Bi-Directional Interval Watch Winder
Women have their shoes and handbags, but what do we guys have? Well, for starters, there is the $199.95 Bi-Directional Interval Watch Winder that does what it says it does – and it does it well, of course. This particular watch winder will allow you to change its direction as well as rest interval so that a self-winding wristwatch will be able to keep accurate time, never mind that it is not worn regularly. I can identify with that, especially with an automatic wristwatch in my collection.
The Bi-Directional Interval Watch Winder is a Swiss-designed device that sports a silent motor which can be set to rotate a watch clockwise or counterclockwise. There will be a quartet of settings that allows it to alternate different periods of rest with three minutes of motion, which translates to approximately 2,200 and 4,000 turns per day. This means the watch rotors regularly power the mainsprings without having to suffer from overwinding issues. Within the central compartment, your precious watch will rest on a padded cushion, where it remains nestled against a smooth simulated leather lining.
