What is Watch Winder?
A watch winder is an amazing gadget used to keep automatic watches running when not worn. It is a great way of keeping your automatic watch wound and keeping the main spring at optimal performance.
Who needs a watch winder?
Anyone who has an automatic watch also know as self winding watch, which isn’t worn daily should have one. Winders are totally useless with battery-operated quartz watches. But they do work for the special 'battery-less' quartz watches, such as the Omega-Matic, Seiko Kinetic, and similar.
How Does a Winder Work?
The watch winder holds an automatic watch and moves it in a circular patterns to emulate the necessary parts of human motion to operate the self-winding mechanism.
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 if the watch is not worn, then it no longer receives power this way and will run down. This is why Watch winder came into picture.
Congrats! You are no longer a dummy.
