Help! New to watch collecting

Anyone know who many crown turns for full power reserve on a TUDOR Black Bay 58 79030N / 79030B

Also will I break the watch if I turn it too much?

Thanks guys!

You can’t over-wind an automatic movement. It’s an inherent feature of their design.

20 - 30 winds should be more than enough to give it a healthy reserve. After that, as long as you wear it (and move about, sitting still at a desk won’t help), the rotor should keep it running pretty much indefinitely.

I tried 30 turns but only got 29 hours

I bough it used so I just wanna make sure it gets 70 hours power reserve without using

Maybe 70-80 turns ?

Thank you for your reply! 💪

I’m not so particularly concerned with power reserve as others are. When I grab a watch and it’s dead, I give it around 20 half winds and it’s good to go. Also gotta say, there’s value in learning the ways of the mechanical watch with cheaper options than a BB58.

If you want to test the maximum power reserve just keep winding until you start feeling some resistance in the winding action. I managed to get around 68 hours from my Ranger when it was fully wound.

Thanks everyone for the help! 🍻
