Powering your ST2130 Automatic Movement
|Automatic watches are powered by the motion of the rotor swinging around inside the case
Power by motion of swinging rotor
Simply give it a few shakes, back and forth, and you should see the watch’s hands start to move. If you’re someone who isn’t very active, like those who work at a desk job, it’s possible your watch will stop again sometime during the day, as it’s mainly powered by motion. You can keep it running by giving it a shake every so often, or simply by moving around more.
|Manually winding the crown to power your watch
Wind the main spring
While in the Home Position Turn the crown in a clockwise direction 30-40 times to wind the mainspring and power the watch fully. This will usually give it a power reserve charge of about 40 hours, give or take.
