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.

Sinclair Wrote:HI,sadly, I don't own one of these and I don't really know, but it would not be a screw-in crown? This would definitely lead to a hard stop when it is turned clockwise. Everything would be as it should then.
Best RegardsMarkIt's not about the watch you are wearing, It's all about the one you are NOT...
