope this helps,

How to set the power reserve on timex automatic


Power reserve can not be set, as this is mechanical feature in watch which works along with watch winding. As soon as the watch is wound, the power reserve automatically is engaged and the indicator is showing how much power is left. Fully wound watch will show maximum power and completely unwound watch will show no power at all. All explained is for automatic and manually wound (spring driven) watches only. Rate me, plz.

My wifes recently repaired Rolex loses about an


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! :-)
