NEW! Evolution Serie MKII
A new generation of electronic watchwinders
- The Mechanism
The frequency and speed of rotation are important factors the ‘evolution’ range has addressed in ensuring the precision workings of your watch are correctly maintained. The oscillations of the winder simulate the motion of the wrist when the watch is being worn. The direction and periodicity of the rotations can be set in nine different programs.
- Rechargeable Battery
The winder is ftted with a rechargeable battery which enables the winder to be operated by battery or by mains supply. When the mains are plugged in to the winder, it will automatically charge the battery. It takes about 3-4 hours for a full charge which enables the winder to operate for about 35- 45 days depending on the programme used.
Why use a watch winder?
An automatic watch has a mechanism that requires regular motion to keep the inner spring constantly charged, this motion is usually provided as it is worn. Once removed from the wrist the stored energy will only run for a short while, depending upon the model, then the watch will need to be manually rewound and reset.
A watch with further ‘complications’, – date/ time/lunar phase/world time etc. the task of rewinding and recalibrating if it runs down is best avoided.
Furthermore, watches of this calibre are precision instruments and like all thoroughbreds they actually beneft from exercise – if left unwound for long periods, internal lubricants can be lost from critical areas which will eventually lead to excessive wear on components and subsequent lack of accuracy.
‘evolution’ watch winders have features designed to mimic the action of a watch being worn. The watch is held at a precise angle while being rotated and the winder can be set to run at the optimum requirement for your particular watch to ensure it is permanently wound.
