Just like luxury watches, watch winders are not only a handy accessory for many watch enthusiasts, but also a kind of status symbol. There are watch winders available with the most luxurious designs, made of the most beautiful materials. In addition, there are also watch winders that are particularly effective and functional, but are simpler in terms of design. Watch winders are also available in different price ranges. For example, within the watch industry we find many different models for people with different preferences.
But for which type of watch is the watch winder actually suitable? And what does a watch winder do? We are happy to answer that in this article.
A watch winder is specifically suitable for automatic watches. There are watches with different types of timepieces. First of all, we have the quartz watch. This type of watch functions with the help of a battery. A mechanical watch, however, works completely differently. This is because it is equipped with a movement that has to be wound by hand. The watch winder is not suitable for quartz or mechanical watches. A watch winder is also not suitable for watches with the Seiko Kinetic movements. This type of watch is equipped with a built-in battery and therefore has a completely different timepiece than an automatic watch.
An automatic watch is really in a class of its own in that respect. This is because its energy needs are met by means of the right movement. The automatic watch can therefore be called a special type of watch. You provide your automatic watch with energy without even realizing it, through the natural movements of the wrist. The automatic movement is therefore a true piece of craftsmanship and extremely fascinating for many lovers of luxury watches. The problem with an automatic watch is that you run the risk of downtime when you're not wearing the watch. After all, the watch will not be provided with movement and will therefore not be wound up. There are various risks associated with the standstill of automatic watches. First, it can cause time inaccuracies that prevent your watch from displaying the time and date correctly. Second, standing still means having to reset your watch or watches over and over again. As a lover of beautiful watches, you naturally want your watches to be ready for use at all times. The watch winder has been developed to ensure this.
A good watch winder provides every brand or type of automatic watch with the movement it needs. This is generally done through rotation, but in some cases also in other ways, such as gently shaking the watch. By using a good watch winder, you can be sure that your automatic watch is always ready to wear, even if you haven't worn it for a while. In addition, a watch winder is also a beautiful and safe storage place for your watch or watches. If you own a collection of automatic watches, a watch winder with a luxurious look also offers a nice opportunity to exhibit your watches. Finally, the oil in an automatic watch is optimally distributed by the movements of the watch winder, which guarantees the life of your automatic watch. In summary, a good quality watch winder is absolutely essential if you own one or more automatic watches.
Watch winders are available in all shapes and sizes. There is a big difference in quality, price and design. Of course it is important to opt for quality when you want to purchase a watch winder. After all, you want the best care for your automatic watches. However, the best does not always mean the most expensive. There are several beautiful brands that offer top quality at an attractive price. In addition, there are of course also the extremely luxurious watch winders with a higher price tag. In this article we would like to introduce you to a number of top quality watch winders with a diverse capacity and variation in terms of appearance, use of materials and extras.
The first watch winder that we would like to take a closer look at comes from the Swiss brand Swiss Kubik. Switzerland is of course known as the watch country pur sang in the field of luxury watches. Switzerland also has excellent quality to offer in the field of the watch winder, which is known worldwide.
