    Posted on July 16, 2009 by SwissTGallery

  • What is a Watch Winder?

    Posted on July 8, 2009 by SwissTGallery

    For those of us who own expensive, collectible, or otherwise precious watches it is wise to invest in a wooden watch winder. A watch winder will ensure that your time piece is kept accurate when you are not wearing it, extend the life of your watch by keeping everything in motion and lubricated, and also keep it safe from dust when it is not being worn.

  • Wolf Designs: The History of an Automatic Watch Winder Company

    Posted on June 18, 2009 by SwissTGallery

    In fact, the Watch Winder 2.0 was designed to simulate wearing a watch, so your watches will be wound in the best way possible. Some cheaper watch winders run all the time, but that’s certainly not good for your collectibles.

  • Watch Winders for Women

    Posted on April 17, 2009 by SwissTGallery

    Many people think that collecting watches is a man’s hobby, and for the most part, they would be correct.  More men collect wrist watches than women, but that doesn’t mean there are no women who are into the hobby.  In fact, there are.  Some women, though, don’t actively collect watches, but they do own a watch that needs winding.  For these women, there are some specially made watch winders that look a bit more feminine.

    Serious female wrist watch collectors will, of course, want the more professional, serious looking watch winders.  They will probably need the larger watch winders, too, which are usually only made in one style.  These smaller, more feminine watch winders often only hold one or two watches since they’re aimed at the amateur who isn’t looking to expand her collection.

    What makes these watch winders look more feminine?  Well, they’re generally available in colors, for one.  They’re not just the standard wooden watch winders.  Instead, they’re often covered in fabric.  This fabric can be anywhere from white, black, or brown to brighter colors like red, blue, and even pink.  Some also look softer—they’re not as boxy or have as many edges.

    Just because these watch winders don’t look the same as standard watch winders doesn’t mean they don’t work as well.  These watch winders work just as well as any other watch winder you’ll find.  They’re guaranteed to keep your own watches wound up or protect those precious family heirloom watches that you want to keep in perfect condition.

  • Features of an Automatic Watch Winder

    Posted on March 29, 2009 by SwissTGallery

    When it comes to purchasing an automatic watch winder, there are several things you need to pay attention to. The size of the watch winder, while important, is not the only factor in deciding which one to purchase. There are other things you should take into consideration.

    The first is the motor. Many watch winders feature a loud motor that you can hear whenever you're in the room. This can be especially disruptive if you keep your watch collection in your home office or library. The constant noise can be enough to drive you crazy. These loud motors are a sign of an inefficient, cheaply built watch winder. If you're OK with this loud noise, then you can save a bit of money and buy a cheap winder. However, if you're a true collector, you want a watch winder that is well-built, and that includes a quiet motor. This will mean paying a bit more, of course, but the silence may be well worth it.

    Some watch winder motors also only move in one direction. This means the motion is somewhat repetitive, and this repetitive motion can actually cause extra wear on a watch's winding mechanism. If you'll be constantly keeping a watch in the winder (which you shouldn't do-you should wear a watch at least once a week), you'll want a watch winder that includes a variable direction motor.

    You may also want to purchase a watch winder with a timer. This allows you to set the watch winder to only operate for an hour or so, then stop for several hours. This insures that your watches will not be over-wound. You can also purchase watch winders that run off of alternative power sources-some can run on both batteries and on AC power. Keep all of these features in mind when you're looking to purchase a watch winder and you won't be disappointed.
