Any one have a Tag Carrera?

I have a Tag Carrera and it's automatic. I was curious if anyone lets the watch sit for two or more days it will stop ticking. I figure it should have more of a reserve than two days? Also the watch is just over a year old.

The one that I have (which is about five years old) has a stated 38-42 hour power reserve. I know that there are other Carerra models and I'm sure that the power reserve is not much different. That sounds about right, as mine stops before two days elapses.

I have this one and that sounds about right for how long it will operate without winding it.

most automatics don't last more than ~48 hours without being worn

I picked up mine in the summer of '06. Something internal broke about a year later but it was replaced for free. As a habit, I shake it like a shake weight (no homo) for about 10 seconds then take it off. It'll still be working of I put it on the day after next but I doubt it would after any longer that.
