I usually wind my Speedy 3570.50 each morning - every 24 hours. However, upon allowing the watch to wind-down in order to see how long it'll operate...I'm getting only 37.5 hours before it putters out. I understand that it's 48-hours that I should be getting out of a full wind. What could be the issue? When I do wind daily, I get 16 winds before the winder won't go any further. The watch is a little over 2 years old. Could I have a bad main spring? On a practical level, I don't mind so much, as I do wind each morning. But, I still wish the watch would hold for the full 48-hours advertised. Any advice would be appreciated...:-s

Thanks, Eric. Haven't had it looked at as yet. It's operating fine on a day-to-day basis, so the situation is not dire. I am a bit concerned about the
possibility of facing a large expense to have it inspected and repaired, though. :roll:

If you're happy enough with it as is currently, I'd just have it looked at during it's first service.

You cannot overwind your Speedy. When it's fully wound, the crown will just stop turning.
