A watch winder is a device used to keep an automatic watch running when not worn. Automatic watches operate on the principle of winding themselves using a moving weight inside the watch. The weight swings or rotates while the watch is worn and turns the winding mechanism inside the watch. If the watch is not worn, then it no longer receives power and will stop running. While virtually all automatic watches can be manually wound, this is not always convenient. Watch winders are totally useless with battery-operated quartz or hand-wound watches, they will work with automatic (self-winding) watches only.
DO I NEED A WATCH WINDER?
Whether if you own just a single watch or a large collection, a winder will always be useful to constantly keep your precious timepieces on time when you don't wear them. They will always be ready to wear whenever you need them. It will also keep the day, date or other complex mechanical functions working properly, so there will be no need to constantly reset your watch when you decide to wear it. Depending of which watch model you use, a winder will also be time-saving as some watches take time to manually reset, especially the date function. It also serves as a watch stand.
