I've owned my Oris BC3 for over two years now. I admit it's one of the cheaper models within the brand, so I believe I have an appropriate level of expectation from the watch. The watch is durable and clean, and I think the see through case back adds a nice touch to the watch.
Anyways, the reason for this post is that I have been finding that my Oris on some days (quite frequent than I would like/expect), can't last through the night (like this morning, the watch died at 5am). I wear the watch daily (office desk job), and will take it off around 6pm, depending on when I leave work (either at home or gym).
Is this normal? The power reserve of 38 hours seems to only work when I wind the watch. I don't remember ever hitting a lengthy power reserve, even when I wear the watch and am actively moving for most of the day (walking/traveling/etc).
I always equated the low power reserve on this watch to its lower price and that I may just not be using an automatic watch correctly. I may just need a lesson on charging the watch through more active movement.
Your advice is much appreciated!
