Hello, and welcome to the forum. Please don´t forget to visit the Member Introduction section to say hello.

I can´t help with the question but I´m sure there are others who can.

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

Welcome.

Based on the link below, the Sellita SW200-1 needs 650-800 turns per day “TPD” in either direction. I usually use the setting for “both” directions on entry-level ETA/Sellita movements. I see the Piccolo has an “alternating” setting - that’s what I would use.

You’ll need a chronograph and some paper :thumbup: to do the maths based on the 4 timing settings listed. Work out which option gives to closest to the required TPD. Avoid simply selecting the largest TPD - you definitely want the closest.

Good luck.

Welcome to the forum. :wave:

You are always able to verify the required TPD (turns per day) for a given movement fitted into a CW watch by looking it up in the Movementes section of the CWArchive.

Good luck.

The information to be found in the archives never ceases to amaze me. It really is a treasure trove!
