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.
