Specifications: The internal parts of automatic watches are designed to follow the pull of gravity. Therefore, they don't have gears that must be wound with a spring. Instead, their tiny weights get pulled by gravity as you move and swing your arm, so little by little these weights are twisting around both clockwise and counter-clockwise, until your watch is wound up. Watches like this are called automatic or self-winding types, as opposed to quartz kinetic, or mechanical watches.The internal parts of automatic watches are designed to follow the pull of gravity. If you own fancy, collectible, beloved, or merely sufficient self-winding watches, you may want to invest in a watch winder. Not only do these devices keep your timepiece accurate whenever you pull it out of the compartment, they probably extend the overall life of fine watches by keeping parts lubricated and moving. By advancing the mainspring, it gently and continually winds the watch, yet prevents your watch from ever being over wound.
Another mechanism inside most watches will disengage after the gears have been fully powered. Beautiful watch winders are as decorative and elaborate as the timepieces that they hold. Some resemble cubes of polished and inlaid wood.

Many collectors and enthusiasts quickly get into this dilemma.
Ultimately, the main function of a winder is as a convenience device. Doesn't a winder protect my watch by keeping the oils from clotting? The oils used in most modern watches and properly serviced vintage watches are not very prone to clotting or coagulating. While there are technical reasons in favor of keeping a watch continuously running, there are also reasons in favor of not unnecessarily overusing a watch.There is no significant evidence that a good watch winder will either save or harm your watch. The several watch repair professionals, We've dealt with say they've never encountered a watch that'would have been fine, if only the owner had kept it on a winder. So how should I choose whether to get a winder or not? Choose a winder for your needs based on its convenience value to you. If you have a watch you almost never wear, simply wind it up every couple of weeks and let it run down. But for automatic watches you wear frequently, but not continuously, a winder is a great solution for keeping them ready to wear on a moment's notice. If this convenience is worth the cost of a winder to you, then go for it! The single biggest advantage of a winder for seldom used watches is for those with complex perpetual calendar features that may require elaborate resetting after the watch has been stopped for a while. What types of winders are available? The types of watch winders currently on the market tend to fall into three main categories. Generally, these units hold the watch on the exterior of the device. As such, they tend to need to be on a tabletop or somewhat tall shelf. Some which handle more than one watch start to resemble carnival rides, with their merry-go-round or ferris wheel configurations and multiple rotating watch holders. Elegant: These winders go beyond pure functionality and offer a nice form and exterior. Normally they are a completely enclosed box, often made of nicely finished wood or covered in leather. They are suitable for display on a desk or dresser, yet many are capable of fitting inside a drawer or safe deposit box. Extravagant: As with many luxury items, the sky is the limit on options.
Winders with built-in storage drawers, and atomic-clock-synchronized time displays are some of the esoteric and beyond features available on some of the very high end winders. Within these are options of a/c and battery powered units. The battery units are especially nice for use on shelves, in drawers, or in a safe deposit box. Should I start with a single head unit or go for a multi headed unit? If you are enough of a collector to want a winder, don't short-change yourself by skimping on a winder that can only handle one watch.
Consider at least one of the single-unit watch winders have optional two-watch heads. What else should I consider? Don't underestimate the value of manual wind watches for your collection. They offer the joy of needing to interact with your collection every day or two to keep them going.
It can be nice to be needed. Vintage manual wind watches are readily available, modern ones are less common but still made.
Not only will you not need a winder, they are intentionally easy to wind by hand. Many automatics have screw down crowns or are otherwise not as accommodating for frequent manual winding.
Automatic watches are intended for fairly regular wear. So concentrate your ownership of automatic watches on those that you will wear at least a couple of times a week. Winders are a nice convenience for watches you don't wear daily.
But why spin away most of the lifetime of several nice watches waiting for you to seldom wear them. A bad watch winder is worse than no winder. Automatic watches are designed to be worn by people. People move in a large diversity of manners, causing a fairly even distribution of motion of the watch's internal winding mechanism. A watch winder is normally limited to a very finite number of directions and types of movement -- some as little as one single motion.So a poorly designed winder. Might cause undesirable wear of the watch's mechanisms from excessive and repetitive movement. MDF sprayed paint, gloss finishing. New curved front lid design.
