The 5 best watch winders under 1000 euro

Posted on 29 April 2020 at 6:46 PM

The real watch enthusiast owns at least one automatic watch. An automatic watch has a timepiece that needs movement. The spring inside the timepiece tightens by means of movement and when it relaxes the hands move forward. But what happens when an automatic watch does not move, for example because it is stationary? The watch will then stop. If you want to wear the watch again, you must first set the time, and any other functions, and move the watch or wind it manually by turning the crown. Every watch enthusiast knows that this is not convenient. It takes time and you risk damaging your watch, since the crown is one of the weakest parts of a watch. In addition, an automatic watch does not get better from a standstill. The solution is to use a watch winder. A watch winder is a watch accessory for automatic watches that keeps the watches moving and therefore running. The automatic watches rotate gently in a watch winder, so that the energy in the watch is preserved. You can therefore take the watch out of the watch winder at any time and wear it immediately. Handy and time-saving, but also better for automatic watches.

But which watch winder up to 1000 euros is best to buy? You want a good watch winder that not only winds your watches, but also looks beautiful in your office, bedroom or living room.

The 5 best watch winders under 500 euro

Posted on 23 April 2020 at 4:32 PM

Which watch winder should you buy when you have a maximum of 500 euros to spend? We will address this question in this blog, as this budget is common among watch enthusiasts. To answer the question correctly, we looked at different brands, capacity and functionality.

There are various brands that offer an excellent watch winder for less than 500 euros. Most of these watch winders are suitable for 1 or 2 automatic watches. If you want a watch winder for 3 or more automatic watches, you will soon cross the limit of 500 euros. A watch winder with more capacity, which can therefore wind more watches, simply costs more than a watch winder that is suitable for 1 or 2 watches.

In other words, they have a good reputation in watch winders and offer good service. We have created a ranking of the best 5 watch winders up to 500 euros.

Affordable watch winder

Posted on 17 April 2020 at 8:11 AM

In our webshop you can find watch winders in different price ranges. In the higher price ranges we see very exclusive designs. Luxury watch winders can be called true works of art. There are even those that are designed in collaboration with artists, but also watch winders that use very high-quality materials such as gold, real leather or rare wood. Watch winders for thirty-six watches and watch winders with built-in safes are also available. In some cases, the watch winder is the icing on the cake of a watch collection. It is used to present the watches in a beautiful way, to keep them safe and as an eye-catcher in an interior. Good examples are the watch winders by Orbita and Bernard Favre. The watch winder is increasingly becoming more popular and in fact it's the watch accessory "pur sang".

Orbita Sparta 2 Bold watch winder

But there is also a completely different group of watch winders. Because for those who simply want a high-quality watch winder that is particularly functional and reliable, without unnecessary fuss, there is also plenty of choice. This blog article is therefore for the consumer who is looking for a good and affordable watch winder and does not want to spend too much money. Are you not so much looking for luxury, but for functionality at a competitive price? Then keep reading.

A watch winder is more or less indispensable if you own one or more automatic watches. This handy accessory efficiently ensures that your watch does not stop when you are not wearing it. An automatic watch depends on the correct movement for generating energy, instead of using a battery like in a quartz watch. When you are not wearing your watch, a watch winder can take over this function. It is therefore important in the first place that a good watch winder does this correctly. This prevents wear and damage to your watch. Reliability, reliability and durability are also important terms when you are looking for a good watch winder.

A great brand in the field of affordable watch winders is Benson. The collection of Benson watch winders includes several series, of which the Benson Compact series and the Smart-Tech II series are beautiful examples of high quality watch winders, which are very functional, at a competitive price. Benson knows how to guarantee a good price/quality ratio because the watch winders are manufactured in-house.

They are very functional and at the same time ideal when you are looking for an affordable watch winder that you can easily take with you on a trip or use in the office. Equipped with quiet, energy-efficient and strong Japanese motors, these watch winders are very comfortable and at the same time durable in use.

The Benson Smart-Tech II series watch winders are also a nice choice for anyone looking for a watch winder with a good price/quality ratio. These models offer a bit more luxury than the Benson Compact watch winders. Like the Benson Compact series these watch winders are very effective in winding your automatic watches in the right way. Despite the fact that these watch winders are affordable, they are fully equipped to provide your watches with energy. With the modern touchscreen, the rotors can be individually set with regard to the direction of rotation and the number of rotations per day. The Benson Smart-Tech II watch winders are also equipped with a powerwind function, overwind protection and LED lighting. There is a Smart-Tech II watch winder for two, four or six automatic watches. In addition, the built-in drawer offers extra space to store other watches, jewelry or cufflinks. Through the glass door you have a perfect view of the rotating watches.

A good quality watch winder does not have to be expensive at all. You just have to know where to look, because not all inexpensive watch winders also offer the necessary functionality and reliability. And of course you want to enjoy your watch winders and your watches for a long time! Therefore choose a good watch winder brand and always buy from a seller who has experience with this accessory. You only want to wind your precious automatic watches in a good watch winder, right ?!

Why are the Chronovision watch winders so good?

