    Calling Tudor BB58 owners for advice..

    So, 2 weeks of ownership, watch is great, within 2 seconds per day but; winding it this evening as itís been off my wrist for a few days and it feels grindy and clicks when winding, wasnít like this at the beginning. Any advice, similar experience folks?

    Wondering if it might be due to this?:
    ďThe mainspring barrel has a ratchet device to prevent it unwinding every time you release the pressure on the crown. That comprises a larger toothed ratchet wheel (attached to the barrel) and a click (a detente that locks the ratchet wheel) and a click spring (that acts on the click to keep it active). The click is what makes the noise as it allows the teeth of the ratchet wheel to pass in one direction and locks it when it tries to unwind. Again this will vary from watch model to watch model and isnít an indication of a fault or poor QC, itís just how it is on this particular model.
