vostok 2416b never fully wound
I got a komanderskie with a 2416b, and I wind the crown over and over and over, more than 30 times, and it never becomes fully wound... Does anyone have any ideas? Is this normal?
Re: vostok 2416b never fully wound
It's normal. In automatic watches there is a special mainspring end, that slips a bit on the barell wall when it's wound fully. Otherwise the auto-winder would try to wind a fully wound spring against it's resistance. It would be like pressing the corwn in winding direction against the resistance in a handwind watch - it can damage the movement and causes knocking of the balance wheel, so to prevent it - this system was invented :)
Visit my American watch collection album if you have some time ;)
Have a great day!!!
