Having put it on around 06:30 hrs yesterday morning and worn it through to 20:00hrs this evening, bar overnight in bed, I reckon it should be fully charged.
. . . . . .
Now, into Phase 2, to run it down and establish the Power Reserve.
By my reckoning 56 hours will take me through to 04:00 hrs on Sunday morning. We'll see and here goes.
The watch initially stopped at 23:30hrs Saturday night i.e. after 51.5 hrs.
A useful feature of doing this test is the watch being a GMT, as one can tell for how the GMT hand has been set whether it is showing am or pm.
Having picked it up, looked at it, then put it down again it started running again; this is without any discernable attempt to wind it. I have an unproven theory that with any watch it will stop when it meets a point of resistance, somewhere in the movement. By picking it up, looking at it and then putting it down, it will 'bump' the movement into action until the next time that it meets a point of resistance, and then stop.
Thus happened with the watch showing 02:00hrs Sunday morning i. e. after 54 hrs.
I've picked it up, looked at it and put it down again and its has, again, started running (and still is). We might yet get to 56 hrs!
Final update to follow tomorrow.
