Nice.... I'm thinking more and more about a manual wind.
What is a manual wind?
A mechanical movement.
It is how watches originated...it started in pocket watches and then of course wrist watches.
Then a rotor and other parts were added and you have an automatic mechanical.
And then of course in the 70's came quartz watches.
Mechanical watches have to be wound, by way of the crown , to keep the time going.Usually you wind the watch once a day.
