Got a small problem. I bought my dad an automatic watch (Seiko SARB) recently for Father's Day. He loves it and wears it all the time as he's practically a one-watch guy.
My problem is that he's not active enough to keep it automatically wound while wearing it. He spends a lot of time in his chair reading and web surfing. When he goes on walks, he puts on a Timex beater. He does wear the watch when he sleeps but that doesn't help. He was recently commenting that the watch will stop every couple of days and he has to hand wind it.
Anybody have any suggestions? Should he treat it as a manual-wind and just give it 50 turns every morning? Or, should I get him an inexpensive watch winder and have him put it on the winder every night? Or are there any other suggestions?
I'm a little stumped as to what to do.
Thanks in advance.
