This attractive wooden watch winder is full of features not found in expensive winders. The watch cushion design has two methods of holding watches, accommodating larger watches much better than many other winders. The accessible power, direction, and speed switches make it extremely easy to operate when changing watches. There is no need to access the back of the winder or remove panels to change the winder settings. The winders run quietly using a MABUCHI motor with a high quality belt driven system. The winding technology uses a patented light sensor, and the motor always performs the rotation precisely and returns to the original position. This winder functions based on counts per turns rather than by time, so even heavy watches that will slow down other watch winders will not impact the performance of this winder. The winder's independent control unit allows different winding settings to conform to the requirements of different watch brands and models (clockwise, automatic bidirectional, counterclockwise).
