Pam 560 8 day - Operating Query/ Winding

Hi guys,

As some of you know, I picked up my 1st Pam last week, 560 - P5000 8 day movement.

This is my first manual wind watch, and looking forward to winding once a week. Which I had to do this Saturday.

Novice question but roughly how long/ how many turn should give it a full wind? I was winding for what only felt a minute or so (clockwise) until I felt the crown kick back slightly ( I don't want to overwind - is this possible - too much force maybe?)

Or should it come to complete stop?

I know when purchasing from an AD they'd run through all this, unfortunately mine was from a second hand dealer, whilst a good service, wasn't a specialist in the Panerai's/

Thanks for any advice.
