. . . as of yesterday my 2 1/2 month old AT 2503.33 (white w/blue markers) had been running like a top. I don't have winder - just wore it 3-4 times a week and gave the stem a few turns every night to keep it going.
Wore it all day Tuesday. Woke Wednesday morning and discovered it was stopped at 10:30 pm. No biggie - must've forgotten to wind it. I'll just give it a few turns and- wha? Nothing. OK, I must've goofed the crown pull out. 30 turns and its going. Until it stops a few minutes later. OK, let's just give it a few wrist shakes. There, that's the ticket. There it goes, it's all good- . . no. Stopped.
So I bring it to the office with the intention of walking in to the AD and demanding some kind of action. For kicks, I give watch a few turns and it starts humming. It's been going 24 hours now and hasn't lost a second.
So now I'm stumped. Take it to the AD and report the problem? Wear it for a while and see if it happens again? I dunno.
I'm not totally freaked - it's a machine. Machines sometimes break. It's well under warranty. Hell, my BMW X3 was in the shop a week after I bought it with an electrical issue. I get it that stuff happens.
But I'm toying with the idea of asking for an exchange. Like i said, its been not quite 3 months. I love the watch but . . . damn.
Just thought it was interesting given the comments here of late. Insight welcomed.
