    Re: MO arrived !!!

    Got it today as I hoped

    I only have the crummy camera from my iPhone, but I will replace these "early" pics with nicer pictures later tonight/over the weekend.

    First impressions:
    - It is plain gorgeous. The pictures in the web site don't do it justice.
    - Finish quality on everything is just SUPER - truly a flawless work of art.
    - It is bigger than in the pictures. It fits my wrist perfectly, but I would not like anything bigger.

    Needless to say I am VERY impressed with the watch !!!




    Question: How much is "too" much for the hand-wound mechanism? Meaning, how do I know I have wound it "enough"? How many turns?

    I find that from a completely unwound spring mine needs about 45 half turns. Turn slowly, and at the end (fully wound) you will feel a distinct resistance. Then stop.
