I read that some watches only wind in one direction? Really?

What about Seiko, Omega, Invicta?

Thanks...

Winding direction and number of turns required is dependent on movement. I believe most automatic Seiko movements wind in both CW and CCW directions. Try this database. Orbita - DatabaseS (http://orbita.com/2010_web/NEW/Database-S.htm)

SF,

Thanks for the link. It appears the Seiko 5 series is either CW or CCW as you stated.

I purchased a Brookstone 2 watch winder at a local mall. I have it set to CW and 1150 TBD.

Could I use a lower TBD number or...?

I think you will find your Seiko will stay fully powered up with between 600 and 900 turns per day. I have several non-adjustable winders with TPD of 600 or so and all my Seiko movements from my 7S36 and 4R36 Seiko 5s to my Ananta 6R24 operate well at this lower TPD rate. My winders that can be programed are set to alternate between CW and CCW throughout the winding cycle.

SF,

Thanks again...

I set mine to 785 TPD and set the direction to bidirectional. It alternates between CW and CCW with each turn.

Cheers

It doesnt really matter i dont think. If you really are not sure i would call Swiss T Gallery cause they have a watch winder phone support that can help you.
