    Weird clicking noise with 2804-2 Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical

    The other day I got my Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical and started winding it up. Every few turns I would hear a louder click/snap compared to the regular winding noise. I have experience with other manual wound movement so I know I'm not over winding it. I was wondering if anyone has noticed this with a 2804-2 movement. I'm still not sure if this if normal for or if something is up. The watch is keeping a consistent +10 seconds/day and isn't making another weird sounds while it's running.

    Any insight would be great.

    I owned a Khaki Field Mechanical for a year or so, and it didn't have any odd clicking sounds...

    Is your watch new or used? If new, I would sent it back.... If used, maybe have a watchmaker look at it.

    Not sure what clicking sounds you're getting but mine winds quietly and smoothly - as well as running around +3 seconds per day.
    Therefore, like others have already suggested, I'd have a watchmaker - or Hamilton if still under warranty - look at it rather than risk damaging the mechanism.

    can you wind until mainspring is wound or crown just spins around?

    The crown does stop when the mainspring is fully wound. It's just the occasional click/snap every few rotations.
