Strange issue with an Automatic


Recommended Posts

I think you need to establish if its the watch or the winder before you go to the bother or returning the watch.

If you put the watch in the winder and then the winder in the tumble dryer (got to be on a cool setting similar to room temp to be a fair test)

then if the watch is working after its been tumbled then you will know it was the winder that was at fault.

Just send it back Bricey. If the next one does a wobbler then the winder is your culprit. By the way, what watch is it? 

It's the Eterna I recently purchased.

The winders fine, it has 6 rotors, no problems with the other 5 watches and I've alternated which watch is on with winder.

If the watch has a display case back see if you can safely attach it to the winder back facing out, and see what the rotor is doing. I'd do it along with one that is functioning properly and see if there is any difference in the rotor movement.

Wish I'd thought of that it is genius in its simplicity.

I did (at another posters suggestion) view it from the back and turn it over slowly a little like the winder would, and as I said before intermittently the rotor in the back would catch and stick and stay that way unless you gave it a bit of a shake.

I figure on the wrist the random movements and particularly the odd sharp movement (like dodging a nerf bullet, or clipping a 9 year old ear because you didn't dodge quick enough, for example) dislodge the rotor, whilst the slow smooth movement of the winder doesn't.

I could stick a nerf target on the winder and potentially catch two birds with one plastic firearm.
