New spacemaster stopped working

I am a new user to the forum.

I was given a new spacemaster for early xmas present after many years of wishing.

Have had it for 5 days and it has stopped working. Have not bumped or knocked it, have swam with it, but does not appear to have any leakage, condensation, etc. I have tried winding it manually but do not want to overwind it. Does anyone know how many turns of the crown is needed before the watch startsto tick over? Will take it back to the AD in a few days, but now a bit sad/dissapointed :-(

After many years of research i had expected a quality, reasonably tough time piece from ball.

Has anyone had any similiar experience?

Welcome. All of my automatic watches generally start up with a couple of winds or even less with the movement involved while winding. Maybe give it about 10 full turns and a slight shake as if on the wrist and see if you get any movement.

If that doesn't work def an issue and back to the AD it should go.
