    Winding of the Militare models

    OK, treated myself this afternoon with the kind help of ClementW. In short a Militare Chrono is winging it's way to me! Yes Phunky, the white dialled piece of gorgeousness that was on eBay.

    Anyway, my question for those experienced is: is it essential to wind the Militare models with the crown locking mechanism open? It seems cumbersome to say the least. Can they be safely wound with the mechanism closed and only open it to adjust the time?

    And because I know we all love pics, here's a couple from Clement, hope he doesn't mind :

    Congratulations my friend the white dial looks really nice, in my experience this is the proper way to wind any watch on the famiglia Militare... with the crown locked because this way the crown is fixed and can do turns easy:

    Thumbs Up Re: Winding of the Militare models

    Sorry for the slight thread hijack... I Get silly when I see white dialed Militare's...

    Wow! A white dialed Militare. Similar tastes among many on this forum! The best thing about the old line-up is that many are still in production, like the Militare Chrono (not sure about the white dial). But, that is the beauty and is similar to the current run. Not to mention, it's even more exclusive. Which IS why most of us buy Anonimo...

    But, even if you have a model like this (I also have a chrono Militare) you still have a better, more exclusive, complicated watch than 99% of the world.

    All the more reason to save for a 2010 AND take the opportunity to get a good deal on a great watch like this!

    You have an excellent watch my friend, and Im happy to see so many people read through the BS and buy what they like.

    I can afford a Rolex, but damn do I enjoy these watches!

    Brilliant! Thankyou Nelson, and with video too, answered my question perfectly. It just seems like the sensible solution to wind it with the guard closed.
