    Watch winder

    Hi,

    I have a tag calibre 16 and a breitling professional automatic. I am looking for 2 watch winders, does anyone have any recommendations? Ideally I would like a tag winder but can't find them anywhere,

    Thanks

    Winders are pretty much of a toy, save your money for your next watch.

    Wolf makes excellent winders. Just search Amazon.

    Re: Watch winder

    I bought this two years ago and it has worked excellently. It has multiple TPD settings and multi- directional settings. I would ignore statements of wether you need one or not, you can find threads with pages and pages of debate over that, if you want one then get one. I like to keep my autos wound and have had no problems using a winder. Here is the link to the one I bought https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I paid $149 was showing it out of stock but they had others by the same company listed.

    Must have made some major improvements since I sold them.

    I bought the lower cost Diplomat winder (2 watch) when I first started collecting watches. It was fine for lighter watches like my Hamilton 42mm Khaki but started making a weird clicking noise when I put in my heavier Tissot PRS 42mm. I also tried my Sub no date and it was fine but it never saw much use since that was my daily wearer.

    In any case I would only recommend a cheaper winder if you don't mind the plastic look and chance that it would be noisey. I have since moved to the brookstone winder (generally has good reviews over at TRF) as an option vs. Wolf. Wolf seems to be the gold standard though.

    PS:. If you decide to go with brookstone join their mailing list first. Usually they will send you a coupon. Saved me 25%!

    I've got a bunch of Accuratics, I really like them. $50/each and stackable, i really like that you can daisy chain the power supplies to keep cord clutter to a minimum...I don't think they're being imported anymore, I haven't seen a new one for sale in quite a while

    I buy them on eBay and got one that was a four watch model. I would not spend more than 150 and expect it to die in three or 4 years. Mine is both battery and plug in.

    Look for something with Mabuchi motors.Pangea & Belocia are decent for the $.Also as someone already stated they seem to only last 3-4 years but then they run 7/24 so I guess in the long run that aint to bad...
