Everyone who loves watches hopes that he can own every watch he likes. The more the better, but if there are too many watches, there will be troubles. If the mechanical watch is not worn, it will stop working, and it will cause damage to the movement if it is not worn for a long time. This is so sad. Fortunately, it exists...
Everyone who has worn an automatic mechanical watch knows that it relies on the swing of the arm to drive the core pendulum to rotate, thus providing power for the watch's activities. If it stops, it proves that the power is completely gone. This situation is generally caused by long-term non-wearing. It is necessary to gently swing back and forth for a few minutes or manually wind, so that the parts will not be in a static state for a long time to ensure the running performance of the watch.
If a mechanical watch stops working for a long time, it will not only cause serious damage to the watch movement, it is also troublesome to re-adjust the time after each winding, so watch winder comes into being. Put the watch into the watch winder when you are not wearing it, the watch winder will provide a source of power for your watch. Watch winder, also known as automatic watch winder or automatic watch box, usually refers to a watch box equipped with a motor for automatic winding of high-end mechanical watches.
The watch winder is mainly divided into three categories: rotation instrument, box and cabinet categories. Rotation instruments are generally used in watch repair shops, and those who want to use the cabinet are usually very wealthy at home. Most watch friends use boxes, which are rotated by a turntable through a built-in motor, dust-proof and has a beautiful appearance.
The watches that use the watch winder are usually relatively high-end. Do ordinary mechanical watches require this? It depends on personal conditions. If you have a few Tissot watch and take turns to wear, it is also good to buy a watch winder. If it is a watch with a perpetual calendar, it is necessary to buy a watch winder. For a perpetual calendar watch, the date adjustment may be fatal. A short-term adjustment is easier to deal with, if the watch stops for a long time, the adjustment will become a huge problem.
