    Is there any problem if I do not wound mind Hand-Winding usually?

    I have a Hand-Winding Vintage which I have just purchase here https://forums.watchuseek.com/f2/im-i...e-3042922.html

    I one hand-winding before but I flip it because I'm some how too lazy to wind it everyday

    I just wonder if I leave my hand-winding in a case and do not wind it for may be 2-3 weeks, will there is any problems with my watch movement?

    All my automatic I have the watch-winder for them but Obiviously I cannot use it for my hand-winding that why it make me concerned

    No problem. Just wind before wearing.

    It is the same with an automatic with no-date?

    It'll come to no harm if you just let it die then wind it before you next wear it.

    Yes. Automatic or hand wound, date or no date makes no difference. You can just let them run down and wind them again when you want to wear them.

    As others have mentioned no harm will come of you let in die and wind when you're ready to wear. The main advantage of a winder for automatics is that you won't need to set the complications (day, date, month, etc). I don't use my winders any more and all my automatics with dates gets adjusted in the morning when ready to be worn.

    Sure, it you want it to show the correct date, you'll have to set it then. That's up to you.

    Concerning your Arsa vintage: do you know if it has been serviced recently? If not, using it will wear out the movement in the long run. All mechanical watches need oil and grease, but these dry up over time. Many vintage watches will work even without lubrication, but it wears out the pinions. So if you want to preserve it, you should get it checked by a watchmaker before you use it.
