What are the best Swiss made watch winders?

Posted on 8 August 2020 at 12:47 PM

You need a watch winder if you don't want to let your automatic watches stand still. When an automatic watch is not worn or is wound up in a watch winder, it will stop running after +- 32-40 hours. If you want to wear the watch afterwards, you have to reset the time, date and other settings. In addition, you must provide the watch with energy again so that it starts running again. This is inconvenient and unnecessary because a watch winder ensures that the watches run neatly on time and you can wear the watch immediately.

Good quality watch winders come from various countries. You can think of Germany, the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Italy and Switzerland. In this blog we write about the best Swiss watch winders. Switzerland is of course the watch country pur sang and has an excellent reputation for quality, workmanship and functionality. Various watch winder brands also come from Switzerland, allowing their watch winders to bear the Swiss made designation. A kind of quality mark that assures you as a user of good quality. Swiss watch winder brands are Bernard Favre, Swiss Kubik and RDI. In addition, there are also a few brands from other countries that do use Swiss technology. More obout this later.

If you are looking for a good Swiss watch winder, which brand and model is the best to buy? What should you pay attention to and what are the differences between the brands? In this blog we answer the most important questions regarding a Swiss watch winder. 

Swiss watch winder

What is a Swiss watch winder? The answer is simple, a Swiss watch winder is a watch winder that is made in Switzerland and may bear the designation Swiss made. Production takes place in this country and the parts must come mostly from this Alpine country.

The most important part of the watch winder is the motor. Brands such as Swiss Kubik, Bernard Favre and RDI use Swiss motors. These motors are developed and produced by specific companies in Switzerland. It guarantees long-term proper operation of the watch winder with a minimum of sound. Swiss motors are very well regarded, but are also more expensive than watch winders with German or Japanese motors.

Swiss Kubik watch winders

The most famous watch winder brand from Switzerland is Swiss Kubik. This brand produces very compact watch winders for 1 to 12 watches. The advantage of these Swiss Kubik watch winders is that they function for more than 1 year on a set of batteries. The models are therefore very energy-efficient and therefore very pleasant to put in a safe. The watch winders do not have extensive functionalities but are very effective.

Bernard Favre watch winders

The most special Swiss watch winder brand is Bernard Favre. This brand produces very high-quality watch winders with Swiss technology, which have a very unique way of winding. The Planet models of this brand turn the watch, like a planet, on its axis. This is a beautiful sight and very effective in winding up any automatic watch. The watch winder comes with a glass bell jar that can be placed over the watch winder for an extra luxurious look, but especially for good protection of the automatic watch.

Bernard Favre watch winders are in the higher price segment because of the high-quality materials and the unique winding system.

RDI watch winders

Less known but certainly no less interesting are the RDI watch winders. This Swiss brand produces watch winders with its own appearance and excellent quality. The RDI collection is very extensive with different styles and materials. The brand does not produce standard watch winders, but rather unique models designed by artists and made of very special materials.

The RDI watch winders are produced by hand in a high-tech factory that we have already visited. Quality, beautiful materials and pure craftsmanship are at the top of this great brand.

Benson Swiss Series watch winders

There are also brands from other countries that use Swiss technology in their watch winders. Two good examples are Scatola del Tempo and the Dutch brand Benson. The latter brand is a brand that has become extremely popular and has grown considerably in recent years. Benson watch winders are known for their excellent quality, modern designs and attractive price levels. Actually, there is no other watch winder brand that offers such a good price/quality.

Soon Benson will present a completely new series: the Swiss Series. This new series consists of watch winders with Swiss technology and is assembled in the Netherlands. This creates a unique series of watch winders with the most modern technology and beautiful quality.


There are various watch winder brands from Switzerland. They have in common that they produce excellent quality watch winders. The Swiss made designation is a nice extra for many watch enthusiasts. Swiss watch winders are often priced a bit higher than other brands, but of course you also get a Swiss motor. This is known for its good quality and high durability.

