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.
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.
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.
