Watch winders: A Tool for the Esteemed Gentleman
Cigar humidors, tie racks, shoe cedars, watch winders: all odd, but necessary accessories that any
esteemed gentlemen will have in their toolkit. For those of you who do not know, a watch winder is a
mechanical device that will keep your self-winding wrist watch operating "in a timely manner" if you
will. Watches are designed to flow via the pull of gravity, so the gears must be
constantly wound with an internal spring.
Watch winders are mainly for the person who has one or more watches, most
of them being more on the expensive side. If you own any collectible watches
Rolex, Tag or other high end watches, this is the right tool for the job.
There are two main types of watch winders: there are single watch winders
and there are quad watch winders. Obviously the difference between the two
is one will wind one watch, the other one will wind four watches. There are also a myriad of other sizes
of watch winders out there, all the way up to case sized which will hold dozens of watches.
There are a few features worth noting with any watch winder:
It has a clear glass in the front, which will eloquently showcase your watches on something nice,
usually your dresser or night stand in your room.
It has a motor that is powered by electricity/AC cord which will ensure that it will last for years
You can choose different coloring or finishes on the watch winder
As with anything, quality goes up when the price does.
For most, a watch winder is not necessarily a luxury item - it is a necessity. Most people who are at the
point in their life who own several watches, do not have the time to sit around winding them for a few
minutes each. Time is money and money is time.
If you are looking for a gift, a watch winder is the perfect gift for any watch owner. If you are wondering
if you are buying the correct watch winder, worry not - the majority of watch winders out there are the
same and will most likely fit the person receiving the watch winder.
In terms of brand quality, Buben is the Cadillac of all watch winders. It is known as being one of the best
out there, if not the best and has held its name up for years. Orbita is more familiar name that you
might have heard of, it is an American made watch winder and is middle market.
