proemstra Wrote:Hi Dick,I have a few other automatic watches. Yes I handwind them about 15 turn when it has stopped, after not wearing it for a few days and than put it on.The IWC ran fine and suddenly stopped during the day, not coming alive ever since... Tried also winding it a few turns, but nothing happened.I have just took it into the a IWC dealer, Rene Kahle, in Holland. He will send it to IWC. I hope for the best....

Roberto Wrote:David, you can usually feel it with your fingertips when the watch is fully handwound, it just feels a bit different, when the sliding mechanism of the mainspring gets alive. It is not too easy too feel this though, in case of the Valjoux 7750 it is usually possible. My experience is that it happens after cca. 25-30 turns of the winding crown after the watch has stopped.Hope this helps.Robert
