Many of you Invicta fans will recognize this pic as a mechanical (manual wind) Invicta skeleton watch. After a long wait for delivery, I finally received mine yesterday.
I haven't owned a manual wind watch in many, many years and am somewhat nervous about the possibility of over-winding this one and breaking the mainspring.
As I *think* I recall reading somewhere, about 40 daily turns (20 full turns ?) will suffice.
How can I know for certain when I've wound it enough? Is there any safeguard in this watch to prevent over-winding?
