I just bought my pam 422. Thoughts but most important I need help.

First of thanks everyone that comment on my posts and the help that you gave so I took the decision and bought it.
My thoughts: it is a really great but still difficult watch.
The more I have it the more I like it though hars to combine with shirts, suits e.t.c needs though when you dress more casual it looks gorgeous. If someone is thinking about it and he has another nice watch more easy to wear with everything then do not hesitate worth it.
I bought it from chrono 24 and noone told me how to wind this watch.
I have a tag carrera, a rolex batman and a breitling quartz.
The first 2 I wind them around 50 times when stop and as long as I wear them the work perfectly. Big down side they last only 1 day.. it seems that this pam to be fully wind ( 3 days needs ) to much winding and I do not know if I make any mistakes.
And it seems that loosing power reserve even if I use it.
Can an owner of this model help me. How many times to fully wind and how often.
Thank you all.

422 has an indicator on the back of the watch showing the power reserve. i.e. how much time the watch will keep going. Look at that.

You need to wind it 150 turns to get 3 days out if it. You can't over wind it, you'll feel the spring slip in the barrel when you reach a full wind (just like an automatic).

Enjoy the watch (and don't wear it with a suit).
