This is what you need to know about watch winders

Automatic watches have a great appeal to watch enthusiasts. Everyone knows the watches of brands such as Breitling, Omega, Rolex, Longines, Oris, Tag Heuer and other well-known Swiss watch brands. These brands produce high-end watches that meet the highest standards in terms of technique, aesthetics and use of materials. Automatic watches from these brands are certainly not cheap, but you get a lot in return. An automatic timepiece consists of many parts that are perfectly matched to each other so that it can function completely independently without a battery. This technique in itself is very special. Then we haven't even mentioned the design and beautiful materials from which these watches are made. However, there is also a major drawback to automatic watches. We will write about this drawback and the solution to this drawback in this article. We already give away that the solution is to use a watch winder.

A watch with an automatic movement obtains energy through movement of the watch or manual winding through the crown. If such a watch does not move or is wound, it comes to a standstill. This is of course inconvenient because then the time, date and/or other functions are no longer set correctly. In addition, you must first provide the watch with energy before you can wear it.

You may now think that your automatic watch never stops and that this article is not intended for you. However, if you do not wear an automatic watch +-30-48 hours, it will already stop. Also think about the situation that you have several automatic watches that you obviously don't wear at the same time. The watches that you do not wear do not move and come to a standstill. Standstill literally means decline for automatic watches. You can compare this to a car that has stood still for too long. The oil in the automatic movement is no longer properly distributed over all movable parts of the movement when it is stationary. This can cause the parts to function less smoothly, which can lead to damage or inaccurate time measurement.

Fortunately, you can prevent downtime of automatic watches by using a watch winder. A watch winder is the most ideal accessory for automatic watches. The device gently rotates or shakes watches, simulating wrist movement, as it were. This conserves energy in the watch and keeps the watch running smoothly. In this watch accessory, an automatic watch does not come to a stop. One of the main advantages of using a watch winder for automatic watches is that they are always ready to wear. You take the watch out and put it on your wrist. You no longer have to set the time, date or other functions correctly or manually provide the timepiece with energy. You are immediately ready to wear the watch with the correct settings. A watch winder is therefore not only good for the maintenance and preservation of an automatic watch, it is also a fantastic accessory that is extremely useful.

But which watch winder is best to buy for your automatic watches? There are quite a few different brands with their own pros and cons. In general, a good watch winder must meet various conditions. First of all, the quality of the motors is of great importance. After all, the motors rotate the watches. A good motor is distinguished by durability, smooth rotation and low noise. Motors that meet these characteristics come from countries such as Japan, Germany and Switzerland. Examples of brands that use Japanese motors are Benson, Paul Design, Boda Concept and Heisse & Söhne. A brand that uses German motors is Chronovision.

From Switzerland come brands such as Swiss Kubik, RDI and Bernard Favre that only use Swiss motors. The Dutch brand Benson also uses Swiss motors for its Swiss Series watch winders. Orbita is based in America, which also uses Swiss motors. The difference between the Japanese, German and Swiss engines is mainly in the noise level. The Swiss motors are virtually silent while the Japanese and German motors have a slightly higher sound level, but the difference is very limited.

In addition to the quality of the motors, functionality is very important. Because every automatic watch is wound in a different way, depending on the automatic movement inside the watch, it is important that the watch winder has all directions of rotation and adjustable revolutions per day. The directions of rotation are clockwise, counter-clockwise and alternating. The revolutions are shown in TPD; turns per day. These run from 600 to 2100. One automatic watch is wound clockwise at 600 TPD, the other counter-clockwise at 900 TPD. That is why it is important that you can set the watch winder per watch. This makes you flexible and you can wind different automatic watches at the same time in the same watch winder. A good model therefore excites every watch, regardless of watch brand or model.

The functionality is also reflected in other components. You can think of a door with which you can safely rotate the watches, LED lighting for optimal visibility, fingerprint system so that you can open and close the door with your fingerprint, sleep mode, power winding and a remote control. All these functions are not necessary but give the use of a watch winder an extra dimension. It offers the user more luxury and more convenience. Of course, extra functionalities also lead to a higher price.

In addition to the motors and functionality, the material from which the watch winder is made is also important. They are made of plastic, wood or aluminum. These materials each have their own advantages and disadvantages. Plastic is relatively cheap but has a higher noise level because the sound of the motor is not absorbed. Wood is a perfect material for watch winders because it has a high-quality appearance and absorbs sound. Aluminum is strong, maintenance-free and has a modern look. When you want to buy a watch winder, always look at the materials and finish. This is a good indication of the quality that the brand offers.

