I have a Vostok that I wear as a beater occasionally--The GAZ 14 Limo. Since I bought it as a beater I didn't put it through any of the tests my nicer watches endure (accuracy and power reserve tests, etc). The other day I realized that even when fully wound that the watch only keeps time for about 8 hours after I take it off. It may be that the watch under normal conditions only reserves this much power, but this does not seem right to me.
If there is something wrong with it, are there any common problems that may have this symptom?
Since I only wear it as a beater, should I even worry about it, as it keeps good time when wound?
What do you guys think? Thanks.
