Question about Rado Diastar Anatom Jubile watch
I usually alternate 3 automatic watches so it wouldnt stop working, i left the the rado diastar for several days, and when i tried to use it, it would not start, i usually shake the watch gently for several seconds to start it and it usually starts but this time it would start.....
what gives and how could i make it work again the watch was bought last september 08
The shaking is not the best way to restart the automatic watch as it puts slight strain on watch balance wheel and hairspring (most delicate part in watch).
As watch balance wheel is positioned paralel(leveled) to watch dial, you have to spin your watch back and forth a few times quite quickly.
(Imagine you are turning steering wheel in your car- thats the right motion). Before doing that wind up your watch a few times manually.
Right after doing that observe the seconds hand and if it is ticking just a little bit or ticking back and forth and then stops- your watch has jammed gear train and this is the reason why it stops.
If you don't have seconds hand- after shaking your watch listen for ticking and again- if it stops after short run, the gear train is to blame. In this case you will need watchmakers help as special skills and tools are needed to sort this out.
Do not forget to rate, please.
