    I have a Wolf winder which has been good so far. A quality winder will not scratch your bracelet.

    I bought first a cheap one from eBay, it broke down under two years. Then I got a Wolf Cub, and been very satisfied.

    Every winder I've ever used gave up the ghost after ~2 years, even the Wolf that my wife bought for me. Well, actually it still works but it's much too loud now. I sort of wish it would just die.

    That seems like a very poor batting average. Do you switch off the winder module before removing a watch? Not doing so can damage the winder.

    Yes I do. Luckily, most of my automatic watches now are vintage so I don't keep those running.
