  • What does power reserve mean?

Power reserve is the maximum amount of time in which a mechanical movement can power itself when the mainspring has been fully wound.  A bidirectional rotor inside of the caseback of your watch  winds the mainspring through movement of the wearer’s wrist.  When first purchased or not worn consistently the watch may not be running but will start with a few revolutions of the rotor. We recommend that you wind the crown 30-40 revolutions in order to ensure maximum power reserve and accuracy.
