: Automatic watch stops working within hours?

I just purchased a Bentley big date. For the first few days, everything was great. If I haven't worn the watch for a day it would obviously stop. However, a few days later, after wearing my Bentley all day, I would take it off at the end of my 12 hr work day. All of a sudden, my Bentley would stop working after just an hour or two. I would then wind it 30 or more times. Why does my watch stop working just an hour or so after taking off?

Could be the winder. Give the watch a full wind. (by hand....they way they used to do it...:D) and see how it does. 40 turns of the crown should do it. ;)
