This review is from: Invicta Men's Automatic Pro Diver Watch 8926 (Watch)
I've had this watch for 20 months now and I've been impressed by what appeared to be a quality product until recently. The watch has kept good time, and I'm quite active so there's been no problems with it's automatic wind mechanism - until recently. It now stops regularly, at least once a day, and has usually stopped around an hour before I wake up. Sometimes at odd times during the day when I'm out and about and need to know the time. So it's pretty useless now. I had expected it to last much longer. I know it only cost me £75, and I see it being sold at £150 now, but I've had far cheaper watches with mechanisms that have outlasted this one by years.

Mechanical watches should be serviced annually, if for no other reason that to check/replace waterproofing seals which also protect against dirt an dust . You don't mention servicing in the 20 months you have owned the watch, so why not take it into your local jewellers and have it done ?

A professional service costs about £100. Whoever told you a service was needed annually was having a laugh. If this were true quartz watches would be a lot more popular than they actually are.
