    My First But Certainly Not Last Kobold

    Just received a stunning preowned SOA. I like this watch even more than I thought I would. Will try to some new arrival pictures later today. I do have a NEWBIE question - since the crown is on the left side what is the correct way to wind this watch?

    Thanks (in advance) for answering a NEWBIE question that has probably answered at least a 1000 times before!:thanks

    I wind mine off the wrist and then put it on.
    It's fairly clear when you first wind it what direction to go in.
    Congrats on a great watch, you'll love your SOA.

    Congrats! The SOA is a beauty of a watch. I also really appreciate what it stands for. My brother is teaching abroad (Chile) and is considering the SOA merely for the lettering on the dial. Enjoy. We'll be looking out for the pics.

    clockwise as above...you should be able to hear it click as you wind and it will reach a fully wound point where the crown stops spinning...dont' force it.

    Great pick up, can't wait to see pics.
