Hi guys,

As some of you know, I picked up my 1st Pam last week, 560 - P5000 8 day movement.

This is my first manual wind watch, and looking forward to winding once a week. Which I had to do this Saturday.

Novice question but roughly how long/ how many turn should give it a full wind? I was winding for what only felt a minute or so (clockwise) until I felt the crown kick back slightly ( I don't want to overwind - is this possible - too much force maybe?)

Or should it come to complete stop?

I know when purchasing from an AD they'd run through all this, unfortunately mine was from a second hand dealer, whilst a good service, wasn't a specialist in the Panerai's/

Thanks for any advice.

Hi Brad
My PAM 564 has the P5000 movement and from dead, it takes about 120 winds to bring it to full charge.
As DP said, as it approaches full, I wind it slower and with very little torque (very gently) and I keep winding until it stops. The movement is very smooth to wind but does seem to build up a little more tension shortly before full.
Enjoy!

And if you are unsure about its fully winded which will last 8 to 9 days, just wind it up again after 4 to 5 days. so you never have to "crank it" in order to make sure its fully winded at the time of winding.
