An automatic watch winder is a device that any owner of a quality watch will appreciate.
Mimicking the natural motion of the wrist, it prevents self-winding watches from winding down.
Many of the world’s quality watches are self-winding and if not worn regularly, they wind down and need resetting.
The automatic watch winder prevents this. And there’s some excellent reasons why it makes a great gift.
It is unique and unusual
You probably won’t find an automatic watch winder on many gift lists.
It used to be that men were thought of as being notoriously hard to buy gifts for but in recent years that has changed.
No longer do you have to resort to socks and after shave or one of those tacky gifts where you plaster on a favourite photo.
There are so many gadgets and fun things for guys, gift buying is easy.
But if you want something unique and unusual, few gifts stand out like an automatic watch winder.
It’s perfect for anyone who loves gadgets
Gadgets are fun. Some guys have a love of gadgets just because they like the idea of what they do. Let’s face it, some gadgets aren’t really that worthwhile. They are often an exaggerated solution to a simple problem, and often it takes less time to accomplish the task by doing it manually.
But not all gadgets are equal and some have a great purpose.
Simple yet effective, it does a necessary task without any fuss.
It does an important job
A quality watch is an investment.
To wear a watch from the likes of Tag Heuer, Cartier, Rolex or Patek-Phillippe is a statement of style.
But that investment demands some care.
A quality watch needs to be worn and also looked after. But not every owner wears their watch every day.
It might be kept for special occasions. Or a gentleman may be fortunate to own a number of quality watches – naturally, they can’t all be worn every day.
For either of these circumstances, an automatic watch winder keeps the watch mechanism ticking over.
Fun but functional
Isn’t that the best description of a good gadget? Gadgets that do exactly what they should with the minimum of fuss are to be applauded – certainly over those gadgets that are all noise and little effect.
With an automatic watch winder, there’s no fuss, no hassle.
It sits quietly, unobtrusively and gets on with the job it’s perfectly designed to do.
Range and affordability
It might seem odd to talk about affordability when we’re considering quality watches. We know designer watches aren’t cheap.
But, affordability might be an issue.
Maybe the watch was received as a very special gift. And being such, it is treasured and loved, but only worn on special occasions.
This is when an automatic watch winder is most needed – hence it needs to be affordable.
And then there’s the gentleman with more than one designer watch.
It’s good to know then that watch winders come in a wide range both in terms of models (single and multiple) and prices.
So, useful, practical and fun – that’s the automatic watch winder!
