    power reserve

    after moving to a new house, I had 3 watches that came off the winders.
    almost 2 days went by before putting them back on. the po was still running but the ball and rasmus had stopped. Are the power reserve specs from the manufacturer just a estimate? Nothing against the watches that stopped, I'm sure they were close to there respective reserve range.

    I do not know exactly which movements are in Ball/Rasmus but most of the ETA movements such as 2824 & 2892 have a power reserve of 40-42 hours and I know the Omega PO has a 48 hr PR.

    That's an estimate, 38 to 42 hours for most of the stuff out there.

    The only way to really know Sean is if the watches were fully wound and left to run out.
    Just because they were all on winders doesn't mean they were all fully wound.

    From the ETA specs, the 2892 (base caliber of the 2500C) has a power reserve of 42 hours, the 2824 has a power reserve of 38 hours.
