The maintenance of a watch winder

Posted on 23 December 2020 at 4:58 PM

You have one or more automatic watches and you use a watch winder that ensures that the automatic watches do not come to a standstill. This is not only time consuming and annoying but also disadvantageous for the watches. You have to open the crown to reset the time and date. The crown is one of the most vulnerable parts of a watch. The watch winder is therefore an ideal accessory for winding automatic watches.

For watch maintenance, you can go to a jeweler or directly to the watch brand itself. Regular maintenance is recommended, especially for automatic and mechanical watches. But how do you maintain a watch winder? A watch winder has various mechanical parts, such as the motor and gearbox. A good watch winder is often not cheap either and it is best to your expensive items in good condition. 

Do watch winders also need maintenance? If so, for which parts? And where can you go? In this blog we will discuss how you can best maintain a watch winder.

Do watch winders also need maintenance?

Like almost all mechanical products, watch winders also require maintenance. The motors and gearboxes contain various moving parts that must work together in harmony. Proper adjustment of the motor in relation to the gearbox is very important. In addition, moving parts that touch each other, such as the gears of the gearbox, can wear out. This can cause an motor or gearbox to rotate irregularly or even produce a lot of noise. Especially when you have the watch winder in a room where you actually do not want to hear it or hardly want to hear it, that is annoying. For example, you can think of a watch winder in the bedroom or at the office if you want to work quietly.

Another important part is the watch holder. The watch holder is intended to attach the automatic watch, after which you place it in the watch winder. The watch holder is therefore a part that you often use and is subject to wear and tear. At some point you may need to replace a watch holder.

What types of maintenance are there?

In terms of maintenance, there are various options and tips. You can think of adjusting motors and gearbox when they no longer rotate properly or make a lot of noise. Sometimes replacement is even necessary. You will then have to have a new motor and gearbox installed.

To preserve the watch winder, it is important that you clean the case every now and then with a dry cloth or a cloth that is slightly wet. Make sure that any moisture cannot reach the electronics of the watch winder. For long enjoyment of the watch winder, keep it free of grease, dust and condensation.

Another tip is to check the watch holders regularly. Do they still click properly in the watch winder, are they still flexible so that you can put any watch on it and are they clean? You have them in your hands almost every day.

The most important tip for use is never to place or remove a watch in the watch winder while it is spinning. This causes stress for the motors and gearbox, which can cause them to malfunction or produce more noise. Always stop the specific rotor before inserting or removing a watch. This is important for the preservation of your watch winder.

Where can you go for maintenance?

You can do various aspects of maintaining your watch winder yourself. As mentioned, regularly checking the watch winder and keeping it clean is already very important. If technical maintenance is nevertheless required, you cannot escape calling in a specialist. It is best to approach the official dealer of the watch winder brand where you bought it. You can also approach the brand yourself so that it can refer you to an official dealer or a special service partner.

Do not tinker with a watch winder yourself. It is and will remain an electronic device and if you tinker with it, this can involve certain risks. Opt for professional maintenance and/or replacement so that you are assured of proper operation and warranty on the new parts. A watch winder is not cheap, so you want to enjoy it for as long as possible!

What are the benefits of maintaining a watch winder?

As with an automatic watch, it is advisable to maintain a watch winder. This means you can enjoy the watch winder for a longer time. The benefits are many. A good watch winder ensures the optimal energy supply of automatic watches. If the watch winder is not properly maintained, this can have a direct effect on the winding of the automatic watches. If the watch winder does not rotate properly, the watches will not receive any energy. If a watch winder makes a lot of noise, it means that something is wrong somewhere. In addition, a watch winder that makes a lot of noise is disturbing, especially in your bedroom or office.

A watch winder that you maintain properly can last for years. This saves you money for a new watch winder. Money that you would rather spend on beautiful automatic watches or other things. Our advice is therefore: buy a good watch winder and maintain it properly.

Would you like advice on the maintenance of a watch winder? Or do you have a watch winder that is defective? We are happy to help you. We have a service center that can service or repair almost any watch winder of the brands of which we are an official dealer. In the event that we cannot resolve the defect, we can send the watch winder to the relevant brand for investigation and repair.

