Does an automatic watch need manual winding?

In order to get your automatic watch working in the correct way, it needs an initial energy supply by winding the crown manually. Approx. 15-20 winds of the crown is enough to ensure its reliable functioning (please refer to the user manual of your timepiece). Wearing the watch during the whole day (moving actively), can generate a power reserve up to 2 days.
