Default Citizen 8200 winding and stopping

Hello my first 8200 buy off of eBay. Is it supposed to stop overnight after being worn all day? The watch keeps time just fine after a shake in the morning. I've got the citizen bug pretty bad I think. 3 modern watches, this one and another on the way. I'm on the lookout for a brith year 1967 model.

thanks in advance ~JG

Give it a full and proper wind, side to side in your hand for a good 4 or 5 minutes. Sit it overnight and see if it's still running after 24 hours. It just might not be running at full power. If you just give it a few shakes in the morning and you aren't particularly active then the watch will just keep itself topped up rather than fully wound.

thanks. I wound it about 10 times and wore it all day. It kept time and changed the day and date last night. Thanks for the help. ~JG

Mine NY0040 was 40+ hrs with that automatic. Think the best is to get it serviced, at least you ll know if it needs repairing

Also, it is quite simple and cheap mechanism, parts are easy to get and should not be expensive

Good advice, except that you don’t need to do the “Seiko Shake” with this caliber. The 82xx can be hand-wound. Give the crown at least 40 revolutions (guessing- better safe than sorry) to impart a full wind. First thing in the manual talks about hand-winding initially:

Edit: I’m a little suspicious of that dial (which is missing a dial code). Might indicate monkey business elsewhere in the watch, including condition of movement.

the crown can be a little stiff, so pay attention when screwing it back, it handwinds in first neutral position; from same position it requires a little pressure but be careful not to press to hard

As Noah has suggested, this is a re-dial. There are many re-dialed 8200's on eBay.

The 8200 wasn't made in 1967 btw, so beware of any seller that suggests that year for an 8200.

If you particularly want a Citizen watch from 1967, feel free to visit my blog and ask for advice if you wish.
