Hi there and welcome. You really should make a new thread for this as it's not relevant to the topic.
A bit of back pressure won't cause any damage. It's best practice when adjusting the time to go slightly past the time you want, then back a couple of minutes then advance to the correct time. So it's a forward/back/forward movement.Is it really safe to set the minute hand by turning it counter clockwise?
the second hand's movement seems interrupted during the adjustment.
I got a 1980's era brand new Russian Boctok Military 200m diver or "amphibian" as the Russians call them for free from a pawn shop in Brooklyn. I took the train into the city to visit a friend and she new I liked watches so she took me to the shop. While looking at some overpriced Russian watches he had he brought out from the back a new unissued Russian military amphibian watch with a nice blue dial and the CCCP logo on the dial. He said if you want you can have this one for free it broken. I thanked him and when I got home later I took a look at the watch. I examined the crown under my lamp and it appeared to be a screw down but it would not unscrew so I grabbed a pair of pliers and a rag and put a little extra into it and it popped loose. It only has one click as it had not day or date feature but the hands set smoothly. I wound the stem a couple times and ir ran. I wore it for a couple days after putting a band on it and not only did it run but it was accurate to within about 3 seconds a day! The only thing I bad thing I could say about it is the power reserve was no better than 24 hours max no matter how much you wound it. It was a manual winder.True story: A buddy of mine who owns many many Rolexes couldn't set the time on his wifes TAG and finally ripped out the crown, stem and the whole shebang with pliers. When he went to the watchmakers they asked him why he didn't just unscrew it. This type of thing really happens.
Righty tighty lefty loosey Marv....
