    Hello,
    Hope someone can throw a little light on my problem.
    I have a 2012 model of the above with a 2500 calibre movement and a watch
    reference of 2123.04.12.001.002.
    I have it in a rapport winder most of the time, and just lately it seems to keep stopping after 3 or 4 days of being on the winder. I have tried hand winding ( around 80 turns ) but it does not seem to start the watch.
    I have noticed that as I wind the crown does seem to tighten up a little. but after wearing for a few days and then putting back on the winder it stops within a couple of days ? I know the manual says this model can be wound to start it up. just wondered if anyone had any observations .
    thanks,
    Janjon.

    Sounds like it's service time. Especially if it's a 2012 model (no service history stated). Probably not ideal having it sitting in a winder 24/7. Loads of opinions on winders on here but having a watch in it continuously is not good for a watch movement (wear).

    Suggest you post in Modern Watches page, probably why no-one has replied!
