  • Your guide to watch winders and their usages

    Posted on November 14, 2011 by SwissTGallery


    In this competitive world of today, there is no place for delay. The entire career of a person is decided in matter of seconds and it takes no effort to lose all that you have amassed all your life. Owning a watch is thus one of the most basic requisites today and there is no human who would deny the absolute necessity of having one. A watch winder is a very important add on if you own a watch that is not automated. Read along to get an insight on the various aspects of a single watch winder and the necessity of the dual watch winder.


    Taking of its mechanical making, the watch winder is a simple device that works on the principle of motor and rotator. These types of watches that need a self-winding or automatic watch winder to keep running are called self-winding watches. The common watches of today contain quartz that provides the required kinetic energy to wind the tiny gears and weights that form the internal make-up of the watches. Older watches and exotic collectibles still work on the gravitational pull mechanism and depend on either the user to wind it manually after a certain specific period or the use of a single watch winder to do the same. The electrical motor in an automatic watch winder winds the gear system on its own even when you do not wear the watch for prolonged periods.


    A dual watch winder works exactly the same way as the singular watch winder with the only difference being the number of watches you can regulate with it at the same time. As the name suggests, the dual watch winder is capable of winding two watches and hence is more effective.


    There are several advantages of using winders as they save time and effort spent in winding the watches manually. In addition, they increase the mechanical efficiency and overall longevity of the watches.

  • All should know about watch winders

    Time and tide wait for none. The practical implication of this old English proverb comes blazing to us even today when lives are made or ruined in matter of seconds. In a world where a minute late is an opportunity lost, there is a high value for people who make it on time. Watches become one of the most important, almost indispensible accessories worn by men and women today. A watch winder is thus an important device that simplifies our lives substantially.


    First and foremost, before talking further about the various types of winders like automatic watch winder or the single watch winder, it is best to know the mechanism used in a watch winder.

    Just the way we recharge ourselves before starting the day by taking a breakfast, the function of a watch winder is to recharge the watch. Unlike the quartz, watches that we find nowadays, self or automatic non-quartz watches need some mechanism to keep them working. An automatic watch winder does just the same in models that do not have quartz in their composition. Mechanically, a winder consists of a motor and a rotator on a platform that winds the watch automatically and keeps it in working condition when not in use. Most of the single watch winders or for that matter any watch winder has three major benefits. It not only saves a lot of time but also gives mental satisfaction that no matter how many days you do not wear it, the watch would still continue working. It enhances the longevity of the watch and most importantly prevents the unnecessary wear and tear caused due to winding it manually, every day.


    One of the most interesting inventions in this field is a dual watch winder. Where the single winder is suited to wind one watch, this dual winder can be used to keep in shape two watches at the same time!
