    Winding a ETA 2836-2

    hello all, i just received a mkii seafighter and i was wondering how the ETA 2836-2 movement is wound on a winder, clockwise or counter clockwise? i could set the winder to alternate rotations but i would rather set it to wind in the correct direction.

    thanks for any input

    Anybody can feel free to correct me if I'm wrong here, but these are bi-directional wound, the rotor no matter which way it swings, will wind the watch. So I believe you can set it either way and consider it done. Again, I could be wrong here, but the only watches I know of that are uni-direction winding are some of the lower-ended Seikos, Citizens & Orients. Perhaps the Claro Semag CL888...

    I got out of watches for a long time, but I'm coming back!

    And the ETA 2000-1, ETA 2004-1, ETA 2094, the ETA A07 series, ETA 7751, ETA 7753, Lemania 5100, a few of the AS movements...

    That's right, I never buy chronographs thus I don't ever consider them in my thought processes, so I completely overlooked several watches, a few from the Valjoux 775X series. In either case, the one in question can be wound both ways.
