Does An Automatic Watch Need A Winder?

Are automatic watches necessary? In short, the answer is "Yes!" An automatic winder is a mechanical device designed to hold a regular self-winding watch when not in use.

Automatic watches, also known as self-winding watches, do not have batteries like their counterparts, meaning they will run out if not worn regularly. The best watch winder cases ("beste watch winder etui" in Norwegian) can be found online.

This watch winder solves that problem by keeping the watch durable and ready to use when you need it. The automatic watch winder mimics the movement of the wearer's wrist by periodically rotating the watch.

While some say these rollers are unnecessary, others argue that the watch is more of a luxury than a necessity, they are useful for keeping the watch in top condition at all times.

Since many automatic watch brands are very expensive, the price of the watch is not a major concern for many watch owners. The obvious conclusion is that if you can afford an expensive designer watch, then the cost of producing a watch that can rotate your watch automatically may not be a big deal for you.

It's no surprise that some dialers are priced competitively with the most expensive watches designed for them. While watch winders can run for around $50 or less, multi-watch units can cost several thousand dollars.
