Posted on 16 March 2023 at 2:46 PM

A beautiful watch is often more than just a handy accessory for the modern man. Nowadays, a beautiful watch is also considered a true piece of jewelry that can complete an outfit. In addition, a luxury watch is also seen as a status symbol, or as a collector's item.

When you have carefully selected a luxury watch, you naturally want to use it as economically as possible. For a watch with an automatic movement, it depends on the correct movement in order to function. In short, this means that your automatic watch will not be wound automatically when it is not being worn. However, you will not always have your watch on your wrist. Consider, for example, at night, or in the case of alternation with another watch, also during the day. Then another solution is needed to ensure that your automatic watch does not stop.

The high-quality watch winder was created for this reason. The first watch winder was developed by the Italian Sandro Colarieti. A great admirer and owner of luxury automatic watches, he developed "a box that defied time". With this, the Italian brand Scatola del Tempo was born at the time. Over the years, more and more brands have emerged, so the development of the watch winder never stopped. Today, watch winders are available from various renowned brands in different price ranges. This is not for nothing, a watch winder is an essential accessory if you own one or more automatic watches.

You use a watch winder, among other things, to provide your automatic watch or watches with the necessary energy when you are not wearing it. The moment the watch is wound in a good watch winder, the oil in the watch is also directly regulated correctly. This benefits the life of your watch. In addition, there are more reasons to purchase a watch winder. A watch winder not only offers the necessary winding of your automatic watches, but also functions as a safe and stylish storage place for your watch or watch collection. Quality watch winders are of course designed in such a way that every automatic watch enjoys a safe way of winding when it is placed in the watch winder. In addition, a lot of care and attention is paid to the prevention of scratches and other damage. This is reflected, among other things, in the soft fabric that is often used on the inside of a watch winder. High-quality watch holders also ensure safe placement. In addition, many watch winders are lockable, so you offer your watches protection against various harmful influences. You can think of, for example, moisture and dust. There are also watch winders available that function on battery, so that they can be placed in a safe. This way you store your watch winder and watches as safely as possible.
