    How long should my wab 2010 work when not being worn

    Two weeks ago i purchased my first Tag a wab 2010,
    and i love it.
    Only problem is, it stops within 24 hours when im not wearing it.
    Due to my job i can't wear it every day,but was told when fully wound it should last up to 36 hours.
    I just wondered if my watch has a fault:will it take time to loosen up a bit:or should i just buy a auto winder.
    Any advice will be appreciated.
    Please don't tell me i should have bought a quartz.

    I would just get a winder. You have to consider that the fact you wear it does not mean it is fully charged at the end of the day; it depends much on the level of activity. For example if you do a lot of desk hours in front of a computer, it will not get wound much.

    Watch winders do exist. Those could help. How do you know if it's fully wound when you stop using it?

    Give the crown about 10 turns when you take it off for the night (or anytime you walk by it). It will bring it to a full charge if you wear it all day (about 20ish turns is a full charge from dead). If it still dies, then get a winder. Winders are expensive though, and I dont find them necessary. I would rather reset the watch every time I wanted to wear it.

    And I would NEVER tell you to get a quartz

    Mine runs about 11 secs fast on a day I'm out working and about 7 secs fast on a day I'm at home working at the computer.
    Isn't it a fantastic watch! Is the bezel on yours really stiff?

    don't think there's anything wrong w the watch... just by wearing the watch will not give it a full charge, (unless u run around n swing ur hands wildly) u need to manual wind it around 30-40 turns to ensure full charge... either way ur best bet is to get a watch winder

    yup ultra stiff bezel.. but over time, seems to loosen slightly but still difficult to turn.. a design flaw for this model

    Hi Groynaid ,ya the bezel is a bit fiddly they seem to have address the issue in the new calibra 5 version,but it still a great watch.
    I am getting used to keeping it wound now, wearing it more helps
