Do I Need a Watch Winder? | What is it Actually?

project img

A watch winder is a device used to keep automatic watch running when not worn. Automatic watches operate on the principle of winding themselves using a moving weight inside the watch. The weight swings or rotates while the watch is worn and turns the winding mechanism inside the watch. So, fairly obviously, if the watch is not worn, then it no longer receives power this way and will run down. While virtually all automatic watches can be manually wound, this is not always convenient. So the concept of an automatic watch winder was born.

Watch Winder is a device used to keep an automatic watch running when not worn.  Automatic watches operate on the principle of winding themselves using a moving weight inside the watch. The weight swings or rotates while the watch is worn and turns the winding mechanism inside the watch. So, fairly obviously, if the watch is not worn, then it no longer receives power this way and will run down. While virtually all automatic watches can be manually wound, this is not always convenient. This is the point of having Winder.

Winders are totally useless with battery-operated quartz watches, but there are several types of hybrid watches that can use Winders. These automatic/quartz hybrids use the same weight/rotor principal to generate electric power to run a quartz movement.

So do we need Winders? Yes and no. If we have more than one automatic watch collection. Because to rotate an automatic watch takes time and is quite troublesome.  It will not be effective if we have to do it on many watches. Winders can also help keep your automatic watch free from dust and dirt.
