No need to have it run all the time. I just use my winders when a watch isn't going to get wrist time soon and I was told by my watch guy that any automatic should run for a few days every month.

    Absolutely




















    Nothing, waste of energy. If I want to wear a watch, I pick the one closest to yesterday's date and give it a shake, sometimes I don't bother setting the date.

    I keep the watches that are hardest to set quickly - Moonphases. So I have the Oris Sinatra Classic Complication, WUS Chinese Forum Moonphase Project, and the Christopher Ward C9.

    Re: What's In Your Winder?

    Thanks for the reply. I've not felt the need for a winder yet but wondered why it being wound would be an issue. I have read something about the winder magnetising the watch but does that happen?

    I generally grab a watch set the time and later in the morning, if I notice, set the date.

    Strangely the last 3 days I've been wearing a Quartz but I don't see that as any more convienent than an auto or my one manual winder. Probably more inconvient as when that stops I need to swap batteries.

    Changing a battery every few years is more convenient than taking the watch to a watchmaker to get it serviced.

    My Visodate and Black Ray. Didn't have an individual shot of the winder. I like keeping my watches on a winder and don't care how easy it is to set the time and day/date on them as I would rather grab one and go. Also heard both sides of the winder argument and neither side can prove the other is a bad choice. Keeping a watch on a winder imo is no different than wearing it everyday, that is what they were designed for. Either way it's a matter of opinion and for my watches mine is the only one that matters.

    Socks are designed to be worn on the feet, but what happens if you don't change pairs every once in awhile?
