I bought this watch winder for my husband who has an automatic watch that winds through movement. Unfortunately, we had to return it. When the winder first arrived, we put my husband's watch inside the winder and left it for 2 days. After 2 days my husband's watch had died. The movement the winder provides is incorrect to keep his watch wound. My husband's watch needs to be rotated with back and forth movement--for example, if the watch is worn on the wrist, it's the back and forth movement that occurs when rotating the wrist so that the palm faces up, then down, then up, that charges the watch. Unfortunately, the winder does not provide this same movement. Rather, the watch simply circles clockwise and counter-clockwise as if holding the watch by the face and spinning it like a screw top cap to open or close. It's too bad as the case is very nice looking. The case is larger than I expected from the photo. The motor is not entirely silent when the lid is down but it is very faint.

I bought this watch winder in rosewood and boy does it look nice on my dresser. I bought myself a new rolex gmt master ii for christmas and needed a watch winder to keep my watch ready and set for wearing during the days that i wear my tag.

I like that this winder can be used with the casing and by itself. The outer casing is beautifully crafted. Winder is silent when lid is closed. Orbita customer service is great when I asked for smaller pillow. They shipped it promptly.
This is a brilliant watchwinder at a great price.
The only one I could find that is small and stacks neatly without the case yet has the option of using the quality case.
2 year warranty and 5 years on the batteries.
Great support from the manufacturers too.
