Manual winding: Wind a mechanical watch daily, at a regular time to ensure the smooth running of your watch. Turn the crown back and forth until you feel a slight resistance. To avoid damaging the mechanism, do not over-wind.
Automatic winding: Mechanical self-winding watches wind themselves automatically on your wrist. Your watch should be worn 8 to 10 hours a day to fully wind it. If your watch stops or is not worn for long enough periods, the movement will have to be wound manually. When fully wound, your watch will have a power reserve of 38 to 48 hours (depending on the model).
Mechanical movement accuracy: To maintain their accuracy (between -2 /+ 20 seconds per day), mechanical movements need regular maintenance and checks. Mechanical movements are much more sensitive than quartz movements to factors such as gravity, physical shocks, magnetism, and temperature variations. For these reasons, we recommend a complete overhaul every 4-6 years.
