I inherited a Mickey Mouse wind up watch that I'm guessing is from around the 50s-60s. The watch guy at our mall said it was really clean on the inside.
My problem is, this watch won't keep time. Gradually it just starts slowing down until it stops. I feel like I'm winding it too much. When I do wind it, I never feel any "tension" to signal me that it's wound enough. I don't want to overwind it.
Any ideas? Should I take it somewhere else to get serviced? Should I just wind it multiple times a day (if this is the case, I'll probably never wear it), should I wind it more in the morning?
I work 12 hour shifts. I have already worked 9 hours and I have wound this watch twice, not including the initial wind in the morning. Both times, it was losing time.
I really would like to wear this and I'll be bummed if I can't. My husband spent a lot of money replacing the band.
