Is using a watch winder bad for an automatic watch?

Posted on 6 January 2023 at 12:55 PM

A beautiful watch is a valuable accessory and piece of jewelry for the modern man to complete an outfit. When we talk about watches with an automatic movement, we can say that the watch winder is inextricably linked to this. The high-quality watch winder is therefore gaining more and more ground within the watch industry. For the enthusiast and/or collector of automatic watches, the watch winder is an essential part of this hobby. A good watch winder provides the energy supply for automatic watches by offering the correct mode of movement.

An automatic watch or several automatic watches (depending on the capacity of the watch winder) can be placed in the watch winder. This goes easily through the specially intended watch holders in a watch winder. The watch winder then takes care of the movement, often by means of rotation. In this way the automatic watch is wound and you prevent it from stopping when it is not being worn.

You may be wondering whether a watch winder can do any harm to your beloved automatic watch. We can be brief about this, this is certainly not the case. In fact, a watch winder plays an important role in preserving your watch. As mentioned, a good watch winder initially ensures that your automatic watch does not stop when you are not wearing it. Standstill can, among other things, cause inaccuracies in the time display, so you can prevent this by using a suitable watch winder. In addition, a watch winder also ensures optimal oil supply within the timepiece due to the movement offered. Because of the movements, the oil is perfectly distributed in the movement of the watch. This ensures that you protect your watch from unnecessary wear and tear and therefore benefits the life of your watch.

When you purchase a good watch winder, you do not have to worry about overvoltage of your automatic watch or watches. Automatic watches are already equipped with overwind protection, but a good watch winder also has overwind protection. This ensures that your watch is always optimally protected against overvoltage. With all the advantages that a high-quality watch winder offers, it certainly becomes clear that a watch winder is not harmful to your automatic watch. It is a handy and important accessory for the preservation of your automatic watch.

In addition to the aforementioned advantages, a watch winder is also perfectly suitable for storing your automatic watch or watches. Watch winders are available for winding and storing one automatic watch, but also watch winders that offer space for an entire watch collection. In addition, there are several beautiful watch winder brands that, in addition to the capacity for winding multiple automatic watches, also offer extra storage space. This storage space can then be used to store other watches or, for example, jewelry or cufflinks. Due to the design of various luxury watch winders within the watch industry, there are also various beautiful options for purchasing a watch winder that can also be used directly as a display for a beautiful collection or of course a single special piece.
