Importance of watch winder
When an automatic watch is not worn, they are recommended to be stored in watch winders. Watch winder’s purpose is to store and keep automatic watches running when not worn. The function is to move watches periodically, mostly in a circular motion which moves the weight of the watch and keeps it in running condition. But this is not only a single-use for which watch winder is used, but there can be many other applications of watch winder.
Watch Oils and Mechanism
The periodic movement of watch winder helps to keep watch in running condition, by this the oils and other mechanisms of the watch remain in function. But this periodic is not continuous for 24 hours and the interval period for single motion can be set up to 30 minutes apart. This also helps to reduce the overuse of winder and watch. As watch remains in working condition, this keeps all the oils and mechanism intact. This is also extremely helpful when the watches have multiple mechanisms for time, date and lunar movement. As the parts in a watch increases and different machines working simultaneously, it always makes difficult to manually wind all in one time. This also prolongs the life of watch and reduces its maintenance cost also.
