With a new watch, wear it every day for at least two weeks.

  • Wind the watch first, and then set the hands with the crown.
  • Wind an automatic watch 30 to 40 times to power the main spring. This helps guarantee optimum torque.
  • If you wear the watch daily, and only take it off at night, there should be no need to wind the watch.Note: 
  • Many watches have a screwdown crown that must be released and retightened after setting time or date to maintain water resistance.
