    Sorry but I don't understand the question. Do you mean a screw down crown?

    Not crown, is there any winding stem which can be wound in the downward direction on an automatic watch. Sorry

    Interesting question. Is there any non-chronograph apart from Vulcain Cricket?

    This is a shot in the dark...but...are you referring to a watch that's wound up by turning the crown ANTI-CLOCKWISE as opposed to CLOCKWISE (which is how most watches are wound up)?

    If you are...I've never known of any watch that does that.

    Yes downward should be counter clockwise.

    I think I know what you are getting at and it wouldn't make a difference most modern autowinders work in both directions in a cycle, X amount one direction X amount in the other to accomodate all type winding rotors from all that I have seen.
    There a few watches that are left hand crown that do wind counter clockwise while you are looking at them, like the Sinn EZM1 and U1000 but not opposite of almost all movements which no matter what wind in a clockwise motion when the crown is at the right side and seems to be pretty standard.
    And in case the question comes up pretty much any right crown watch could be turned into a left hand crown type with quite a bit of work to the dial, date/day wheel and case of course.

    To get this straight: We are not talking about a winder for an automatic watch, but one of these nice and pretty expensive devices, that attach to and wind the crown? A Vulcain Cricket is wound the "other" way (clockwise for the alarm spring, counter clock for the movement).
