GMT II Turns Per Day Setting?

Hi all,

I just received a Brookstone Watch Winder for X-mas. Was wondering what the turns per day setting is for a Rolex GMT Master II? I also have it set for bidirectional rotations. Thanks for all the help.

Bidirectional is fine, since your rotor turns both ways. If your running it every day, 600/day should be adequate.

The Orbita database states bi-directional and 650 turns for that model. Unsure what options you have on winder but close to that will do. When they don't have data on a watch they always suggest starting off low and increasing to rate until it keeps the watch wound.

If you're wearing it a lot and putting it in the winder at night or days off you should be fine anywhere in the area.
