I bought a Carrera Calibre 5 in November from Amazon. The watch works fine, but the hands don't stay illuminated for more than 10 minutes. The watch could not have been manufactured more than a year ago because this watch debuted less than a year ago. Has anyone else had this issue? Is there something I'm doing wrong? I wear the watch daily, surely that should be sufficient to charge the luminous hands? Any recommendations or advice would be appreciated.

There isn't much lume on that model, use a halogen lamp hold the watch about 5 inches for 15 seconds - the watch will glow bright for about 10 minutes and dull down, you should faintly see the hand in the dark for most of the night.

but due to the small amount of lume I wouldn't be expecting anything amazing.

Normal for for any watch like this
