Automatic Watch Stopped Working After Getting Wet

I have a beautiful Swiss Marin automatic watch. By accident it fell into a river and got wet inside, it took three days to dry out, but now it is not working. I opened it from the back and also when I shake it it starts running and in 10 seconds it stops again. I love this watch and need it in running form:'(

It is my favorite watch. What should I do?

If the back of the watch comes off, use a blow dryer on low heat to dry the inside of the watch -- works wonders. If possible, do this outside in super cold weather so that you end up with the lowest possible dew point inside your watch when you are done. Allow the watch to cool before you put it back together.
