Auto rotor movement inhibited when crown screwed in
I just received a brand new DOXA SUB 1000T. I have been wearing it proudly along with my Marine Master. Recently I looked down at my wrist and to my horror the watch had stopped!!! How can that be I thought? This is an automatic watch with an impressive power reserve. The watch had been hand wound about 30 rotations before I put it on. I wore it 24/7 until it stopped.
I put the watch to my ear and shook it gently in a circular motion but to my surprise I could not hear the rotor movement. I loosened the crown screw and wound the watch by hand then before screwing the crown back in I again listened to see if I could hear the rotor by gently swaying the watch in a circular motion. This time the rotor was working as it should. I then screwed in the crown, as one normally would, and I could no longer hear any rotor movement.
THIS IS NOT GOOD!!!