Watch winder safe for winding automatic watches

Posted on 23 November 2020 at 11:29 AM

Unfortunately, it happens more often than you think, a burglary where personal and valuable jewelry is stolen. Besides the fact that it greatly infringes on the feeling of security, you often also lose valuable things, with or without personal value. You hope never to experience this.

Benson Black Series Safe watch winder

Fortunately, there are ways to protect valuable watches and jewelry and reduce the risk of theft. But if you put automatic watches in a safe, they quickly come to a standstill. This is obviously not good for the automatic timepieces in the watches. After all, standing still is going backwards. To prevent this, a good solution has been devised: a watch winder safe. A watch winder safe is a normal safe in which one or more watch winders are built so that you can not only safely store your automatic watches but also keep them wound up, so that each watch runs neatly on time and you can wear it immediately.

Winding watches in a watch winder

Normally you wind automatic watches in a normal watch winder. However, it does not provide protection against theft. These normal watch winders are cabinets made of wood and often have a glass door that is easy to open or even break open. This increases the risk of theft of your watches and/or jewelry. When you buy a watch winder safe you have optimal protection for your watches. You combine the best of both worlds, as it were. Because not only the risk of theft is smaller, your watches are also immediately ready to wear.

Watchwinder safe

A watch winder safe is actually a normal safe with a panel with watch winders that you can set via the controls. Watch winder safes often offer an extra space to store other jewelry. As a result, all valuables are safely protected. The advantage of these safes is that they are quite heavy and you can anchor them to the ground or wall. This makes it very difficult for burglars. The watch winder safes in our collection are also all equipped with locks made in the EU, which guarantees quality and security. The Benson Black Series watch winder safes have a Wittkopp electronic locking system, made in Germany, that is very highly regarded for safety, durability and ease of use.

Benson Black Series Safe watch winders

The Dutch watch winder brand Benson Watchwinders has become known for its popular Black Series watch winders. This collection of watch winders has models that are suitable for winding 1 to 24 automatic watches. These watch winders are now sold by more than 250 high-end jewelers worldwide. The brand is very strong in producing high-quality watch winders at a very competitive price. That is why many watch enthusiasts have a Benson watch winder for winding their automatic watches.

However, Benson also has a few very interesting watch winder safes so that the watches are completely safe when wound up. The Benson Black Series Safe watch winders are perfectly suitable for those who want to safely store their precious watches and at the same time also want to wind them so that they are immediately ready to wear. The Benson Black Series watch winder safes are made entirely in the EU and have the advanced Wittkopp lock system for maximum security. You open the safe with a code by means of this electronic system. The built-in watch winders are equipped with the latest Benson Black Series technology. These are Japanese motors for every watch and a modern touchscreen with which you operate every rotor. The built-in LED lighting provides a beautiful sight for the rotating watches, but also from a functional point of view it is useful to have extra light in the safe.

The Benson Black Series watch winder safes have a powder coating in the color black. Connect the adapter at the back so that the watch winder is active. This allows you to place the watch winder safe in almost any place. Of course you can then anchor the safe to the wall or ground, so that you create extra security.

The advantages of a watch winder safe

In fact, we have already listed all the benefits of a watch winder safe in this blog article. Safety is of course paramount. Especially when you have more expensive watches and jewelry, it is best to keep it safe. But also if your watches or jewelry have sentimental value, it is recommended to protect them as well as possible. It is very annoying when jewelry that you have inherited or received from a loved one is stolen.

The second advantage is of course that the watch winder in the safe ensures that your automatic watches are always supplied with sufficient energy. This allows you to take any watch directly from the safe and put it on your wrist. You don't have to wind it again and set the time and date. The watch is immediately ready to wear. This saves time but also inconvenience because otherwise you have to open the crown of the watch to set the time and date. The crown is one of the weakest parts of a watch. You don't want to open and close it often.

Check out the possibilities in terms of watch winder safes on our website. We deliver the safes on a pallet via Fedex. The watch winder safes are immediately ready to use. You only have to connect the adapter to the mains and place the watches in it. Naturally, every Benson Black Series watch winder safe comes with a 2-year warranty, manual and certificate.
