What Do You Must to Know  Before Buying A Watch Winder?

What Do You Must to Know Before Buying A Watch Winder?

December 16, 2019

Do I need a watch winder?

Should I buy a watch winder? must be a question often asked. If you are a watch owner, especially have such a watch requires attention and maintenance, one way to maintain your watch is to use a watch winder.  

Considerations when choosing watch winders

  • Single or multiple

If you only have one or two automatic watches, then a single winder will probably suffice. But if you are a watch enthusiast or watch collector, you can also choose a watch winder which can wind multiple watches at once. 

  • Apperance

Watch winders have a variety of different materials and designs. So It's depends on your needs, you can choose a winder box you prefer. Some have a wood finish on the outside, while others have a genuine leather or carbon fiber shell. Most watch winders is also a display cabinet which has a clear front in glass, so your watches can be seen.

  • Power Source

Most watch winders are powered by AC adapter and plug into a standard electrical socket, fews are battery-powered. Maybe adapter powered will limit where the winder can be placed, if you want to wear your watches while traveling, battery-powered one is better, because you can go wherever you want them to. 

  • Winging & Storage space

Many multiple watch winders include additional space for storing watches that may not require winding. If you want to keep all your watches in one box, but some are not needed winding, the extra storages are helpful. Not only because they keep your watch wound, but they provide a safe place to store and display your watches.

  • Rotation Mode

All automatic watches have a certain number of turns per day (TPD) and different watches require rotations in one direction or the other to keep your timekeeping accurate. If you have watches from more than one brand, you can find a watch winder that offers multi-directional winding and allows you to program the exact number of rotations per day.

What Questions Should I Ask About a Winder?

  • Are the number of turns programmable, or are there multiple set turn options?(Ex. 650, 850, 950 TPD.)
  • What are the rotation options? (Clockwise, counterclockwise, bi-directional or a custom rotation.)
  • Can the number of winds per day be programmed, or is it set?
  • Does the winder stop after a period of time, or do you have to manually stop it?
  • If you have a heavy watch or a watch with a large watch band, be sure your winder will support the weight, the band, and rotate properly.
  • How is the winder powered? (AC or batteries, or is there the option for both?)
  • If you are considering a dual, triple, quad or larger winder, be sure the each motor can be programmed separately.

Properly Use and Set Your Watch Winder

As you know, collecting automatic watches is always a great investment, a watch winder, as an important tool to protect watches, you should know how to use it the right way. 

At first, please choose a high quality watch winder, pick the right one at the proper setting is one of the best ways to keep your watches at peak performance. When you find your watch is not working anymore, following simple steps will help you:

  1. First make sure your TPD and directional settings have not been accidentally changed.
  2. Then manually winding your watch by turning the crown at most 40 turns, because your winder will not wind a watch that has totally stopped.
  3. Make sure you know which direction your watch gathers energy efficiently. It can be clockwise, counter-clockwise, or bi-directional, then you can set your watch winder to turn in such right direction.
  4. If your watches can keep proper time, that means your watch winder works perfectly. 

You may also want to think about:

  • Power supply (Do you want to use a plug, battery or both).
  • TPD (turns per day – more on this later).
  • The size of your watch and if it will fit.
  • The weight of your watch.
  • Noise level.
