I have bought my first mechanical manual wind watch (a Stowa back to Bauhouse). I have read several times on this site that a watch should be wound at the same time every day. However, with my new watch it is impossible. When I finish winding the watch I feel resistance and stop. 24 hours later I still feel the same resistance and can not wind the watch at all. It is only possible to wind it a few hours before the spring completely unwinds.
Is something wrong with my watch? What could cause this and why am I not able to wind my watch sooner. From what I understand most watches can be topped off at any time. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
