    Hand Wind Watch?

    I don't have any dive watches but I fit the description of desk diver with my job and I realized that with my slimline moonphase I have to walk around and swing my arms with exaggerated motion so my watch won't die after sitting at home after 1 day. Which makes me wonder if Frederique Constant will make any manual wind watches in the future?

    Just give it 5-10 winds at the crown when you take it off for the day?

    Not moving your arm enough while at home for 1 day unfortunately will not be enough to convince FC to make a manual to fill gap in the market.

    Which position is that one? I think the 1 position is to change time, 2 for date/moonphase, not sure if 0 actually can be wound? I need to look at the manual and online more.

    I just hate the feeling that I'm worried the watch is not going to have enough juice because of my sedentary work But one can always dream of a perfect world

    Fully pushed in is the winding position
    1 click away from watch is to adjust date and moonphase
    2 click away is to adjust time.