If you would like a watch winder with Swiss technology, you can also look at Scatola del Tempo or Benson. Both brands produce excellent watch winders with Swiss technology. In short, there is plenty of choice!

Affordable watch winders for 2 watches

Posted on 3 August 2020 at 8:09 PM

An automatic watch comes to a standstill when you are not wearing it. When you want to wear it again you have to pull out the crown, reset the time and date and then wind the watch manually. This not only takes time but is also inconvenient. In addition, you can damage the watch during these actions, because you have to pull out the crown very carefully.

The solution is a watch winder. A watch winder is a watch accessory that you use to wind watches. The automatic watches are wound by slowly turning them clockwise or counter-clockwise. This gives the timepiece inside the watch energy so that the timepiece will function. A watch winder mimics wrist movement, as it were, as if you were wearing the watch.

A watch winder is especially useful if you have one or more automatic watches and do not wear them every day. For example, when you want to wear a different watch every day or when you wear one specific automatic watch for a long time and the other watches are stationary. With watches it also applies that standing still is deterioration. We therefore advise to use a watch winder if you are a fan of automatic watches.

Watch winders come in all shapes, sizes and prices. In this blog we write about affordable watch winders for 2 watches. Which watch winder for 2 watches is best to buy? What should you pay attention to? And where do you buy a good watch winder at an affordable price?

Differences between watch winders

What applies to cars also applies to watch winders. There are many different brands, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. If you want a high-end brand, you often pay a higher price than if you buy a watch winder from a smaller brand. A watch winder is in principle a relatively simple device. It has the ability to wind one or more automatic watches by rotating the watches. The differences in watch winders is mainly in the motors used, the operation and extras such as LED lighting, remote control, extra storage space, Bluetooth function or a special app. These are all nice extras and more important to one person than the other. In essence, a watch winder should rotate the watches and provide them with energy.

There are a few parts that we would like to mention so that you know the most important elements of a watch winder. First we start with the motors. The motors are the heart of the watch winder. Good reliable and durable motors last a long time and make little sound. It is therefore important to choose a watch winder with good quality motors. Otherwise, you will experience faulty motors or an increase in noise, which can cause the watch winder to produce disturbing noise. You can then no longer use the watch winder in a bedroom or office where you are working. Swiss motors, for example used by Swiss Kubik and Orbita, have a good reputation but are also more expensive than, for example, Japanese motors, which are used by Paul Design and Boda Concept. These Japanese motors also have a very good reputation and offer a good price/quality ratio.

We would like to mention the operation as a second important point. It is useful if the watch winder is quick and easy to set up. Each rotor on which you place a watch must be individually adjustable, so rotate independently of the other rotors. Because one automatic watch has different requirements than the other. You can think of a watch that has to rotate clockwise at 900 revolutions per day while your other watches have to rotate counter-clockwise at 600 revolutions per day. Then it is useful if you have a watch winder where you can set each rotor individually. This is also useful when you buy a new watch once. Most good watch winders have an LCD screen or touchscreen with which you can adjust all settings. Some watch winders still have buttons or knobs. That is not wrong in itself, but a bit old-fashioned. Most high end watch winder brands, such as the Benson watch winders, all have modern touchscreens with which you can operate every setting of the device.

As a third part we want to mention the materials and finish of the watch winder. Much cheaper watch winders save a lot on materials. A good watch winder for 2 watches is made of wood or aluminum. Wood absorbs sound, is sturdy and has a beautiful appearance. Aluminum is also strong and has a more modern look. Watch winders that have a completely plastic housing can make more noise, especially in combination with a cheaper type of motor. When looking at the watch holder, the part on which the watch is attached, it is important that it clamps the watch tightly and contains soft fabric so that the harder parts of the watch holder cannot damage the watch. In terms of finish, we think it is important that the watch winder is well assembled and pleasant to use.

What are the normal prices for a good watch winder?

