About A. Mantei

A.Mantei's creation of watches with creativity and traditional craftsmanship is at the core of our unique concept of mechanical watches. They handcraft all dials, minute and hour hands, as well as the sterling silver case, rotors, escapement components, all engravings, and dial painting! A-Mantei watches are produced in single pieces. A-Mantei manufactures individual watches which are produced only once in their respective designs and are therefore truly one-offs! For individual components, designs are first drafted, dimensional drawings are drawn, and then hand-fabricated. The hands are transferred to steel or gold plates, sawed out by hand with a saw, then filed, sanded, chamfered, blued, satin-brushed, and polished. So, all production steps are done by hand!

Why Manual Winding for A.Mantei Watches?

Taking the time to set and wind your A. Mantei mechanical watch can help you understand its mechanics and understand the watch's functions. Winding the mainspring of a watch is very important to ensure that the watch operates correctly. We start the day with a cup of coffee, so why not wind the watch?

A.Mantei Manual Winding Steps

- Double tap to pull the crown outwards
- Turn clockwise until resistance is felt (usually 30-40 turns)
- then press back to the original position

A.Mantei Watch the Winder Setting

Most A.Mantei watch automatic movements can be wound properly with most watch winders. Usually, A.Mantei's self-winding movement needs to rotate 650-800 revolutions per day, and most of them can be wound clockwise.

If you cannot find your watch model (or movement) in this watch, you can try to determine your A.Mantei winding mode. You should choose the combined winding mode (CW+CCW) and minimum turns per day (TPD).Then place your watch into the automatic watch winder and check after a few days how accurately your watch shows the time. If it runs behind, it is necessary to increase the number of TPD by one step.

A.Mantei Watch Time Adjustment Method

- Pull the crown outwards with one push
- Set the watch to the exact local time.
-Push in the crown and turn clockwise until tight.
- The crown is pushed firmly into position 1 and the watch starts to run.

Can I Always Wind my Watch Manually With the Crown?

It’s okay to do this once in a while, but not too often—especially if your watch has a screw-down crown.
Firstly, with crown winding, the gears and other parts of an automatic movement will wear out faster, as will the screw-in crown system, as it is not designed for frequent use. Self-winding watches should be worn for at least eight hours a day to make the most of their power reserves, so rather than letting your automatic watch's power reserve drain, invest in a simple automatic watch winder.
