UN freak - newbie questions

Apr 04, 2022,12:28 PM
 

Hey Everyone,


I recently bought a pre-owned UN freak 2 that came without box or papers. Can someone educate me what to look out for (I don't know if the watch is fully wounded or if it's possible to over-wind since there seems to be no resistance and I can keep going)? I tried researching online but don't seem to be able to find much resources on this. I managed to get it going and set the time but otherwise am unaware of any "nuances" of this watch. Appreciate everyone's help! 

Thanks,
Ewee

Thanks! I read that an indication that it's fully wound is when the mainspring is all "tight" in the center - I saw that and was worried if i go on, i might damage something. I have continued after reading your reply and have now heard the clicks, thanks ... 

Great UN....
