Ah, but what’s the effect and relationship of temperature, humidity, the seasons, and meteoric rain showers have on the tpd, rest period, and power reserve, huh? Which brand should I buy? So how do I know how long it will run for if it has fewer tpd? Note that passwords are case-sensitive. If the watch was fully wound when you put it on the winder and it stopped after the normal power reserve then it is probably a watch than only winds in one direction and the winder is set for the opposite direction. Winders with long several hour rest periods may cause the watch to stop if the reserve is low the rest period allows the watch to completely run down. Watches that can be wound in both directions will also wind without any problems on a clockwise or counter clockwise program, but if your watch only winds in one direction then you need to set the winder correctly or the watch will not stay wound.

Otherwise really nice guide Prof!
Very expensive and hard to calibrate, especially in the northern hemisphere. Wed Oct 27, 4: They rotate the watch causing the rotor to rotate and wind the mainspring.

Watch winders are one of the most asked about things on this forum so I thought that I would try and put together a post that answers all of the common questions. They drag you down to their level and beat you with experience” Greg King? The time now is Quote message in reply? Appreciate the effort and new resourse. Since doing this I’ve found my watches seem to run more accurately over all, purely coincidental I think as I can’t see what bearing reducing the ‘over winding’ would have.
Lol, just let them run out of power and reset next time you wear them. July 27th, One of the major winder manufacturers — Orbita, provides a database of watches and movements with information about how many tpd and which direction.

The wardrobe is a good solution. Suppose that the winder is providing tpd, that means that the shortfall is tpd.
If you wear your watch every day then ssettings it on the night stand at night and it will be fine the next day. Winders with long several hour rest periods may cause the watch to stop if the reserve is low the rest period allows the watch to completely run down.
