Watch Winders - The Ideal Gift for Timepiece Collectors

Posted on November 3, 2008 by SwissTGallery There have been 0 comments

Many people collect fine watches. A great gift for them would be a watch winder in which they can display their collection.

A watch winder is intended to store automatic watches. These watches use the natural motions of the wrist in order to stay wound. However, if they are not worn, these watches wind down within a few days. All their settings – day, date, time etc. – must then be reset.

In order to prevent this, automatic watches should be stored in a watch winder. These are special cases with specific storage for each watch. A motor is used to rotate each watch to keep it wound.

Watch winders are also conversation pieces. It is fascinating to look at a watch winder rotating multiple watches, keeping them each in working order. A watch winder is also an excellent choice for displaying multiple fine timepieces. There are models that display single watches but also, two, four, six, eight and even 12 or 24 watches. These watch winders are the mark of a true collector.

Look for a high-quality watch winder designed to protect its wares. It should have a well-lined interior designed to display the watch to its best advantage. The exterior should have a protective coating designed to prevent dents and nicks. The winder motor should operate at intervals to keep the watches wound but not over-wound.

People who have become successful enough to have a collection of fine watches would enjoy having a place in which to display them all. Why not consider a gift of a high-quality watch winder?
