Watch Winders and Automatic Watches

If you are a collector, there comes a time when you have more watches than you can wear. But this can become a concern if the models you have are automatic movement watches. Because, how do you keep them running when they are stored?

Watch Winders and Automatic Watches

Automatic watches are kept in motion thanks to the oscillating mass or rotor they possess. Unlike manual watches, they don't need to be wound; instead, as the wearer moves, this piece rotates with the swinging of the arms. This action winds the mainspring and converts the movement into energy.

As the energy is released, it moves the gears of the watch. But what if you're not wearing it? Since it's not being recharged, there will come a point when the watch stops. Although most automatic watches have a power reserve, it typically only lasts a few days. While modern models often allow manual winding, it's advisable to use this option sparingly as it can wear out the mechanism.

HOW THE WATCH WINDER WORKS

With this in mind, the conclusion is that if an automatic watch is not going to be worn daily, it is highly recommended to use a watch winder to keep it running and also prevent the watch oils from settling. The watch winder is a device that, using a motor, simulates the natural movements of the wrist and keeps automatic watches wound.

To perfectly adapt the case to each model, you can generally program the rotation direction to clockwise (CW), counterclockwise (CCW), or bidirectional. Moreover, they have periods of rest to imitate natural use, although the winding of automatic watches disconnects when fully charged to prevent damage.

The watch winder is especially essential for watches with more complex features such as perpetual calendars or moon phases since, in case they stop, they require a longer setup time.

WOLF watch winders have the innovation of counting the rotations they make, while others simply estimate based on usage time, allowing users to adjust the number of daily rotations according to their preference. Additionally, they are handcrafted instruments that not only focus on precision and care for the watches but also prioritize style and aesthetics in their collections. .
