Is a watch crown winding tool worth it?

I鈥檝e been thinking about getting a watch crown winding tool, just to make it easier to wind my watches. Is it worth getting one?

Not sure. Might pick on up just to feel fancy. You definitely don鈥檛 NEED one right? Is it worth? Depends on how much the cost effects you personally

Is there something wrong with your index finger & thumb?

It can't be that hard to use your fingers...

That's what the Mrs. says too ;)

Sorry, is this a thing? Can you post a picture of a crown winding tool?

the metal ones mark the crown flutes

I did get one for the smaller vintage crowns which are harder to grasp

This reminds me of the Simpsons episode where Troy Mclure advertises the picture straightening gloves!

I got one recently because a couple of crowns on my watches are a bit small for my hands. This really helped, and I鈥檓 glad I bought one. I agree with the previous post regarding ones that have metal grippers. Mine has plastic, and was inexpensive on Amazon.

No. I鈥檓 just lazy.
