MECHANICAL WATCHES WITH MANUAL WINDING

If your mechanical watches have manual winding – it may need to be wound daily. This process will give your watch enough sufficient power to function properly. If you are manually winding your watch you must do this by turning the crown clockwise as far as it will go. This must be done gently, therefore it is advised not to force it when it reaches this point. By putting too much pressure on your time piece you may be damaging the movement.
