I just got a Elgin 7 jewel pocket watch off Ebay. Needless to say the watch is in excellent shape. Thing is I'm a total newbie with watches and pocket watches in general. I wound it a little and it fires right up and works fine. My questions are; how many times should I wind it? My Dad used to have a nice pocket watch that was wrecked when he overwound it, I don't want to do that. Also how do you set the time?
Here is the link to ebay for the auction so you can see what type of watch it is: Nice pocket watch Elgin - eBay (item 180549449730 end time Aug-25-10 21:11:23 PDT)
