    My Sinn 104 losing hours of time over night.

    Hoping someone could help that's has experienced this. My Sinn 104 which I've had since June of 2018 has been running about-0/+0.5 up to +1 2 for months. I literally check the watches accuracy every day since I put it on my wrist. Needless to say I've been thrilled with the Sinn.

    With this being said, I decided to purchase the Seiko "Baby Turtle". Wanted a less expensive watch to wear daily and figured why not a Seiko.

    For the first time in months I'm not wearing my Sinn and over night its lost an hour of time.

    Someone please help. This to me is just crazy.

    Are you sure it just didn't stop because it wasn't fully wound? A full wind power reserve should easily last overnight.

    I noticed it slowing down yesterday during the day. I wound the watch fully before I set it down on the night stand face up before bed. This morning I reset the time/day/date again and wound it 20 more times. It's really strange to me. It went from being amazingly accurate to crap in one day. I literally have months that I've logged tracking the accuracy.

    I thought the same thing. Just checked it when I got in from work. It's back to keeping time. Perhaps you were right about needing to he wound as the power reserve was getting low. Thanks for the help. I'll see where it is tomorrow.

    Its keeping time again. Thinking I have just never let the watch wind down for this long. I'm going to use your suggestion and fully wind it again and see how long it takes to stop. Thanks for your help. Now back to enjoying this new Seiko mini turtle.

    Cheers!

    Thats good news--
    You can wind that 30-40 times for a full wind...Esp if its been sitting and its used most of its reserve. SW 220-1 has 38 hrs power reserve.

    Magnetism usually makes a watch run fast.... running slow usually means time for service....
    I'd keep an eye on it. If this keeps happening you probably will want to send it in.
