    Bremont MBII Stops

    I picked up an MBII from the American Diamond Exchange this past summer in Skagway, Alaska while on a cruise. I love the watch and it is by far the most expensive timepiece that I own. However, it just stops from time to time despite wearing it everyday. I take it off at night while I sleep. I will be wearing it and notice that the time is way off and that it has stopped. I end up pulling the crown, resetting the time and then it starts working again with a shake. This watch is supposed to have a 38 hour power reserve. The frequency of this is every couple of weeks. Is this indicative of a real problem?

    A shake will not suffice. In order to obtain the full 38 hour power reserve, the watch must be fully wound first. Wind the crown about 30 times or so. If you wear the watch enough and there is constant movement of your wrist, the self-winding feature should take over, keeping the watch wound.

    Ditto to the above. Watches that have been wound down need to be re-wound. Thirty to 40 winds, and you can't overwind an automatic.
