    Affordable Winding Box

    I have a handful of automatic watches and it is practically impossible to wear them enough to keep them all running. What is a good affordable winder box? At this point I have 4 automatics, only 2 that I regularly wear. It would be nice to have a box big enough to hold like 6-8 watches total with 2-3 able to be winding.

    I'm not looking to spend $200 to keep them running, however, something under $80 or so would be acceptable. Is this possible? I see some brands on ebay for $50, but I don't know anything about them.

    Brands, models, links, etc????

    Thanks in advance!!!!

    I don't know of any quality double or triple winder that fits your budget, you can just manually wind them up when the power reserve is almost used up... unless you have some crazy complication on them setting the time is pretty painless and quick...

    You can pick up refurbished single orbita sparta for $100 right now from orbita directly...

    also if you do a search here you will find quite a few posts about winders, a couple posters here sell quality winders at discounted prices, but like I said if you're looking at a double or triple, there isn't any good ones under $80... no way...

    You can get nice looking 8 watch winders with additional storage at E-Bay for around 200.
    They're quiet and will last a yr or 2 maybe if you're careful with them.
