How to wind up the clock?
Today, wrist mechanical watches are a biga rarity, and many do not know how to start them. Such watches have already become a rarity, and those rare specimens (and even in good condition) that fall into our hands, must be protected as the apple of the eye. This mechanism can have a different structure, and therefore requires a different approach. Let's consider this issue in more detail.
How to wind up a watch with different mechanisms
Any watch should be started quietly and without haste,so as not to damage the wheel and crown of the plant - these are extremely vulnerable parts. For certain types of watches, the periodicity and observance of the exact interval between the windings is important. Below are the recommendations that will help you figure out how to wind up the watch with different mechanisms.
How to start a mechanical watch
It is quite easy to learn how to startmechanical watches, both women's and men's. The main thing is to do this regularly, from day to day, at the same time. Many people believe that the plant is only required in the mornings, but this is not entirely true. And it does not matter when to start the mechanism, it is important to do this at about the same time.
How to wind up a self-winding watch
It will not be difficult to wind up a self-winding watch,because in them the mechanism is not so demanding. Therefore, the watch is ideal for daily wearing. Do the same plant as a mechanical clock (regularly at the same time), in a watch with a self-winding is not required. They can be started every other day, as they can "walk" for up to 48 hours.
Universal Tips on Clock Factory
- Start the clock, both mechanical and those,which have the mechanism of the car factory, you can only turn the arrows forward, moving the crown wheel to the stop. As for the setting of the arrows, you can turn the wheel at the same time, either counterclockwise or clockwise, in the direction where there will be less revolutions;
- If you need to set the time, then circularMovements must be made intermittently (several turns), and not one continuous rotation. Watchmakers say that this will help to save the minute gear from breakage;
- If the watch is equipped with a calendar, you need to wind it with smooth and slow movements. The mechanism of the device is very "gentle" and is not designed for too high a load;
- You can wind up the clock in two ways, and both of themwill be correct. The first of them is to rotate the crown wheel only forward, and the second one - back and forth, that is - back and forth. In this case, you should give preference to the first option, because in this case, do not wear clockwork gears and cam muff. The use of the second version of the plant also does not hurt the clock, because when the wheel is turned back and forth, all the details of the mechanism are properly lubricated;
- It is inadmissible to exert too much force whenpulling out the wheel factory. If this is felt resistance, the head should be rotated very smoothly, while gently pulling it. This movement will contribute to the adjustment of the cam clutch and other parts of the mechanism for transferring the arrows;
- To return the wheel head back into place, turn, also without much effort, to drown it closer to the base of the watch;
- If torsion of the wheel comes with effort, then before you wind the watch, you can give them to the watch repairman to lubricate the mechanism. This will protect the product from breakdowns.
