    Hello,

    I have a New Planet Ocean with the new master Chronometer 8900 Movement and since i am not wearing it for the time being, it is kept away from my hands for several days.

    The question i have is:

    1)- Do i need to wind it from time to time? if yes, then how many times? ( weekly? monthly?)
    2)- The crown, should i keep it closed or pulled-out?

    Appreciate you expert answers and support! ;)

    Regards

    Keep the crown closed to keep moisture out, just in case. If you want to wind it occasionally, you can, but it doesn't really need it. But pray tell, why aren't you wearing it?

    Is it one of those deals where your Mrs won't let you open it and wear it until your birthday or valentines day or something?
