Hello again to all. I posted in Jan 2019 on my Superocean Heritage 2 purchase. I have enjoyed the watch until recently. Recently, In the morning the watch has stopped as though the reserve has run down. Supposed to have a 70 hr reserve. I'm retired (watch was gift to self) and average activity but the auto wind feature is at rest when watching TV, etc. . Typically I would wind it 20 times in the morning and with normal activity it worked fine till now. Really disheartening to have a 5K watch fail. I'm wondering if my pattern has done anything to the mainspring. Wound it 40 times yesterday and wore it. Kept perfect time and crashed again this AM. If I take it to the Brietling store I know I won't see it for 6-12 months. Really bummed. Would appreciate any input and thanks ...

Reserve depends on the caliber.
If your watch has in house caliber than it is around 70 hours.
If it's ETA, than around 42.
Maybe there is a problem with your physical inactivity.
Take your watch and give it 50 turns to be sure.
Put it on the table and see how long it will run without moving it.
That's for start.

Thanks, the movement for the 42mm Heritage 2 was sourced from Tudor
