Have any of you had your watch for >5 years without overhauling the movement? Have you worn your watch almost continuously?I'm trying to determine how long the movement lasts while wearing a watch as a daily beater.I wonder because the warranty is 2 years and, provided nothing else goes wrong, most movements work fine beyond the first two years.

But I was just curious for those circumstances where the normal routine isn't followed (not my intent!)I have heard of those who haven't service any of their watches for about 10 years.My father has two Rolexes (not sure what kind since I'm not a Rolex fan) that haven't been serviced in about 20 years! Granted he wears them sparingly but they still running smooth.

I hear of stories where owners were without their watches for several months due to the many processes involved. Is this the norm?
