Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Why is a watch winder useful?
Owners of automatic watches often ask themselves whether the use of watch winders really makes sense. To answer that, we have to include the many advantages that a watch winder offers. An automatic watch must be worn for the movement to run. If you put the automatic watch down, it will stop after the power reserve has been used up and the time, date or even the moon phase have to be set in a laborious manner. A watch winder therefore primarily offers time savings and convenience, as the watches are always wound up and ready for use.
The next point is storage, especially if you have several high quality watches. The watches can be safely and aesthetically displayed and presented in a watch winder and thus please the eye of watch lovers every day and enhance the interior with the elegant design. In addition, the watches are protected from external influences and dust in a watch winder with a glass door, which ensures that they retain their value over time.

How do Watch Winders work?

A watch winder winds the watch by rotating it by simulating the arm movement. A rotor in the clockwork mechanism is moved and transfers the torque to the winding mechanism via a spring - the watch runs and is ready for use.
Numerous useful functions offer additional convenience.
The speed winding offers the possibility to wind up a stopped watch at short notice so that it can be worn for the next occasion.
Thanks to the 12 o'clock position, the programs pause in the starting position and the clocks are always easy to read.
A well-equipped watch winder enables the individual setting of the TPD - turns per day specified by the manufacturer so that the movement is wound gently. Via an integrated touch display the watch winder can be programmed in steps of 50 between 650 - 1000 TPD, with left, right and alternating directions of rotation, thus covering the needs of all common automatic watches.
Watch winders with optional battery operation are also useful, depending on the number and weight of the watches, they can be operated for a period of 3 to 6 months, regardless of the power supply (e.g. for using the watch winder in a safe or vault).
