The first self-winding mechanism was invented for pocket watches in 1770 by Abraham-Louis Perrelet, but the first "self-winding", or "automatic", wristwatch was the invention of a British watch repairer named John Harwood in 1923. This type of watch allows for constant winding without special action from the wearer; it works by an eccentric weight, called a winding rotor, which rotates with the movement of the wearer's wrist. The back-and-forth motion of the winding rotor couples to a ratchet to automatically wind the mainspring. Self-winding watches usually can also be wound manually so they can be kept running when not worn or if the wearer's wrist motions are inadequate to keep the watch wound.
********************************************************************
Setting the time
You will need to grasp the crown (button at the top) tightly and pull pretty hard. When you hear a click you will be able to turn the crown/button to set the time. Once you have set the time you will need to press the button firmly back towards the watch until you feel or hear a click.

Winding your pocket watch
Automatic self winding watches will run continuously and keep accurate time if worn everyday after the first hand-winding. If you only wear your automatic mechanical watch occasionally you will need to re-set and hand-wind your watch again.

Your self winding watch will need to be wound fully the first time you use it. Turn the winding crown (same button you set the time with) approx 15 turns clockwise. Stop if you feel resistance. The mainspring is made to wind up fully once a day if needed. Once you finish winding the watch you will need to rock the watch back and forth to activate it. This watch runs on kinetic energy and movement is part of what keeps it working.

* There are two reasons often given for this tradition. The first (and likely apocryphal) is that "IV" is a representation for "Ivpiter", or Jupiter, the supreme Roman god, and that people were afraid to invoke his name on timepieces.

The real reason is aesthetics: watchmakers want to keep an approximate vertical symmetry in symbol width, and "IIII" is at better parity with "VIII" than "IV".

As for "correctness" of IV versus IIII, Roman numerals weren't standardized until long after the ancient Romans. Use of forms like "IIII" and "IIX" (for 8) and "IC" (for 99) was fairly common and, at times, preferred. It's a m
Locate the mainspring. It is between the '10' and the face center on a pocket watch, and between the "1" and the face center on a wrist watch. When loose the coils are relaxed into their outer area. At about 10 twists you will still see space between the coils. At 15 twists or less it is fully wound but you need to STOP while you can see slight space in the coil and before you feel resistance, so that the mainspring will not become frozen due to winding it too tight. When over wound the mainspring is in a tight knot at its center. Sometimes you can get an over wound watch to loosen up by giving it several good shakes. You grasp the watch firmly (so as not to drop it) and 'snap' it several times.