You prefer to spend your money on watches. But you also want to maintain your watches well and ensure that they do not wear or defect. A watch winder ensures that the oil in the timepiece is well distributed and that you don't have to open the crown (often). So you exclude risks that you do without a watch winder.

As written, there are many differences between watch winders. There are units of thousands of euros, but these are exceptions that can, for example, wind a lot of watches, have a special design or are made of special materials. However, you can already buy a good watch winder for 2 watches for several hundred euros. The Benson Compact watchwinders are a good example, but also the Smart-Tech II and Black Series watchwinders of this brand. These are excellent watch winders that are also affordable.

At a brand like Paul Design you will find the Gentlemen 2 + 3 watch winder that has a very good reputation. This model is modern, high-quality and very pleasant to use. You can also choose from different colors.

If you have a little more to spend, check out Orbita, a brand from the United States. This brand has the Orbita Sparta 2 watch winders that look quite simple and basic, but offer everything to wind automatic watches without any problems.

If you go a little higher in price, you can choose a Swiss Kubik watch winder for 2 watches. Swiss Kubik has the great advantage that she uses Swiss engines and the watch winder itself is completely Swiss made. Quality is guaranteed!

What should you pay attention to when buying a watch winder?

We advise you to buy a watch winder from a good brand. If you buy a watch winder from an unknown brand, you risk buying a cat in a bag. A good brand invests in technology, innovation, after-sales and new products. The brands described above are all good brands where you can buy a watch winder with confidence.

It is also important to choose a good seller. Choose a specialist in watch winders. A company that can provide you with a wide choice, advice and clear information. The fact that the company is an official dealer of well-known brands is an advantage, it shows that these brands have confidence in the dealer and also provide support. This is important when there is unexpectedly something wrong with the watch winder. Then you can go back to the seller who will repair or replace it.

Our last tip, in this blog article, is not to save on buying a good watch winder for 2 watches. You really do not have to buy an expensive watch winder to power your automatic watches, but you will certainly lose a few hundred euros. If you go for a cheap watch winder from an unknown brand, remember that cheap can be expensive. You want the best for your automatic watches? And you also want a nice watch winder that is not only safe for your watches, but especially for you and your environment.

You will find an affordable watch winder for 2 watches in our webshop. Take a look around, compare models and if you have a question, call or email us. We are happy to help you.

The best large watch winders

Posted on 28 July 2020 at 6:34 PM

Why do you need a watch winder? That's a good question if you don't know much about automatic watches. An automatic watch will come to a standstill if it's not worn. A watch winder mimics the movement of wearing a watch on your wrist. This is useful for watch collectors if you have several watches so that they are all at the right time. For collectors it is useful if you have 12, 16, 20 or 24 automatic watches, but of course you also have watch winders for 1, 2,3 or 4 watches.

When you use a watch winder, you want it to fit in your interior and perhaps also match your watch collection. You prefer to place your modern watches in a modern watch winder rather than in a classically designed watch winder. And reverse, you prefer to place your classic automatic watches in a matching watch winder rather than in a watch winder with a very modern design.

In terms of interior, for example, it is nice if you can adjust the watch winder to your interior. You can think of the color, but also the use of materials or the design. Of course, the size is also important. A larger watch winder that is suitable for winding 12 or 16 watches is not small. However, it can be the eye catcher in your interior.

In this blog we write about larger watch winders. These are watch winders that have a larger capacity and can therefore wind more automatic watches at the same time. What should you pay attention to when buying a large watch winder? What are the pros and cons? We also give a few examples of good watch winder brands that have larger watch winders in their range.

The advantages of a large watch winder

If you have several automatic watches and you also change them regularly, a watch winder is a very handy watch accessory. A watch winder provides convenience because you no longer have to worry about your watches. The watches are simply always on time and ready to wear. This saves you a lot of time and energy. Convenience is key!

