    Re: Automatic and manual winding - some basics explained

    Wonderful write up, I learned a lot from it :)

    Question:
    In their new 9300 movement they say that it has a "vertical clutch", could you please explain what the difference is (if any) from the clutch you described above? Thank you

    Thank you so much for that in-depth post.

    I'm currently envisioning what's going on in my newly acquired Speedy Pro as I wind it.

    Different clutch - the vertical clutch they are referring to is for actuating the chronograph mechanism, not for the barrel and mainspring.
