Hi guys, first of all sorry for my bad english
I bought this watch a year ago. A few days ago, I wind the watch as usual and suddenly it got very weird sound , like the rattle.. so I stop and let it out of energy. Today I try again, just 2 turn and that sound happen. I attached video of my watch here... help me figure out.. thanks for your time , everyone

Hi guys, I brought it to watchmaker, holy ... the yellow gear is broken... so they replace and check the condition, it cost 25 ~ 28 bucks... take 5 days

I would say that's not a normal sound. I believe something is wrong.

And you've never heard that sound before even when you've clearly wound it past full? Did anything happen just prior to the first appearance of the sound, like for example, dropping or knocking the watch against something hard? Had you been wearing it all along? Or did you just put it on after a long time not wearing it?

Since it is probably a Selitta movement as CWard often uses, it should be serviceable. I would probably pull out the crown and hack it to stop the movement then bring it to a watchmaker or genuine watch repair shop. Don't bring it to a battery changer stand at the mall.

I keep it on my warm bed, never drop or something hit the watch, it never happen until 3 days ago, maybe tomorrow I will bring it to the watch maker

I had exactly the same issue with my C60 Trident Vintage, there is a known problem with the winding mechanism gears getting gummed up.
Unfortunately you will have to return it to CW under warranty for it to be repaired.

That’s one poorly watch. If CW is out then I reckon it’s time to see a local guy about it. Contact CW and see what they say.

A good local watch maker should be able to correct your problem without too much trouble.

Good luck.

Sounds like a loose winding wheel. Warranty it.

When I sent mine back, it took them 3 months to repair it, that was at least a year before COVID had even been mentioned.
I thought they were back working now?

That's the winding wheel, I have seen this happen with the first version sw series as well as some eta. I would caution that the broken teeth can get lost inside the movement if it doesn't get cleaned properly.

Thank you, i also listen the watchmaker explain about broken teeth, so I let him keep the watch and check all for the best... appreciate your comment, my friend

Sound like a relatively cheap & easy fix, it also saves the hassle of sending it back to CW.
I hope you get it back working soon.

I had a suspicion that's what it was. That wheel is a known weak spot. Do you frequently wind the watch using the crown?