Another important advantage of a large watch winder is that you keep all your watches in one place. So you always have them with you and do not lose them. A large watch winder is often a real interior piece, an eye catcher from which family, friends and colleagues will be interested to ask how it works. It is not an everyday device, especially a large one. However, it is a beautiful sight, all watches turn neatly and beautifully illuminated by LED lighting.

We also advise to always choose a watch winder that is slightly larger than the number of watches you want to wind. You always have enough capacity when your watch collection expands.

Which watch winder brands have large watch winders in their collection?

There are only a few high-quality watch winder brands worldwide that also offer larger watch winders. Brands like Orbita, Swiss Kubik and Benson have a very good reputation and produce fantastic watch winders. Orbita focuses on traditional design and often uses wood. Swiss Kubik has a more modern and compact design and is purely focused on winding watches. Benson is a brand that offers a nice combination of both. This brand has beautiful designs, wooden cabinets and very modern technology. In addition, the Benson watch winders can be operated simply and quickly by the built-in touchscreen.

Reasons not to buy a budget watch winder

Posted on 23 July 2020 at 10:51 AM

You have probably heard someone telling about a watch winder. Perhaps a friend who likes automatic watches or a colleague who has bought one. But what exactly is a watch winder? The answer is simple; A watch winder is a device that provides the automatic watch with energy by rotating one or more automatic watches, so that it continues to run. For this, the watch does not stop and you do not have to wind it manually and reset the time and date.

A watch winder is the number 1 accessory for automatic watches. The device is not only very handy because you never have to set the time and functions of the watch again, it also ensures optimal preservation of your automatic watches. The oil remains well distributed among the parts of the timepiece inside the watch. In addition, you no longer have to open the crown to manually wind the watch and reset the time when it is standing still. The crown is one of the most vulnerable parts of a watch. In other words, using a watch winder has many advantages. Advantages valued by real watch fans and watch collectors. A real watch enthusiast who owns automatic watches certainly has a watch winder! Brands such as Swiss Kubik, Benson, Bernard Favre and Orbita are world famous, and wind watches from brands such as IWC, Rolex, Breitling, Omega, Tag Heuer and Panerai well and safely.

Different types of watch winders

Watch winders come in all shapes and sizes. The differences between brands are large. You can think of the design, the amount of watches that fit in it, color, materials and operation. In addition, there are large price differences. In short, there are many different types of watch winders. There are also many different brands, which come from various countries. Good watch winders are produced in the Netherlands, Germany, the US, Switzerland and Italy. Watch winders are also made in cheap production countries. Are these always of bad quality? No, but you have to be careful and be well informed. Cheap can quickly become expensive and you prefer not to take risks with your automatic watches, right?

What do you have to pay attention to if you want a watch winder to wind your automatic watches properly and safely? In this blog we write why you would rather not buy a budget watch winder. We substantiate why this type of watch winders is normally not a good purchase.

Budget watch winders

It is important to first determine what a budget watch winder is. A budget watch winder is a watch winder that is made of less good materials and where minimal time and care has been taken to assemble it properly. The result is a cheap watch winder that does not have the qualities you need to safely supply automatic watches with energy. The producer is often not interested to produce a good quality product that you can enjoy for many years. The producer is committed produce a low-end product from which he can earn money quickly and easily.

Budget watch winders are relatively easy to find on Ebay, Amazon and Aliexpress. You actually recognize them immediately. Most budget watch winders offered are not from a brand, or the brand is unknown and insignificant. In addition, the price is often too good to be true, especially compared with well know watch winder brands. Yet the producers of budget watch winders often manage to create a nice design to mislead the consumer. You have the idea that you buy a good watch winder, because it looks good, while the quality is absolutely disappointing.

Most budget watch winders are made of plastic or fake wood. In addition, Chinese motors are often used that eventually produce a lot of noise or even stop functioning completely. In addition, watch winders from, for example, Aliexpress are not really intended for the European market. The devices are produced according to Chinese standards, where we in Europe have stricter guidelines for products in terms of materials, quality and safety.

