What is a Watch Winder?


What is a Watch Winder?

A watch winder is a device used to keep 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. So, fairly obviously, if the watch is not worn, then it no longer receives power this way and will run down. While virtually all automatic watches can be manually wound, this is not always convenient. So the concept of an automatic watch winder was born.

A winder cannot over wind an automatic watch, since all automatic watches have s special mainspring that will never come to the end of the spring. Most winders are on some sort of a timer, so they will operate for a few minutes, then [rest" for a bit, then start their motion again. There is no need to keep the watch in motion 24 hours.

Winders are totally useless with battery-operated quartz watches, but they will work with Seiko Kinetic, and similar movements. These automatic/quartz hybrids use the same weight/rotor principal to generate electric power to run a quartz movement.

Do I need a watch winder?

If you own more than one automatic watch, then a winder might be a good idea for you. One of the biggest benefits of a winder is it will keep your watch on time and ready to wear whenever you need it. It will also keep the day/date function working properly, so there will be no need to constantly reset your watch when you decide to wear it.

Can a Winder hurt my watch?

I really don`t think that keeping your watch on a winder can harm your watch. Most watches are quite durable and were designed to run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. So keeping it on a winder is no different than wearing it everyday. Since your watch on a winder is staying clean and dry, I can`t see any problem with using a winder for any good quality automatic watch.

There is no significant evidence that a good watch winder will either save or harm your watch.
