One of the most common questions among watch collectors and enthusiasts is whether or not they need a watch winder — and for the folks at WOLF, the answer is simple: You don’t need a watch winder, you need a WOLF. This five generation family run brand has been crafting the spaces where legacies live for over 185 years. Founded in 1834 by German silversmith Philip Wolf as a brand that originally produced jewelry boxes and high-quality cases to protect valuables, WOLF is now arguably most famous for its world-class watch winders. To this day, finely crafted jewelry storage solutions remain a core component of WOLF’s overall offerings, but the brand has expanded its range of products and now designs travel cases, watch boxes, leather goods, and even customizable high-security safes that can include multiple built-in watch winder slots to keep all of your most valuable timepieces fully wound and protected until you ready to wear them.
The primary convenience of wearing an automatic winding watch is that it will stay running for as long as it remains in motion on your wrist, without needing to be manually wound each day. However, once you remove your timepiece, most self-winding mechanical watches will come to a complete stop within just a couple of days, and they will then need to be restarted and reset before you can wear them again unless you use a watch winder. When properly configured, a watch winder will keep your automatic timepiece fully wound and running for as long as you need during the days that you aren’t wearing it, regardless of whether that is just over the weekend, or for extended periods of time in order to have a treasured heirloom piece always ready to wear for special occasions.
Additionally, for watches with complex multifunction calendar mechanisms, using a watch winder will eliminate the lengthy and tedious process of having to manually reset each of their different displays. In addition to the convenience factor this provides, using a watch winder can also reduce the amount of wear and tear that you put on the various calendar adjustment components within the movement since you will not need to be operating them every single time that you want to wear your watch. Similarly, the perpetual calendar is one of the most iconic and technologically impressive complications from the world of high-end watchmaking due to its remarkable ability to keep track of the different numbers of days in each month and even compensate for leap years. However, you can really only take full advantage of the functionality provided by a perpetual calendar when you don’t have to restart it and reset it each time that you want to wear it, and in order to enjoy that level of “set it and forget it” convenience, you are going to want to use a watch winder, specifically a WOLF.
The benefits of using a watch winder are obvious, but it’s important to note that not all winders are created equal. Although nearly all watch winders operate by rotating your timepiece in order to allow its internal automatic winding mechanism to engage and add tension to the mainspring, the way that they go about achieving this task can be substantially different between seemingly similar products, as can the adjustability and overall functionality offered by different options. Additionally, beyond the materials themselves and the overall aesthetic design, how a winder holds your watch and keeps it securely mounted within its housing can differ, and within all of these different categories, there is no better option than WOLF.
Handmade and precise, just like the high-end mechanical timepieces that reside within them, WOLF watch winders are crafted from premium materials with classic and tasteful designs that can effortlessly integrate into your home or office space. Additionally, far beyond just looking good and being expertly crafted to the highest possible standards, WOLF winders also offer industry-leading patented technology that allows them to be custom-tailored to work with your specific timepiece and cater to its unique dimensions and winding requirements.
Each automatic winding watch movement has a specific number of rotations per day that it requires in order to keep itself optimally wound, and only WOLF winders truly count the number of rotations that a timepiece receives throughout the day. Rather than simply using a timer to calculate an approximate number of rotations based on a preset value for average speed, WOLF’s patented Turns Per Day technology counts the actual number of rotations for maximum precision and adjustability. Only found on WOLF winders, this exclusive Turns Per Day technology allows you to select both the direction of rotation and the specific number of turns that it will receive each day. Plus, since WOLF winders always count the actual number of rotations, you can rest assured that your watch is receiving precisely that many turns each day, guaranteeing minimal mechanical wear and maximum timekeeping performance.
In addition to giving you full control over the number of rotations with its patented Turns Per Day technology, WOLF also takes into serious consideration how your watch is held within the structure of the winder itself. All WOLF winders feature the brand’s innovative Lock-In Dynamic Cuff design to keep your watches securely mounted within the housing of the winder. WOLF’s patent-pending technology enables a single cuff to take on three different sizes, allowing it to fit virtually any watch, regardless of your wrist size. Additionally, WOLF’s Lock-In Dynamic Cuff securely clips into the structure of the winder and locks into place to ensure that your timepiece stays safe while it goes about completing its daily rotations.
Lastly, only WOLF winders feature true Return To Start technology, which constantly tracks the positioning of your watch as it rotates in a 360-degree motion and then returns your timepiece to the exact same position that it started once each winding cycle is complete. Rather than looking up and finding out that your watch is now awkwardly displayed sideways or upside down within the winder, WOLF’s exclusive Return To Start technology guarantees that once you clip your timepiece into the winder housing using the brand’s Lock-In Dynamic Cuff, it will always return to that exact same position at the end of each winding cycle, giving you full control over your favorite watches.
Luxury timepieces are handcrafted precision instruments, and it only makes sense that your watch winder is, too. Universally regarded as the gold standard in watch winders, WOLF produces everything from simple single-slot tabletop winders to entire freestanding cabinets that can hold dozens of your favorite watches. Regardless of whether you own just one timepiece or have a vast collection of them, a watch winder is the ideal way to keep your automatic timepieces set, running, and always ready to go. At the end of the day, it only makes sense for you to use one precision instrument to care for another, and you don’t just need a watch winder, you need a WOLF.
