Hello All. Merry Christmas.

New owner of an Arrow, well itís my sons birthday present which heís had for a week now.

Heís worn it for a couple of days with no issues but after not wearing it and the reserve power depleting, heís come to wind it , 40 turns, and the watch will not start.

Any ideas?

TIA

Dan.

Dan, welcome, Merry Christmas!

Sorry to hear about the problem, it is an intriguing one - albeit no doubt disappointing, especially at this time of year!

Not a recommended method, but does the watch start if you shake it? The reason I ask is it is likely either a problem with the winding mechanism via the crowd or the automatic side (if you will) via the rotor.

Morning

Iíve tried to Ďkick startí it but unfortunately it doesnít start. I tried winding it again but something is definitely stuck as the balance wheel moves when I wind it.

Looks like a trip to the Boutique tomorrow 🙁
