I post this in that it will help you find a proper winder
not saying i know more than JLC, but this is bs if ive ever heard it.

a properly designed watch wont care if the rotor is spun 100 times or 1000 times, it should never strain the mainspring. at worst, you are looking at maybe having to have the watch serviced a couple years earlier.

OP Wolf winders are everyone's go to and have proven reliable.
