    PRS29a Power Reserve

    Does anyone pay much attention to the power reserve? Iíve found mine to generally under perform, on average 36 hours. However I have had the odd occasion when itís gone up to 48 hours. Is this normal?
    Cheers- Oli

    Mine runs for approximately 44 hours after a full wind.

    I think it depends on how (Or if) your wearing it.. I know that if mine stops on the wrist and I give it a little shake, it will sometimes run again for a considerable amount of time.

    I must add that I only started monitoring it after I forgot to wind it one day and it stopped after approx 30 hours!

    I get 44 hours. I wind it every 40 or so, where possible.

    Have checked mine (PRS-29AM) twice when I changed watches. Was ~50 hours on both occasions. Fully wound once a day in the morning.

    Mine shares wrist time with a couple of other watches, however when its in use I've found the Smiths 29a to be a little inconsistent with its run time but around 36 hours seems to be average.

    I've also mentioned on here previously of just one instance where it stopped while not being worn but near to full wind, pulling the crown out and resetting it got it going again and its behaved since.

    Mine is still running at 48hrs, it is also running at +1 a day on the wrist. Very happy with this watch!
