I'm wearing a Tissot Le Locle right now that has the same movement. Bought from jomashop via ebay for buyer protection stuff.

Quick run down of the movement. I'm getting -4 and +4 seconds per day so far after about a week of wearing it. 80 hour power reserve paired with manual winding is really really cool in that you can set it down after work on Friday and pick it up Monday confidently knowing it'll be relatively on time. Has seconds hacking. Based on the eta 2824-2 movement but at 3hz rather than 4hz.

Damage from overwinding usually occurs in manual wind watches. Automatic watches have a "clutch" of sorts where the main spring can't wind past a certain point. This is implemented because the rotor will continue to spin regardless of how full the power reserve is. Manual wind movements will exert more resistance on the crown as you wind and approach a full power reserve.

As opposed to "on strap" or "on band". Bracelet usually refers to the metal bracelet, whereas "strap" or "band" usually will refer to leather or other material.

What does that mean "on Bracelet"? do they sell watches without the Bracelet/Band?

So, "Automatic" means its mechanism is powered by arm movement?

So I have one as well but am confused about what you wrote. Do you also hand wind it in addition to wearing it regularly?

When you hand wind, how many times do you wind and how many times a week?

Also, which direction do you hand wind? Anticlockwise or clockwise?

i have found that if I set it down on Friday, it is dead on Monday. My watch is also the Powermatic 80.

Sorry, I am a little naive about automatic watches.

I have owned mine for about a week so far so I can't comment on an established routine yet as I'm happily in the honeymoon phase Smilie

For hand winding, I turn the crown clockwise. I read the manual and I believe it said 80 turns was enough to get a full wind(edit:re-read the manual) . Some movements can be damaged by overwinding but I'm not sure if the Powermatic 80 is susceptible. I'll give it a try this weekend to confirm.

Good price and movement for anyone interested in an automatic in this price range.

So there's a few factors in there. These are "hacking / winding" movements, "hacking" means that when you pull out the crown to adjust the time the seconds hand stops so you can be more precise on accuracy. The winding part means that even if you don't wear on wrist to feed the automatic movement, you can rotate the crown (usually clockwise) to "recharge" the mainspring. I work at a desk job, so my wrist, and therefore my watch doesn't get all of the benefits of an automatic watch. I have a winder that rotates my automatic watches when I put them in there. This is where the ability to hand wind comes in handy. If you forget to put your watch in the winder if you aren't going to wear it for a couple of days, you have to shake it around and whatnot to get it to run. If you can wind an automatic, you simply wind it back up, set it, and put it on your wrist. The previous poster about the clutch mechanism is absolutely spot on. You can wind and not break the movement. This is a good watch with a good movement. Well worth the deal.
