hand-winding

  1. Public Forum
    Hello everyone I recently got a Drop Felix with a STP 1-11 movement, and noticed that it feels pretty tight when hand-winding (noticeably more difficult to hand-wind than the Seiko movements I'm used to). Is this normal for this movement or the ETA 2824 its based on? Because this is my first...

    Hi all, I have a SSA231K1 which has a 4R39A movement in it. Yesterday, I wound it in the morning, and had (inadvertently) wound it in the afternoon too. My bad.

Following up on that, would there potentially be similar issues with the 2893 and the other 2890 movements? I may have not searched deeply enough, but I can't seem to find anything going in...

    Fellow watch guys and gals, What is your favorite manual watch? :think: Here in the affordable sub-forum, automatic mechanical watches are very popular. I would like to see, however, if we can't switch gears (pun intended :-d) to discuss our favorite manual-wound watches. Whether they be...

    Dear WUS fellows, I've been wanting to tell you this ever since I've joined you... I just love to (hand)wind my "mechanical" watches! (Where I'm from, we use just "mechanical" to differentiate the hand-winding movement watches from the automatic-winding or quartz movement ones.) I usually wind...

    This question refers specifically to the Sellita SW200 movement. And secondly, how many turns of the crown would it take to reach full wind? Can I damage the movement by doing this? Thanks...
