Question about Rolex Mens Airking Watch
I left the watch for a week when going on hols, and on return it had stopped(as it hadnt been moved) but since then Ive worn it, but it wont continue working after about a minute or so, no matter how much I move it around - presume it needs a 'service'?
Automatic, or "self-winding" watches get their power from movement of your wrist throughout the day. Unless you're quite active the amount of movement is just about enough to keep it running till the next day. However, if you let the watch run down completely as you did when you were away, there is no reserve power left. The solution is simple: just manually wind the watch and you'll be good to go. To manually wind the watch unscrew the crown as if you were going to set the watch but do not pull it out as would for setting. Wind the watch about 40-50 turns and it will run fine if you wear it every day.