It is sometimes stated that the use of a watch winder is bad for automatic watches. Due to the constant movement, it would lead to wear and tear. We have to get this out of the world for a while, because the use is certainly not bad for automatic watches, it is good and recommended. First, the watches are not rotated continuously. A good watch winder works with a program in which the rotation is alternated with breaks. During the pause, the spring in the automatic movement relaxes. In addition, the rotors rotate at a very slow pace (+- 5-10 revolutions per minute). As we noted earlier, downtime leads to problems. Controlled and steady movement with adequate rest breaks between winding cycles is an excellent and completely safe way to power automatic watches.

What you should definitely know about a watch winder is that it is best to buy it from a specialist. After all, you want a good brand and model for your automatic watches so that they are supplied with energy professionally and safely. A specialist in watch winders has experience, knowledge and different brands in his collection so that you have a choice. In addition, he can provide you with advice and recommend a brand and model that best suits your automatic watches. Because the choice of a good watch winder depends on your preferences, the amount of watches you want to wind and the budget that you have available. Do you want a simple model that is purely aimed at providing your watch with energy or do you want a luxurious model with many functions and luxury? Do you want a copy that functions on mains power or do you want to place the watch winder in a safe and is a battery function necessary? Are you looking for a model that must be whisper-quiet because it is next to your bed, or is the sound level less important because the watch winder is somewhere in the office, in the living room or in the hobby room? These are aspects that a specialist can help with.

Choosing a watch winder for your automatic watches is not difficult, but you should consider the above aspects to make the best choice. Are you having problems during your search? Consult a specialist so that you will be provided with good advice so that you can enjoy this cool watch accessory. A specialist is almost always an official dealer of various brands. This also ensures that you are buying a good product that comes with a warranty.

The final advice regarding what you need to know about watch winders is that cheap leads to expensive purchases. A cheap one will not have the quality and durability you would like for winding automatic watches. The motor, functionality, materials and finish are of lesser quality. Such watch winders are often offered on Amazon, Ebay, Bol.com and Aliexpress. Our advice is to choose a well-known brand that invests in quality, innovation and technology.

Watch winders for 2 automatic watches

If you have several automatic watches, it can happen that your automatic watches stop again. You have not worn one or more watches, so they are now standing still. If you want to wear the watch again, you have to reset the time and date and then manually wind or shake the watch again so that it is energized again and starts running.

A stationary automatic watch is annoying and uncomfortable, but you can easily prevent it by using a watch winder. A watch winder rotates the watch in a program so that the automatic watch obtains movement and thus energy. This will allow the watch to function as if you were wearing it. You no longer have to manually wind the watches and reset the time and date. Very handy and easy if you want to have your automatic watch ready to wear right away. Especially in the morning when you have to go to work or when you want to wear your favorite automatic watch to an appointment, party or outing. In short, a watch winder is the most handy and logical accessory if you have several automatic watches and you choose to preserve your watches.

Watch winder for 2 watches

If you have two automatic watches in your possession, it is best to choose a watch winder that is suitable for winding two, three or four automatic watches. Then you always have enough space for when you buy an extra watch in the future. Because we all know that a watch enthusiast always looks at other watches and waits for the right moment to make a beautiful addition to the collection.

There are all kinds of watch winders for 2 watches. There is a lot of difference in technique, material and quality. Of course, there are also many different designs and colors. This means you will always find the watch winder that suits you. There are also many different brands that produce attractive watch winders for winding automatic watches. You can think of popular brands such as Swiss Kubik, Benson, Heisse & Söhne and Paul Design. If you have a Breitling, IWC, Omega, Tag Heuer, Seiko or Davosa watch, you can easily and safely wind it in a watch winder of the above brands. A good watch winder has been developed so that they provide any automatic watch with energy without any problems, regardless of brand or model of the watch. The idea is simple, because the rotation of the watch moves the rotor of the timepiece so that the spring inside the timepiece tensions. When the spring then relaxes, the watch starts to run. A watch winder mimics the wearing of a watch, as it were. This makes the use of a watch winder the purest form of winding a watch.

How do you recognize a good watch winder for 2 watches?

