    How much do you wind a watch?
    Does it differ from Rolex to Panerai to AP?

    I honestly wind in the following method:

    1 wind then ill reverse my finger to its original state (neutral so no unwinding or winding done) then wind again then rotate my finger back (holding the crown also) and wind again for about 22 to 25 winds.

    My questions are:

    How much to wind a watch? When to stop?
    Keep winding forward or 1 wind forward then rotate finger stance back to natural position then wind again?

    Like with Rolex, there seems to be a clutch to prevent overwinding on the PAM 312..

    When I tested the power reserve on mine I gave it over 100 turns which lasted more than 3 days. SaifAlSuwaidi, when you describe how you wind your 312 are you letting go of the crown after each turn? That is what I do, on the rare occasions I actually wind it.

    Xelor,no.

    Grip crown with thumb between 10 and 11 and index finger between 4 and 5 (if cross view) then wind till wind forward as much as my fingers will extend then while still holding the crown, rotate my fingers back to where they were while reversing the crown and then forward again and so on.
