Setting the time
You will need to grasp the crown (button at the side) tightly and pull. 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 crown/button firmly back towards the watch until you feel or hear a click.

Winding your pocket watch
You will need to wind your watch fully every day of use. Turn the winding crown (same button you set the time with) approximately 12-15 turns clockwise. Stop before you feel resistance. The mainspring is made to wind up all the way once a day. Once you finish winding the watch you will need to rock the watch back and forth to activate the mainspring. Most watches will run 26-30 hours on a full winding, but there can be exceptions.

* 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.
