There is a good chance that you got a new watch this holiday season (at least I hope you did). Maybe a loved one got you that new timepiece, or you broke down and gifted yourself (likely the best idea). We often get really excited about our new watches, but with the new addition to our collection, we find ourselves without a place to put it, and more importantly a way to conveniently wind that new automatic watch.
Looks like you need to get yourself a new watch winder. The handiest way to keep your automatic watches ready for action when you want to wear them. I used sit there and wind a bunch of automatic watches manually each day. It was a pain. If you don’t wear your automatic mechanical watch for a day or two it stops. Then you need to reset it when you wear it. If you only have one watch, this isn’t a problem – but as your collection grows… well you can see where these useful accessories come in quite handy. Good watch winders aren’t cheap. Sure you can get Chinese made watch winders for $50 – $100 – but you’ll have to get a new one each several months. Those ones just don’t last. Plus, they are often too plasticy looking and not at all suitable for your new luxury love.
Orbita is the premiere American maker of watch winders. By watch lovers, for watch lovers – they do a great job of making items that play nice with our automatic watches, when we don’t.
