    Hello all
    Quick question. In which direction should the red indicator dot on the winding wheel move as it winds? I started up the Atmos about a month ago after having it locked for the past year and a half. I checked the bellows first. Mine has moved south (counterclockwise looking at the clock from the face) the past week with warmer weather. Is this normal?

    Thanks in advance.
    Ry

    Sorry. My mistake. I was judging the direction of travel from the wrong reference point.
    Thanks.

    If you look at the clock from the front the red dot will travel clockwise to wind it.

    With the clock and bellows cold the chain will pull into the bellows and wind. As the bellows gets hot the chain will come out and the coil spring will pull it counter clockwise allowing the wheel to ratchet. The red dot should never go anticlockwise.
