Watch Winder Box

Good Day WC Friends,

What are your thoughts on winder boxes? my collection is growing and I need proper storage.  how Important are winder boxes? What are the Pros and cons?

·

In the beginning I thought it’s super essential but its not, it’s nice to have but I don’t think it’s necessary. It’s vital when you have a super complicated watch and it’s a pain to adjust the time then, Yes it’s vital in my book. I find most winders are bulky and can only hold a few watches, unless you have a big enough space for winders I guess it’s ok…

·

I have one, and I use it everyday. I tend to switch out watches a few times a week, so I keep one on the winder and the other on my wrist. The rest of the collection is in a safe and rotate them out. I have an Orbita Siena 1 like the picture below and have zero complaints.

To each their own, but (and I'll preface this with I've never owned one) the only situation I would find one useful is like @Ichibunz said, if I had a super complicated watch that required more than about a minute to re-setup the time/date/calendar/moonphase complications.

I tend to have the moon phase and GMTs on winders.  The simple time only sit in a watch case.

That’s what I was thinking as well.   Thank you fir the great insight.

That’s a great idea.   Store most and rotate the ones you are using.   Thank you.

This is helping a ton.   Thank you

I'd like one as it's a pain to set anything with more than a date complication. Day date could maybe do with one but I can just about live with it!

·

I actually like winding and setting my watch in the morning, so they're not really important to me.

i agree with that.  Maybe store most in a box and have a winder or two.

Thank you.   I don’t mind either

I picked up a humidifier motor and transformer to build a multi watch winder. Its the only thing slow enough to work but strong enough to spin a bunch of watches.

I have a multi-watch winder. I'll turn on the winder for specific watches to keep them going if I have plans to wear a few of them throughout the week (I don't need to wind every watch that's in the there). If not, it's OK to just keep them stored in there without turning the winder on.

That sounds awesome.   I’d like to see it if you have pics.
