Maybe next I can learn how to post a pic in the right position. I tried to rotate but it would not allow. Maybe FAB can help!

before you hit the upload button, on the picture itself, on the top left there are 4 boxes...

if you move your mouse to it you can rotate or change the order of the pictures when you have several of them. Hope this helps

My pics prefer to be sideways also

There are winders for manual watches...

...the best part of this is the two differently-colored chrono hands. More should be like this.

Anyone have luck with manual winders?

I've seen hand assisters for small crowns but NO WAY am I locking a metal jaw on the crown teeth that's crazy. As for machines I've seen orbita but a 2 watch winder is $5K.

Orbita makes one for about $2k...Model #: w30001...

...can't attest to the results...

Different colored hands are a sign of confidence and quality control...

I Wind mine every few days and when I need to set usually just have to move the hands a few days.. so don't have to reset the whole thing

What a beautiful watch sir ! Grail ! I tried it at the QP Salon 2013 in London and it’s a stunner !

Was split between this and the 5204P..did not pull the trigger on either due to financial constraints but next complicated watch will be either of the two ..

all correct :)

for some reason, adjusting a watch is one of my therapy. I love adjusting watches to the correct time, I only leave the moon phase out because then I have to look online.

Manual Winder Vacheron

When I acquired the VC perpetual calendar it came with a manual winder. That winder works extremely well. The “Claws” that grap the crown are soft. When you put your watch In the winder, it winds it full, then reverses 3 times. This is repeated every 24 h...
