    MO power reserve

    What is the power reserve of the Marine Original (fully winded)?

    The instruction booklet that comes with the watch doesn't say anything about the 6498 movement.

    This is not authoritative; I just got one and haven't been watching it carefully, but I was looking for the same info online a few days ago. From what I read, the movement's power reserve is somewhere around 40 hours, maybe a little more. Someone more knowledgeable please confirm.

    Yes I am, 40 to 42 is an average figure. The ETA 6498-1 used to feature up to 56 hours. That is the movement mentioned in the Ranfft database (I am aware of btw ). Th newer once are said to have a pr of about 46h.

    I would agree, just because of personal experiences: My MO doesn't reach two days of operation if I forget to wind it once a day. Something between 40h (from 7am the first morning until 11pm next day) to 45h sounds realistic. I can't confirm the 50h stated in a post above...

    According to the ETA documents available from their web site the -1 is listed as 46hrs and the -2 as 53hrs.

    Hi,

    After roughly how many rotations of the crown is the movement fully wound?

    Thank you in advance,
    D

    I test mine these days, fully wind first day at 8AM, and wear it, finally stop the third day at 10:25AM. Around 8AM the third day, still kept good accuracy, in the last hour around 10am, it lost almost 5 minustes.

    Properly not a popular case and good scientific method to test, but for me it is enough. In 2004, when I acquired my nomos tangente, Nomos catalogue claims 45-48hours power reserve for 1TS caliber, whereas mine only 41hours.
