Hey all - hoping someone can help me with a mystery. Iím not new to automatic watches but not the most knowledgeable so maybe itís just something obvious Iím missing.
Iím giving my dad this vintage Seiko for his birthday - I believe it to be from his birth year, a manual wind 66B. However, anytime I pick it up and move it around without winding, it starts to run. The longer I keep it moving, longer it seems to run - though it will stop.
What am I missing here? Is this just essentially jump starting whatever was previously wound? Or is it in someway winding it, even though it doesnít have a rotor? Iím sure this is a very basic, novice question but I am stumped. Itís always been my assumption that manual wind would do nothing unless...well...manually wound.
Any info would be greatly appreciated - would love to learn!
