Watch winders are available in various quality and price ranges. In this blog we regularly take a look at a special brand, about which we would like to tell you more. After all, it is nice to know more about a watch winder brand, its history and what it stands for. It also helps to make a better choice when you are looking for a good watch winder.

Orbita is a special brand in the luxury watch winder segment. This brand is from the United States. Orbita was founded by Chuck Agnoff in 1996 in Wilmington, North Carolina. The professionals at Orbita watch winders have set themselves the task of learning everything there is to know about automatic watches, after which the company went looking for the mildest way to wind these watches. The corporate philosophy of the progressive brand is: "creating products with lasting value and exceptional attention to detail, as well as products that people like to use."

Why do you need a watch winder?

Posted on 22 June 2019 at 12:06 PM

A watch collection of automatic watches is not complete without a watch winder. Every automatic watch needs movement to be supplied with energy. When an automatic watch comes to a standstill, this can have negative consequences for the watch. An example of this is an inaccuracy in time and date display. But the oil is also not properly distributed by movement during a longer standstill. As a watch lover, this is of course not what you want. We often make the comparison with a car. If you put a car in a garage for a long time, it will cause problems when you want to drive. If you drive and maintain the car well, you can enjoy it for years. In a sense, this also applies to automatic watches.

Normally the movement of the wrist ensures that an automatic watch keeps running. But what if you don't wear your watch? Or if you have an entire collection that you cannot logically wear at the same time? Then a watch winder is the desired accessory! A good watch winder ensures that the watch is wound correctly. As mentioned earlier, this also ensures that the oil supply remains optimal and that the watch is protected against wear and damage. With a watch winder you are also immediately provided with a safe storage place for your automatic watch(es). Many watch winders also have a storage function for other jewelry and watches.

A watch winder also offers the possibility to present your watch collection in a beautiful and luxurious way. With all the original, luxury and unique watch winders that are available on the market, there is always one that fits perfectly with your collection and interior. Because a watch winder is not only an indispensable accessory in terms of functionality, it is also a valuable aesthetic addition to your collection! A watch winder that shines beautiful LED light on the revolving watches is already a spectacular sight in itself.

Watch winders are available in various capacities. You can go for a watch winder with space for a single watch, two watches, four or six watches, but watch winders are also available for enthusiasts with a large collection. Brands such as Benson and Orbita offer watch winders for 12, 16 or even 32 automatic watches.

Different watch winders are designed in such a way that winding your watches is really worth watching. There are even those whose designs are inspired by different forms of art or which have been designed in consultation with artists, such as watch winders from Luwima and Kunstwinder as brands. There are also several original ways of winding that you as a watch lover will certainly be charmed by! Bernard Favre is a good example of this. This Swiss brand produces watch winders in which the watch is wound in a three-dimensional movement. Unique and a beautiful sight!

You buy a watch winder when you want the best for your automatic watch(es). The device is not only functional in terms of excitement, it is also aesthetically a beautiful accessory that stands out and always is good for a topic of conversation.

Military watches

Posted on 12 June 2019 at 5:01 PM

Military watches have always appealed to a large group of watch lovers. A military watch must of course meet very high requirements. A professional within the army, but also police agents and firefighters must of course always be able to rely on his or her watch. The watch is a part of their equipment that is essential. This also applies to a pilot and therefore to pilot watches. A military watch must therefore be able to take a beating and therefore be strong and solid. It must of course also be reliable in terms of time observation. In addition to these characteristics, there are several others that can be used as a plus when the watch is used in extreme situations. It can literally mean the difference between life and death.

The use of strong materials is of course a must. Another characteristic that is of great importance for a soldier is good readability. Not only during the day but also in the dark. Superluminova that lights up in the dark ensures this. This means that every professional is guaranteed at all times, wherever you are, to see the exact time. Also consider strong glass so that it does not crack or damage quickly in extreme situations. Sapphire glass is pre-eminently an extremely strong glass that is often used.

There are various watch brands that produce military watches and pilot watches. A few examples of Swiss made brands are Fortis, Glycine, Damasko and Davosa. Fortis even has a series in the collection that has been developed in collaboration with Russian Cosmonauts and that are actually standard equipment for these professionals. These watches must of course be able to be exposed to extreme conditions.

There are watch brands whose pilot watches played a major role in WWI and WWII. An example of a brand that was one of the few allowed to produce watches for the German army at the time was Laco. This brand even achieved a production increase during WWII, because the German army had great faith in Laco's watches. Two other brands are Iron Annie and Junkers, known for its aircraft that played a major role during WWII. With a story behind a certain watch brand, the various military and pilot watches often house a bit of history and nostalgia.

In addition to extremely high quality and durability, military watches are often characterized by a robust appearance and rubber or leather watch bands. For every soldier, professional or true lover of quality watches, a military watch is a valuable addition.

Junkers Bauhaus 6060-5 watch

Posted on 31 May 2019 at 9:53 AM

We are always looking for great watch brands and watch models that stand out, in terms of price and quality, but also design. There are few watches that offer as much as the Junkers Bauhaus 6060-5 watch. This watch has an automatic movement from Miyota, a power reserve function, very thin watch case and a smooth leather strap. This model has been in the Junkers collection for several years and is one of the most popular models. Every time we sell this watch, it puts a smile on our faces; another customer who will be extremely happy and will wear a fantastic watch.

Junkers is a German watch brand that has primarily made a name for itself with the production of aircraft, unique through the use of corrugated metal plates. After the success of the Junkers planes, which also played a major role in WWI and WWII, Junkers concentrated on another branch of sport. The production of Junkers watches with a simple and minimalist design, still refer to the legendary German aircraft industry today. A nice fact is that Junkers has also set various records with her aircrafts.

Junkers Bauhaus 6060-5 watch

At the time, Junkers was inspired by the modern and expressionist Bauhaus art movement when designing the planes but later also when looking at the watch designs. This is how the Junkers Bauhaus watch collection was born. The Junkers Bauhaus 6060-5 watch is one of the special watches from this collection. The watch is equipped with a Japanese automatic movement from Miyota with power reserve and extra hour display. Among other things, the thin watch case, beautiful beige color dial and simple look of the watch are characteristic of the Bauhaus series. Special is also the see-through bottom with a view of the movement, for the true watch lover. Fine materials such as stainless steel, plexiglas and handmade leather have been used. The watch is available with beige and black dial (Junkers Bauhaus 6060-2). In addition, you can choose a brown leather strap, a black leather strap or a stainless steel Milanese strap.

Every Junkers Bauhaus 6060-5 watch comes in a nice watch box with manual and a 2-year warranty. BensonTrade has been an official dealer of Junkers watches for more than 10 years.
