How good is the time keeping?
All mechanical or automatic watches lose time in comparison to modern-day Quartz watches. A vintage watch that does not lose more than 3 to 5 minutes within a 24-hour period is considered to be keeping good time.
Why does the watch stop after a while?
Mechanical or automatic watches require wrist movement to charge up the movement which in turn keeps the watch ticking. If the watch is worn during inactive periods, a 20 to 30 seconds shake every few hours will ensure a full wind.

The recommended time for servicing a mechanical watch will vary according to its use. Generally, most mechanical watches require a service within 3 to 5 years. We offer servicing for vintage Seiko watches only. This takes a turnaround time of 8 weeks minimally.
