I just received this watch yesterday and it does not
keep the time it stops. Can you please help me?
Please hand-wind 20 times, it will run. If you wear an
automatic watch several hours or have sufficient movement of your hands in one
day, you do not need to hand-wind as it is already wound automatically by its
self-winding rotor on the back. Otherwise treat it as manual-winding watch,
hand-winding 20-30 times each day. The majority of mechanical watches can run
more than 36 hours but less than 48 hours after full-winding.
When you wind this watch, do you go back and forth or
just one way?
Go one way only - turn the crown
clockwise because only the clockwise motion adds energy to the internal spring
that stores power. You will be more experienced in playing mechanical watches
as time goes by.
