    Re: Show your Amphibias! Part 2

    Thanks for the clarification mroatman. Unfortunately, watch manufacturers are perpetuating this myth in their own materials.

    This is from an apparent translation of the Vostok Amphibia manual:

    Winding the Watch

    If you wear the watch on your hand every day there's no need to wind it up. The watch uses an automatic self-winding movement which powers the watch by movement of your hand. But if you do not wear your watch more than 24 hours it's necessary to wind it up.

    Unscrew the winding head counter-clockwise from the case. This puts the winding head in position 2. Start winding clockwise by turning the winding head 25 to 30 revolutions. You may need to pull out slightly on the winding head so it doesn't screw back onto the threads.

    Do not overwind or you will break the mechanism.

    When done, screw the winding head into position 1.

    The best way to wind an automatic watch is by wearing it on your hand.

    In my case, trying to set the date via the 'quick' method led to the balance wheel getting stuck somehow. I am new to mechanical watches, so I have no idea how this could happen.

    Unfortunate indeed, especially when describing an automatic movement. If you have a basic understanding of how this movement works, that sentence makes no sense at all.

    I could understand your inclination to trust official manufacturer information over some random forum dude, but I promise you, there is nothing to worry about.

    In this rare case, a gentle twist (like your throwing a frisbee or opening a doorknob) should be enough to get it ticking again.

    710 ministry case; black ss sharks tooth bezel with grey/orange insert, clear case back as well. Leather strap to come, as well as trident second hand and ss movement holder. At some point i may swap the dial out for a grey one to go better with the bezel insert. Not sure. Thoughts?
