Thanks shoe! BTW those Santoni Goodyears I picked up from you a few weeks back are doing great and seeing a lot of gentle use!

unrated, I ordered it from Amazon after reading this thread
and checking out what some of the major watch sites said about it. It was running out of the box, presumably because jostling around in the big brown truck wound the spring a bit. This particular automatic (unlike most) does not allow you to hand-wind, so you have to wear it or swirl it a bit to get it going once the mechanism stops. I think the consensus is daily wear usually prevents it from completely running out of power. Setting it is not a big deal, just unscrew the crown and pull it out to the appropriate time or date stop. Right now it is -3 seconds from when I set it 8 hours ago.
I took a better pic this evening:
