headhoncho Wrote:Hi Guys,Quick question:I was messing around with the crown while cleaning the watch and I was surprised to find out the crown moves in position 0. Just to let you know I'm complete noob and received this watch as a gift a week ago.I ended up turning the crown clockwise and counterclockwise. When I turned the crown counterclockwise, I heard a lot of clicks while turning. When I turned the crown clockwise, it turned and slowly, then was harder to turn then came to a hard stop. The power reserve was at 7 days. I'm sweating bullets here hoping that I didn't just break my watch.Please tell me I didn't just break it!!! Although, it's running fine...Scared.-H

tilo Wrote:If all is normal the watch is wound by turning the crown clockwise. The Automatic cannot be overwound because it has a clutch that is making click sound when fully wound. With your wonderful Portuguese this is when the power reserve shows the full 7 days. Turning the crown counterclockwise should normally do nothing an not have noticeable resistance. If there is a hard stop this could be that something is loose or not correct. Only a watchmaker can check what it is.
