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.

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.

It stops working it will not stay on the correct time


This watch is a self winder and thrives on being used. When fully wound, they should run for 2-3 days and if they run right down then they need to be wound up and used to maintain operation.

I am not sure if this watch can be manually wound but try turning the crown in a clockwise direction. If this is not possible, to wind it up, wave it from side to side for a few minutes (200-300 times) and his should wind it sufficiently to run for a day or so.

Wearing the watch daily is sufficient to keep it going.

Watch will not wind. Wound too tight. How do you fix a watch that is wound too tight?


The best solution is to lightly tap on the watch, this will keep it running until the spring is unwound enough to run on it's own.

This watch will not keep working. I spin it around and it works for a min. or two.... is there a way to manually wind this watch?


An automatic watch can be wound up by holding them level and swinging it from side to side and several minutes (one maker said swing it 200-300 times).

Once fully wound, the watch should keep working if it is worn daily. Most automatic watches will run for 2-3 days if not worn.

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.

I don't know how to wind the watch....can you help?


WIND AT THE SAME TIME EVERY DAY. This is extremely important. In order to ensure that your watch keeps good time it must be wound at the same time every day. Most people like to do this at night before bed.
WIND ALL THE WAY. The watch must be wound all the way, or it will slowly lose the proper time and require constant resetting. Also, if not wound all the way, the watch may stop keeping time earlier than expected.
WIND IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. Most European watches wind clockwise when the face of the watch is pointing towards you. Determine which way your watch winds, and stick to that direction. To figure this out, try to turn it both ways. The wrong way will either be extremely loose, or extremely tight.
Tips & Warnings
Keeping your watch clean and free of dust and dirt will also add to its longevity.
Contact the watch's manufacturer for any special and/or specific care methods.
Don't under or over wind you watch. When you start to feel resistance, STOP.

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,

Juts got the watch, wound it, worked then stoped, wound dead


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.

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! :-)

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.
