We would all agree that the majority of automatics have a reserve of 40 hours plus or minus, right ?

So how come when buying or receiving a auto watch in the post that has perhaps been in transit for a week or more it starts to run after being unwrapped and perhaps runs for a day or more when in theory it should be totally run down ?

Perhaps its the postal system winding our movements our watches are in constant motion during transit.
Its like when I got my Tsunami from HK. The postal workers/customs agents played futbol with my package when they held it for 2 weeks, thus my watch case was all bashed up. :-[ But my watch was nicely wound up with full power reserve. :D
