    Baume and Mercier Chrono

    Got this not too long ago, noticing power reserve maxes out around 5-7 hours. How concern should I be?

    @watchbreath you mean it's too late for servicing? That bad?

    Just being gummy could cause that, but don’t use it until you get it serviced.

    As others said... Service it before using it to prevent damage. Definitely in need of a service.

    Does that have a Landeron 48? Those run like tractors. Nothing about the movement to write home about, but they just. don’t. stop. running.
    Unless they haven’t been serviced in a decade or three.
