Watch winder

by Dave Haynes


The movement is designed to work both ways and it shouldn't make any difference. I personally don't see the use for a winder unless the watch is some exotic
complicated Patek or something. While it does keep the watch running, it is using up the service life of the watch. If the watch is worn occasionally, the lubrication will get the work it needs and the watch will last longer. I may be all wrong, but all that winding and mainspring slipping just seems to be pointless.
