i read somewhere i must hear "something" or louder "clicking" to confirm it's almost fully winded.So i just winded to full again today 13-4-2009 6.20 pm...lets see when it will stop ticking. (i didn't hear anything louder than the normal soft consistent clicking sound during winding till i lost count how many turns i've winded.But pretty sure it's fully winded,neither i feel any bit of force to stop winding)


PS.Guys sorry,this is my first manual watch....so pls bear with me.

hi louie, when my 233 is fully wound, there's a bit of tension to indicate that it's fully wound but i don't notice any clicking. i'm so scared to turn if further!

tension?! no i didn't feel any force or tension at all...Oh the "clickings" is really soft and consistent during the winding process. So i think this is a norm for most watches...dun worry abt overwinding our babies,i'm sure it has the slipping clutch built in to prevent over winding...

i just got to know it last night...and Ryan was rite on time to alert me. Or i will be stone all day today at work... Yeah, it's not like our rollies quick change. Date changes very quickly within minutes...but not this babies. When i got Ryan's PM i was huhh.. Our 233 takes hour to completely flip in full...our guess is due to the complexity of the inhouse movements.
