Automatic winders for handwound watches are notoriously tricky and complex to design and make, and so are rare in the market. If you are looking for one, you will be happy to know that luxury watch winder maker Buben & Zorweg have just released their Time Mover Handwound, a specially designed automatic watch winder for handwound watches.

Interested in a convenient way to store your watches that is also incredibly secure? If so you’ll want to be familiar with the German luxury safe manufacture Stockinger which has been producing beautifully designed private safes since 1978.

You are a man of taste and means. Where do you keep your stuff? Luxury consumers often embark on an ‘acquisitional journey,’ starting with simple-to-desire items such as expensive clothes and cars, to more exclusive items such as boutique shoes and watches. Given that there is a market for every taste and every need, this path to possessions fortunately (unfortunately) never ends. Don’t you feel better knowing that there is someone, somewhere thinking about producing that next thing you don’t even know you need until they help you discover it? The world just keeps offering cool stuff to consume.
While there is nothing radically different or innovative about this watch winder, it represents an interesting flavor as part of Orbita’s Avanti watch winder collection. Watch winders do come in a lot of varieties, but consumers still have a tiny choice of decent brands compared to those who make watches.

As useful as they are, people still don’t get super excited about watch winders. Well, perhaps most watch winders.

A fun and stimulating example is the Hublot Safe produced by watch winder and […]

An interesting fact that I’ve come to learn is that many people (even quite a few watch loving people) have no idea what a watch winder is. It is one of those things that you can show people, in action, and they still don’t know what it is. I’ve actually had people come to my […]
