    I have a Raymond Weil Freelancer which is meant to be self-winding. It tends to lose a minute or two each week. This is bloody annoying, but I think itís because I canít wear it at work and so it has long periods of not being moved about.

    Is it called a freelancer because it costs twice as much and only works half the time

    Try leaving it in different positions, face-up, face-down, or on either side, and see if that makes a difference, you may be able to get the loss down a little. And you could give it a couple of winds in the morning to boost the power reserve.

    Best option would be just to by a watch winder, you can get a cheap one and should see it keep better time. If it's still loosing more than a few seconds a day after that, then it may be due a service (or at least a quick regulating).
