Been collecting watches something fierce now for a few months and already got 3 Citizens, a nice Nixon Rotolog, and a couple Invictas (yes I know they have a cult following for loving and hating them, but I personally like them) Ironically this question has to do with a recent Invicta Watch I had purchased. I recently bought a 2299 Ocean Ghost off eBay, and got it for a pretty decent price 66 bucks NIB, except when I got it I could easily tell it had been used before. After a little bit of back and forth with the seller I got a partial refund and kept the watch because even with the small cosmetic imperfections I still liked the watch and wanted it in my collection. This is my first automatic watch, and have noticed it really looses time and stops keeping time very quickly if not worn or shaken. Is this normal for most automatic watches? By quickly I mean like a couple hours. Again I've never owned an automatic watch, just Quartz. I don't know if there is a trick to make it keep time longer if not worn for a short period or longer, if they all usually loose time like this, or if I got a wack watch. (Please spare me the hateful Invicta talk) Some input would be great!