Make no mistake, budget watchwinders are also offered in Europe and are produced in China, Taiwan, Vietnam or Indonesia. There are many small jewelers and web shops that offer such watch winders. Of course, the above written above also applies. So make sure you buy a good watch winder of a well know and respected brand from an official dealer who can also provide you with advice and warranty should a defect occur.

Disadvantages budget watch winder

What are the disadvantages of a budget watch winder? First of all, you should think about problems with winding your automatic watch. Most watch winders have all the functionalities you need to wind a watch, regardless of brand or model. A budget watch winder obviously does not have all the options and usually only has one preset mode that is absolutely not suitable for winding every automatic watch. Often the watch winder is set to 900 TPD clockwise. This works for a large part of the automatic watches, but certainly not for all watches. If you just have a watch that needs a different TPD (turns per day) or a different direction of rotation, you cannot use the watch winder for that specific watch. The will simply not get any energy via the budget watch winder. Watch winders with good functionality can be found, for example, at Swiss Kubik or Orbita.

Another important disadvantage of a budget watch winder is that they are equipped with cheap Chinese motors. These motors consume a relatively large amount of power, are often noisy and have the property of not being particularly durable. Since the motors are one of the most important parts of a watch winder, the lack of durability of the watch winder as a whole is therefore a fact. You better choose a watch winder with Japanese motors, for example from the Dutch brand Benson, or from Paul Design that comes from the United Kingdom.

Budget watch winders are often unbranded and are not supported by existing brands in terms of parts and repair. If you have a defect in your watch winder, parts are not or hardly available. Actually, the watch winder has become virtually useless. With respected brands you can always go back for repair or replacement parts, so you can repair the watch winder even after the warranty has expired. This allows you to enjoy the device for a much longer time. Most well-known brands have a dealer network in Europe, Asia and the USA. This saves you a lot of time, annoyance and shipping costs.

But perhaps the most important is the safety of a watch winder. It is an electronic device that you want to use with confidence. Because budget watch winders do not spend a lot of time and money on good parts and materials safety is not the producer's greatest priority. This while a watch winder should not only be safe for your automatic watches, but especially for you and your environment.

As a final drawback, we would like to talk about the warranty. With the above in mind, you have a good chance that you will soon have to make a claim under warranty. Given the level of quality and durability of the watch winder, you should not bet on a good service from the manufacturer. If you still want to send the defective watch winder to the manufacturer in China or another country in Asia, take a look at the shipping rates. The shipping costs can turn out to be an unpleasant surprise. Cheap then quickly becomes expensive.

Is every budget watch winder of poor quality?

We'll say exceptions confirm the rule. Not every budget watch winder is of poor quality. There are a few brands that manage to offer a reasonable quality watch winder for a very low price. However, these watch winders definitely do not achieve the degree of quality, finish, durability and low noise for the brands described above.

If you want a good watch winder for your automatic watches, you must be prepared to spend at least 150 euros on this. For this amount, as a minimum, you buy a watch winder for 1 automatic watch with a Japanese motor. For example the Benson Compact watch winder. This model is compact, simply designed and works on batteries and mains power. If you want more luxury, you can check the popular Smart-Tech II and Black Series watch winders at Benson.


Do you want a good quality watch winder? Then you will also have to pay for it. Good watch winders are not cheap. A watch winder that does offer quality and has good functionality to wind every automatic watch costs something. However, there are several brands that offer good watch winders for a relatively low and attractive price. Brands such as Boda Concept, Benson, Paul Design and also Heisse & Söhne. All brands where you can buy a great watch winder without having to pay a big amount. 

In any case, what we advise you in your search for a watch winder is to ignore budget watch winders from Amazon, Aliexpress and Ebay. These do not offer the quality that a good watch winder has so that you can enjoy it for years. In addition, you do not want a product for your watch collection that actually does more harm than good.

If your budget is limited and you still want a watch winder for a low amount, take a look at the Benson Compact watch winders.
