Are automatic PAMs as robust as their manual wind counterparts?
Is it generally damaging to an unworn auto to wind it regularly whilst it's not seeing wrist time?
I'm averse to watch winders and have always preferred the manual wind PAMs over the autos - however, a little temptation in the guise of the 382 has convinced me take a walk on the 'dark' side : )

I'm curious too . . . My 63C is on the winder quite a bit, I like that the date is accurate . . . which I guess is the whole reason for the winder in the first place! My in/out watch choices are all manuals, so I don't mind that they stop when I'm not wearing them, KH

Unnecessary wear and tear on the internals.

I would not buy a watch that has spent time on a winder. My own personal preference.
