I woke up this morning, looked at my 10 month old watch and it showed 8:55. Surprised I checked another clock that said 6:30. Guess what? Yup, the Sinn was wrong; even though it generally runs at 2 seconds slow per day.
My first thought was that I must have left the crown out, but that was tight. After resetting it I watched it for a minute and the hands stopped moving. I peered into the rear of the watch and everything seemed OK, the rotor moved when the watch was rotated. When I shook the watch gently the second had started to move, but then it stopped. I put a good few manual winds into it, and that kept it going for about 25 minutes. And then it stopped.
I wear the watch constantly and to my knowledge haven't bashed it or exposed it to mega magnetic fields. I look after my stuff and the watch (externally) is in good order.
So Monday I will need to call Chronomaster (or may be Page and Cooper) to get it sent back to Germany for warranty repair. No doubt this will take several weeks which I'm gutted about.
Does anybody have any idea what could have gone wrong with it? Anybody any experience about sending a watch back via either of the two UK distributors?
