Automatic Watch Winder TPD Setting

Orient Crown created this database to help customers to search for their watches optimal TPD setting to keep their watch wound and which will result in enhancing the life span of the watch.

In most cases, this database presents information available on the manufacturer websites. If you would like to be sure about your watch TPD setting please contact the watch manufacturer /distributor directly.

Orient Crown cannot guarantee the accuracy of this database. We are only as good as the information that we receive directly from manufacturers, or through our research. If you cannot find your watch TPD setting within this database we suggest that you try the following method to determine your watch winding settings:

  • Place your fully wound automatic watch on your winder.
  • Set your winder to bi-directional winding at 1000 TPD.

If this setting doesn't keep your watch wound then try to choose one direction for the winding ( CW or CCW ).

If this setting keeps your watch wound, decrease TPD to the lowest setting that still keeps your watch wound.

Note: Most watches in the market wind bi-directionally will be able to wind at all rotational settings: Both, CW, CCW. Watches that wind uni-directionally will only be able to wind in one direction, either CW or CCW and in this case you need to find the required direction for your watch to wind from our database or you can try to wind CW if the watch don’t refill then use CCW and see the result if the watch keep working, if none of the above methods kept your watch wound then you need to consult your watch manufacturer / distributer.
