    Who owns mechanicals and don't use a watch winder?

    Just curious who owns several mechanical watches but doesn't own a watch winder? I for one owns 9 Swiss mechanicals but still haven't got myself a decent watch winder yet. Am I the only one?

    I have 9 autos and a couple of quartz. No winder. It hasn't been a problem for me to date. Plus, i figure if i have to have an electrical device keeping my mechanicals charged i might as well just have all quartz.

    I have a cheap 2 watch winder but at it's peak (volume-wise at least) my collection of automatic watches was about 4 or 5 times that.

    No winder. Can't see the use for it as it takes only a few sec's to wind them up manually.
    If I were to get myself a perpetual calendar I'll reconsider.

    5 winding slots available (a 4 head & a single head) with a few dozen automatics. Watches with a day/date feature that are worn frequently stay on the winder for convenience. Other than that, it's the same procedute to set and wind an auto as a manual, and no mechanical watch is accurate enough to avoid being reset every month or two anyway.

    No winder, many, many automatics. No desire to have one.

    Agree with all posted so far - unless you have a perpetual calendar, which takes forever to setup, not much use for me. All but one of the watches around are automatics - winding them takes seconds

    2 automatics and no winder, I will never buy one unless I have enough of money to buy the IWC Grand Complication which needs a constant power reserve to maintain its ultra complicated calendar mechanism.

    12 mechanicals and no winder. I like setting my watches manually. I have one quartz that I can grab and run if ever I am in too much of a hurry.
