Benefits of Owning a Watch Winder

At first glance, a watch winder appears to be the ultimate non-essential item — something for people with lots of money to burn. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you, or somebody you know, have invested in fine or vintage watches, a watch winder is an extremely practical purchase. A watch winder will:

  • Keep your watch running – An automatic watch that keeps running will always display the current time and date, allowing the watch owner to dress and go without having to deal with a watch that has stopped.
  • Extend the life of your watch – Automatic watches should receive maintenance every one to three years. However, maintenance alone will not prevent wear and tear on the gears. Continuously running watches will self-lubricate, extending their lives. A well-made automatic watch should last 150 years when kept wound, and will become a family heirloom when treated properly.
  • Save you money – Keeping your watches wound saves on repairs, and, in the case of parts becoming outdated, saves on purchasing replacement watches. A watch winder is a sound investment.
  • Protect your investment – watch winders store valuable time pieces safely because watch bands wrap securely and tightly around a soft pillow-cuff inside the winder. Some winders feature a storage drawer with pillowed compartments. These prevent the damage which often results from watches jostling against other objects, prevents unnecessary loss, and protects your watch.