If you don't know much about watch winders and how they work, choosing a good watch winder can be quite difficult. There is a lot of choice and in different price ranges. In addition, there are various brands with their own technology, quality and price level. How do you know what to choose best for winding your automatic watches?

In our opinion, if you want to buy a watch winder, you should carefully consider the following aspects. The brand in question is of course important. There is a lot of choice from various brands and there are large differences in quality and finish. We recommend that you always use a watch winder from buy a good brand known for its good quality and good reputation. You do not want to place an automatic watch in a moderate-quality watch winder. Not only can this be bad for your watch, but this type of watch winders often do not have a long life, so that cheap can become expensive in the long run. It is better to spend a little more money on a watch winder that you can enjoy for years to come. This is also much safer for your automatic watches. The Dutch brand Benson proves that a good watch winder really does not have to be expensive with its new Compact Single, Compact Double and Compact Triple watch winders. These series start from 199.00 euros and offer everything you need to wind an automatic watch.

Our advice is to never buy a watch winder with a Chinese motor that is widely offered on Amazon, Ebay and Aliexpress platforms. This type of watch winders do not offer you the quality and durability for a good energy supply of automatic watches. These watch winders are often produced in large quantities in Asia and sold to companies that put a chic brand name on them. This is to mislead the consumer. The cheaper price seems interesting, but often results in disappointment if the watch winder breaks quickly or damage occurs to the watch.

Another important point that we want to mention is the functionality of the watch winder. A good watch winder must be able to rotate clockwise, counter-clockwise and alternately to provide all automatic watches with energy. Various watch winders have a fixed number of revolutions that they turn per day. You cannot change this. However, almost all watch winders on our website have the function to set the number of revolutions per day (TPD: turns per day). This gives you the opportunity to set the direction of rotation and the TPD to the exact needs of the automatic watch. An automatic watch that has to be wound clockwise at 1200 TPD will not receive any energy when the watch winder is set to 800 TPD counter-clockwise. You can set a good watch winder for 2 watches yourself in terms of rotation direction and TPD. This gives you all the options to wind any automatic watch, regardless of brand or model, quickly and safely. Whether you have a Rolex, Patek, IWC or Seiko watch is not important, the watch winder is suitable for winding any watch.

The last aspect that is important when purchasing a watch winder is the motor. The motor is the heart of the watch winder. Most watch winders are equipped with a Chinese, Japanese, German or Swiss motor. Do not be tempted to choose a watch winder with a Chinese motor. This type of motors is often not of good quality and you have a great risk that the watch winder will break or make a lot of noise when winding. Japanese motors, most commonly used in watch winders, form a good basis. These Japanese have an excellent price/quality and are durable. In addition, they are relatively cheap to replace in the event of a defect. This is different if you choose a watch winder with German or Swiss motors, which are often considerably more expensive to replace.

Watch winder brands such as Benson Watchwinders and Boda Concept use Japanese motors. If you want something more luxurious, you will end up with a German or Swiss motor. German and Swiss motors are of slightly better quality than Japanese motors and have a slightly lower sound level, which makes them slightly more pleasant to use. This does have a direct influence on the price of a watch winder that has German or Swiss motors. These motors are more expensive, which means that the watch winders that use this type of motors are also more expensive. Good examples of watch winder brands that use German and Swiss motors are Chronovision and Swiss Kubik. The American high-end watch winder brand Orbita also uses Swiss motors. Recently Benson also has a series of watch winders with Swiss motors. These new Bensen Swiss Series watch winders were presented at the beginning of this year and are an excellent choice when you are looking for a high-end watch winder.

Where can you buy a good watch winder for 2 watches?

If you include the above aspects in your choice for a watch winder, then nothing can actually go wrong. The choice then depends on your preference in terms of design, the amount you want to spend and the capacity (how many watches you can wind in the watch winder) of the model. You can also look at extra nice features that a watch winder offers. For example LED lighting, battery function, fingerprint technology or a remote control. This extra functionality does not necessarily wind up the automatic watch better, but it is handy and fun!

When you are going to buy a good watch winder for 2 watches, we recommend that you always go to an official dealer. An official dealer works directly with the relevant watch winder brand and offers knowledge and service. You will receive good advice, an original product, an interesting price and also service if you need it. This is sometimes missing from sellers who have no experience with the sale of watch winders.
