    ETA 2824 power reserve and manually wind question

    So i have an ETA 2824 and i noticed 2 things that i would like to know if they are a problem or a sign it needs servicing.

    1.) I'm getting approx. 36.5 hrs of power reserve instead of 38 which is on the spec list

    2.) When it's fully dead i can't get the second hand to start moving until it is fully wound again (approx. 30 turns of the crown).

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    When was the watch serviced? Both symptoms can be due to the dried up (or lack of) lubrication/dirt. The watch should start after about 5 winding turns. Thanks

    Thanks, i've had it for about 4 years. When it's dead a few shakes will get it moving. It is also keeping good time.

    Looks like it needs a service.
