    SKX007 power reserve?

    I recently purchased an SKX007 and it always stops during the middle of the night and I have to reset it in the morning. Is this typical?

    Wear it for two days straight and then try again. It likely doesn’t have a full wind by the time you put it down.

    Maybe you could use a winder.

    When was it serviced last? If it is dry of oil maybe it isn't winding effeciently...

    I measured 50 hours, but as you can't hand wind it you have to wear it often and be active.

    How old is your watch? You can date it here - WatchSleuth - Seiko Date Finder
    If it's newish then 40+ hours.
    If it's old (15 years or more) then maybe a bit less, but certainly more than overnight.
    As has already been said, give it a proper charge for 48 hours then see how it goes.
    If it's still not holding much of a charge, it's time for a service.

    After a full day of wear, you should've built up at least 15 hours, likely more. Mine is always ticking away the next morning. If you're wearing it every day and it's stopping every night, that's definitely not normal.

    How long do you wear it each day? Morning 'til bedtime, or 9-to-5?

    What do you do during the day? Do you spend most of your time sitting at a desk?

    We had another power reserve question a while back. Turned out that the owner only wore his automatic watch while sitting around at home and reading books. He even switched to a digital Timex to walk the dog because he didn't want to damage the "nice" watch. He never moved the watch enough to get it wound up.

    My SKX009 ran for about 40 hours when I tested its reserve on a full wind (worn for a week straight, even to bed). It never ran down overnight when I wore it regularly (morning until bedtime, usually).

    If you're wearing it all day and aren't like completely stationary, I'd say it should last overnight. I'm mostly behind a desk all day, and none of my correctly operating autos had an issue lasting overnight.

    I've had two 7s26 movements have power reserve issues. Sometimes can be hard to diagnose since you can't handwind, seems like some people just have the rotor comes loose and needs to be tightened.