Posted on 11 April 2020 at 9:00 AM

Watch winders that are made in Germany and Switzerland have a good reputation. Not only because most watches from both countries are also well regarded, but mainly because these watch winders offer a lot of quality. The quality is determined, among other things, by the motor, the operation and the use of materials. It is very important for the user that the watch winder is easy to operate and set up without complicated menus. As an official dealer of Chronovision, we write an article about this German brand in this blog. Chronovision is one of our premium watch winder brands in our collection. But why are the Chronovision watch winders so good?

Chronovision One watch winders

Chronovision watch winders are made in Sauerland, a region in Germany. At the heart of the watch winder is a motor designed and produced in Germany. This motor ensures optimal excitement of automatic watches with an extremely low sound level. The watch winders have a compact design and modern appearance. Every Chronovision watch winder has Bluetooth that can be connected via the special app. With this app you can set the watch winder to your liking. You can determine the direction of rotation and the number of revolutions per day and adjust them if you want to wind another watch in the watch winder.

The nice thing about the Chronovision watch winders is that they work on a set of batteries. On such a set, the watch winder works for at least half a year depending on the chosen winding program, the size and weight of the watch. Due to the compact design and the battery operated watch winder, you are very flexible where you place the watch winder. You can easily place the watch winder in a safe, in a cabinet or on a desk. You do not need mains power.

Chronovision cabinet watch winder

What we like about the Chronovision watch winders is the modern appearance and the wide choice that the brand offers in terms of material and color. There is always a watch winder that suits your taste, style or interior. The materials have been chosen with care and have a very luxurious appearance. The brand has carefully looked at what its customers like and has put together a collection based on that.

We recently visited the Chronovision factory. Watch winders from A to Z are produced here. Each watch winder is put together step by step, whereby the functions and finish are continuously monitored. Each watch winder is thoroughly tested before leaving the factory.

Chronovision watch winders are produced through a professional production process with a lot of attention to quality and finish. The German motor, convenient operation and modern app make every Chronovision watch winder an ideal watch winder for those who prefer not a standstill of their automatic watches.

As official Chronovision dealer we supply every watch winder with a 3 year warranty and manual. The app is made available free of charge.

Watch winders in a safe

Posted on 31 March 2020 at 6:51 PM

Let's start at the beginning. Because what exactly is a watch winder? When do you use it? The true enthusiast or collector of automatic watches will certainly not be unknown to this watch accessory. An automatic watch does not work on a battery, but through movement. This means that the watch only continues to run when it is in motion. This happens automatically when the watch is worn. The natural movement of the wrist then provides the necessary energy to run the watch. If the watch is not worn and there is no movement, the watch will eventually stop. Besides being annoying that you have to reset the time and functions, this is also harmful to your watch. This can cause inaccuracies in time and date display, among other things, because the oil in the timepiece is no longer nicely distributed over all moving parts of the timepiece. The oil is necessary for all moving parts to move smoothly and without much resistance. Standstill literally means decline.

A watch winder is a good and suitable solution when you are not wearing your automatic watches. The watch winder provides the necessary movement (usually by rotation) and in this way ensures that your automatic watch does not stop. A watch winder is suitable for someone with a single automatic watch that is not always worn, but also for the watch collector who logically cannot wear several watches at the same time. Other benefits of using a watch winder is that it protects the watches from external influences such as dust and dirt. The watch winder also protects against damage and at the same time offers a nice storage place for your watches.

Then we come to the topic of this blog. Watch winders in a safe. If you are a fan of good quality watches, you will want to store them safely. As mentioned earlier, a watch winder already protects your watches in different ways. But you also want to protect your watches against theft. A good option is to place your watches with a watch winder which is placed inside a safe. In a so-called watch winder safe, the watches are safe and yet they are wound because the watch winders provide them with energy.

There are a few options. You have complete safes in which watch winders are fully integrated. You place your watch in the safe and the watch is wound. These safes are quite luxurious and specially aimed at winding and keeping your automatic watches safe. A good example is the Benson safes. These watch winder safes are completely with built-in with watch winders. Because mains power is provided, you can connect the safe via the adapter. Ready for use.

Another option is to place small individual watch winders in a safe. These watch winders work on batteries and can be placed individually in the safe. So they are loose in the safe and you can easily take them out again. You can find examples of these watch winders at Swiss Kubik and Chronovision. These brands make high-quality compact watch winders that work on a set of batteries for 1 to 3 years. Ideal to place in a safe. However, you are probably a bit more expensive than buying a ready to use watch winder safe.

Do you really want a professional safe of hundreds of kilos in which you can store not only your watches, but also papers, jewelry or other jewelry? Then the German brand Heisse & Söhne is a good choice! These large watch winder safes meet the highest European standards in this area and are therefore also very suitable for storing your watch winder and your beloved watches. In addition, these safes meet the requirements of insurers. These safes are very heavy and are specially produced according to the wishes of the customer. They are brought on site and installed by a professional from Heisse & Söhne.

No watch enthusiast wants his or her beloved watches to be stolen or damaged. Placing a watch winder safe or compact watch winders individually in a safe is then ideal. It just depends on which option suits you better. The advantage of placing compact watch winders in a safe is that you are more flexible. If you buy or sell one or more watches, simply place or remove a watch winder in/from the safe. A watch winder safe, however, offers an all-in-one package. You are ready immediately, it looks beautiful and you have mains power (no batteries replaced, etc.).

The choice is yours!
