    My first scuba dude! I wasn't sure about this case, but I am loving the wider band. I can't believe it took me 5 Vostoks and 3 Frankens to finally pull the trigger on a scuba dude. I see a blue dude in a 420 case in my future as well.

    Can you elaborate? Somewhere online I saw a discussion about how you could possibly over-wind by using the hand wind, which is what I was referring to. Would be good to know if that's just a myth.

    The watch is still going, and running a consistent amount fast per day, which gives me hope I can regulate it in a couple weeks when I have time to fiddle with it.

    Yes, purely a myth. To break a mainspring via winding, you'd likely need pliers, and even then something in the keyless works is likely to snap before the mainspring does.

    The state of being "overwound" certainly exists (at least in colloquial speech), but it has nothing to do with winding too much. Schnurrp summarizes it well here:

    Quote Originally Posted by schnurrp View Post
    In many cases, when a watch is described as being "overwound", it means that the watch has been wound up but does not have the function necessary to run itself down [presumably due to a filthy movement or stuck gear], so the spring will stay tight until the watch is fixed and it starts ticking. "Overwound" is a condition, not an action.
    In other words, when watches are described as being "overwound", they are usually just dirty and unserviced. So it's better to call them "dirty and unserviced".

    Calling these watches "overwound" perpetuates a fear that you might somehow wind the watch 'too hard' or 'too much' or otherwise break the movement purely via the action of winding it up. Ask anyone who has wound a few dozen (or thousand) hand-crank movements, and they'll tell you this fear is largely ridiculous and unfounded. A myth.

    The result of this myth is that lots of folks who are new to mechanical watches often don't wind their watches fully for fear of breaking the mainspring. They baby their pieces, winding only a few turns, resulting in poor runtime -- a lot of unnecessary anxiety over nothing, in my opinion.
