I searched the forum and found a few discussions on winders for automatic watches. Mostly they were either items for sale, or discussions on whether a cheap winder can damage a watch.
Anyway, I hope my question has not been addressed already and I apologize if it has. The concept of a winder is pretty simple and I don't understand why they are so expensive. I'm wondering if there are any inexpensive winders that are considered safe and reliable. After all, they are just a motor and a timer. Thanks for any recommendations.
The ones that were mentioned in the forum were orbita (expensive), steinmart, wolf, boxy, and brookstone. Any thoughts on these or others? There are lots of double winders on ebay for under $100.
