manual winding

  1. Public Forum
    Hi watch people, being used to ETA, Seiko, Tudor and Rolex movements I now got my hands on a (cheaper) watch with a Miyota movement (probably the 8215). What makes me curious is the sound when manual winding the watch. I do not mean the rotor movement. But the manual/hand winding sounds sort of...

Up until last year my modest collection has consisted only of Japanese watches, from Casio G Shock to Grand Seiko. Last year I purchased my first Swiss...

    Hi to everyone! If you've read the part "About me", you'll notice, that my knowledge about mechanical and/or automatic watches is somewhat very limited to say at least. But, I do follow a simple rule. I educate myself, ask others, that know more and are more experienced, or the best variant...
  12. Vintage Watch Review (Vintage Japanese Watches)
    There aren't any King Seiko manual wind reviews on here so I’ve done one of my gold plated 45-7000 (with pics ofc). I was looking for a 36,000 bph watch a little while back and found this on ebay for £180. The hi-beat movement is quite loud so I can hear it on my wrist a foot away if the room...

    Hi there people of WUS! I am a newbie at this forum and also a newbie in terms of manual winding-watches. I recently got my NOMOS Tangente 35mm without the power reserve (I bought this watch to see if they are worth investing more money in and they sure look like a solid brand to invest on!). I...

    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...

    To wind or not to wind....I know this has been addressed before, but I haven't totally been satisfied with the responses I've read. I'm wondering if it is ok to occasionally hand wind an ETA 2824-2 movement. I've read in previous forum posts that it is generally not a good idea because it grinds...

    When winding a manual, provided that I have a well sized crown, I always get a good, satisfactory feeling given by the elastic resistance of the spring. This is not the case with my automatics, the reason being the friction with the spring that disengage the racket wheel from the automatic...

    Hi I've recently acquired a beautiful (IMO) Kienzle hand wound wristwatch. It has a relatively simple movement. Unfortunately it stops after a few minutes after I wear it and needs a jolt (shake, tap) to start it again. After a few minutes it dies again. But it works perfectly fine sitting on...
