When and how should I wind my watch with a hand-winding movement?

  • Entretien montre ref 3748421

We recommend that you wind your mechanical watch once a day (even if you don't wear it every day), so as to produce the energy required for its movement to work well during the following 24 hours.
Your Jaeger-LeCoultre watch is wound to its maximum capacity when you feel a certain resistance when turning the crown. Take care not to try to wind your haute horlogerie watch beyond this point, since this could cause the mainspring to snap.
