I'll try to make this short and to the point.

I've owned my Super Avenger about 6.5 years and it's been great. Lately I've noticed it is not holding its "wind" as long as it once did. At first I thought it was the winder but now think it may be the SA itself. Even on the winder, which appears to be working to spec, it now loses its wind within 2 days. Over the weekend, after taking the watch off for bed, it lost it's wind over night.

1. Is it time for me to send the SA in for service/maintenance?
2. How do I know if the watch is having problems (when full wound, how long should a SA work when not being worn)?
3. How many turns on the winding nob is a full wind?

Anyone else had this problem and what did you do?

Thanks in advance, Steve

The recommended service interval on most mechanical watches is a full overhaul every 4 or 5 years if you wear the watch fairly frequently. So I'd say it's time your Super Avenger went in for an overhaul.
