OK...I just purchased an inexpensive Belocia double automatic watch winder. It works flawlessly, silently and I am very pleased with value received for $52 door to door via Amazon!
My question is, how does one determine the correct Turns Per Day (TPD) for a given watch?
Winder has the following settings:
A- Rotates 33 seconds, rests 12 minutes = 342 TPD
B- Rotates 10 minutes, rests for 90 minutes = 864 TPD
C- Rotates 30 minutes, rests for 3 hours = 1080 TPD
D- Rotates 60 minutes, rests for 3 hours = 2160 TPD
To further complicate things, a switch will permit changing the direction of rotation:
-alternating between the two.
At the moment I only own two automatic wind watches, a Sieko 5 and a Sea-Gull M171S.
Any advice on which of the A,B,C,D settings make sense and which option for direction of rotation? Whatever the answer is, hopefully it can be applied to BOTH these watches simultaneously, because I expect to place them in the winder together.
Seems a silly thing to worry about given the vagaries of wrist movement and exercise we all do during a day, but I just don't want to overdue things and possibly cause watch damage if that is possible.
Thanks for your help,
