Watch winder, do I need one?

Posted on 10 November 2019 at 1:53 PM

Automatic watches have a movement that must be supplied with energy to keep it running. With a quartz watch, a battery provides this energy. If the battery is empty, you can exchange it for a new battery. With an automatic watch, the watch must stay in motion to gain energy. For example, by wearing the watch or manually winding by turning the crown. Normally there is no battery in an automatic watch. If you do not wear an automatic watch, for example because you are wearing another watch or you are on vacation, how does the watch obtain energy through movement? The answer is a watch winder. The word watch winder actually already indicates what it is. A watch winder is a device that winds one or more automatic watches. Most watch winders do this through rotation of the watch. The watch is placed on a watch holder and placed in the watch winder, after which the watch winder starts turning. There is also a watch winder brand, Orbita from the United States, that winds watches by gently shaking the automatic watches.

Do you necessarily need a watch winder? One will say no, the other will say yes. We are convinced that a watch winder is the best watch accessory for automatic watches. Not only do the automatic watches continue to be supplied with energy and therefore ready to wear, the rotating watches in a beautiful watch winder are also a beautiful sight. Another advantage is that the distribution of the oil within the automatic movement remains neat and tidy. Think of a car, if you do not start it regularly and drive, certain parts will protest sooner or later.

In addition to the above advantages, watch winders for multiple watches often also offer extra storage options. This allows you to wind multiple automatic watches but also store them together, together with other (quartz) watches and jewelry, for example.

The watch winder as a watch accessory is becoming increasingly popular. There are several high-quality watch winder brands that are recommended by well-known watch brands. Almost every watch collector has a watch winder given the above advantages. Especially if you have 2 or more automatic watches, a watch winder is very useful. In addition, it also provides nice conversations with friends and family members who have never heard of this watch accessory but find the revolving watches very interesting.

Back to the question "do you need a watch winder?". A watch winder is not really necessary, but a watch winder has so many advantages that the real watch collector and fan always use a watch winder. As said, it is the most interesting and functional accessory for automatic watches. It is important that you always choose a good quality watch winder. Not sure what you need exactly?

For watch lovers or collectors who are charmed by a special watch with a story, Zeppelin offers a wide choice. Zeppelin watches are made in Germany. The name of the brand refers to the designer Ferdinand Graff von Zeppelin of the aviation ship of the same name with a special history. The first majestic Zeppelin was built in 1900, the Zeppelin LZ1. In the years 1900-1938, another 100 of these legendary airships were built, in 27 different series. The Zeppelin has left an indelible impression and was very popular during WWI. With the Zeppelin watches the company Point-tec manages to capture a bit of nostalgia in a beautiful collection.

The collection of Zeppelin watches consists of both quartz and automatic and mechanical watches, so whatever type of watch you prefer, Zeppelin offers enough choice. The appearance of the Zeppelin watches can be called classic and stylish. The strong combination of a watch with a nostalgic character which at the same time has advanced technology, makes a Zeppelin watch a timeless piece. The watches from Zeppelin are also very affordable and therefore accessible to a wide audience.

Zeppelin 7672 watch

Zeppelin has various series in its collection and each series has its own story. For example, the "100 years Zeppelin" and the "Princess of the Sky" series are both designed to honor the 100th anniversary of the Zeppelin. The watches in the "100 years Zeppelin" series are characterized by the use of dome-shaped dials and crystal glass. With the beautiful ladies watches from the "Princess of the Sky" series, the exceptionally designed dials stand out. With this series they have tried to get back the feeling of glamor from the 1920s. A nice detail is that the Princess of the sky watches can not only be worn as a wrist watch, but also around the neck.

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.
