    Theoretically, yes. But Why wouldn't want to fix it, it's cheap and easy. Hell, get the right tools and lube, watch a YouTube tutorial and do it yourself. If left unlubed your autowind will self-destruct and take the movement with it.
    You can run your car with a dry transmission...for a little while.

      I got one coming in the mail. I have no idea if mine will have that problem, but is this an issue will all of these movements. Hkw can you tell if it has this problem?

        It's a fairly common issue with rep movements. Hold your watch upright and wind it, if you can feel the rotor spinning when you wind then your autowind is dry, another clue is a "crunchy" feel when you wind. It's never a bad idea to give your new watch a preliminary service before regular use.

          Will do. Never had that issue with other watches. How is the power reserve with this watch?

                Power reserve on mine is very good. It is as advertised. I would buy more without hesitation, but if you’re buying a PO, invest in a LMPO first!

                For anyone who comes across this thread, I believe this issue was exacerbated by improper winding of the watch. In other words, I was manually winding this thing every single day to keep it running without wearing it. As I’ve come to understand, that is a big no-no.

                  I have this exact problem with my AT GMT. Very glad to see that it's a relatively simple fix. Thanks for the info.

                      Absolutely. I've been in touch with a local watchmaker who also says he's confident it will be a quick and simple job. I'll post an update when I get it sorted.

                        Any news here? I got the same problem with my aqua terra gmt, but my watchmaker didn't want to take the movement apart. He was afraid to destroy it
