WUS has a nice thread about breaking in mechanical watches – why don’t you just wear them? Fun advice.
To maintain accuracy it is not necessary that you wind up your watch on a regular basis if you don´t wear it day by day. But if you`re wearing your handwounded watch day by day it seems reasonable to wind it up daily, so that the tension of the spring is kinda constant which ist the best way to provide accuracy.
No problem with automatic watches though when wearing on a daily basis because the automatic winding “automatically” provides the “right” tension of the spring.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
