    How long should my Automatic movement stay wound?

    Hi all,

    New guy here. I just purchased the Tissot T0444302605100 T-Sport PRS 516 Black Day Date Dial Watch last week and I find that as long as I wear it, it stays wound for me. But, it will not be running in the morning. It seems to only keep working for about 4-5 hours while not being worn. This is my first automatic movement watch so I don't know if my expectations are too high, but I seem to remember reading that it should last 24-48 hours. Any education you can provide would be helpful.

    Did you fully wind it before and/or after wearing it? (wind until it clicks)

    I don't know if it has ever been fully wound. I do agitate it for 30 seconds or so before wearing it, then again after I take it off. I didn't know to listen for a click. I'll play with it a bit.

    Yeah give it a full wind and then test how long it holds a 'charge' Check the manual but sometimes it requires 50-60 turns of the crown.

    This doesn't really count, as I don't own an automatic Tissot....But, my Omega Seamaster automatic, when fully charged holds strong for roughly 50 hours.
