    AP Royal Oak Moonphase 25594ST question

    I need some help as I have a stupid question.
    As I may need to put my watch aside for a while, I want to use my watch winder. However I don't understand which direction it should be set rotating?
    The Royal Oak manual says that the movement 2324-2825 is an unidirectional automatic winding (clockwise – the dial side). So I am not sure which direction I should set my winder to rotate (looking from the from\nt side as well). Any help would be appreciated. My other watches are bi-directional winding and this is how I set up my winder.

    Here is my watch, if this helps


    Thanks.

    Rotation direction

    I posted elsewhere, but this is perhaps better place..
    I am confused as to what direction should I set my winder to rotate (looking from the watch face), if my watch instruction for my calibre says "Automatic winding unidirectional (clockwise – the dial side)".
    Thanks for the help and sorry as I realize that this perhaps is a stupid question to ask :)

    I trust you on the answer, and I am sure I am overthinking it, but what makes it confusing is that if the winding mechanism is working clockwise from the dial side, and knowing that the rotor is moved by inertia, to make it move clockwise relative to the case, the case should rotate counterclockwise looking from the dial...
    I need a drink 🙂

    If the manual states CW looking at the dial, then obviously the watch needs to rotate CCW.
    You won’t do any harm with the watch rotating in the wrong direction, so try it as suggested, and if that’s wrong, then change it.

    The watch facing you needs to rotate counter clockwise for the oscillating weight to rotate clockwise and wind.
    However uni directional winders, (which always rotate clockwise), are designed to slip counterclockwise so it won't make any difference if you leave your winder rotating both ways. It simply won't wind any power to the spring if the watch rotates solely clockwise.

    Re: Rotation direction

    Find our what movement you are talking about and check the Orbita Watch Database. From your description however it is clockwise.

    The 25594 ROYAL OAK Moonphase Calendar with cal2385 winds CW, set to 800 turns per day.

    I didn’t know you had to rotate it differently for different watches. U learn something new every day
