I bought this winder about a year or so ago and it's been great. No problems whatsoever. It's a very well-made piece of equipment. I wouldn't say it's totally silent, but it's silent enough. Unless you're actively listening for a sound, you won't be aware of its operation.

    Great budget winder, not many complaints for this price... except that mine broke after about 10 months of weekend use. The internal drive key became separated from the drive shaft.

    It does not fit larger watches. I also do not like having to plug in the very large transformer.

    The Sparta 1 Mini works flawlessly...it is easy to use (a no brainer) just remove the 'Cup' the watch cushion and then with your watch bracelet or strap in the closed position, squeeze the cushion flat side up and insert it into your bracelet or strap and center it on the cushion (doesn't have to be perfectly centered) then place it in the 'Cup' again and with the heavy side down (the metal rotor down which you can see on inside back of the 'Cup') and re-insert it into the winder. Turn on the rocker switch on the back of the unit and go relax...the winder does the rest. It cannot overwing your automatic watch. Be advised it does get warm inside the winder and this is normal (its an electric motor). Also note it runs continuously; meaning it does not have an 'ON' / 'OFF' state (not to be confused with an on/off switch). The motor rotates for approximately 180 degres then the 'torque shaft' aligns with the rotor drive and drives the rotor/cup for another 180 degrees until 'gravity takes over and the cup swings freely "Winding your Watch" until it runs out of inertia and then the process starts all over. I timed mine and it takes exactly 12 minutes for a full cycle, which is actually better for my watch since it requires approximately 650 TPD (turns per day). Keep in mind the free swing time varies with weight of your watch; a heavier watch will swing less time than a lighter watch so your TPD may vary. But on average it will be enough to keep your watch wound. Be sure you wind your watch fully before placing it on the winder the first time.
    The mechanics of this unit are high quality and meant to last years. Made in the U.S.A. buy one you will be glad you did!

    This well regarded winder usually retails for about $250 and for $110 is a real steal.

      3.) The Sparta 1 Mini runs continuously; meaning it does not have an 'ON' / 'OFF' state (not to be confused with an on/off switch). The motor rotates for approximately 180 degrees then the 'torque shaft' aligns with the rotor drive and drives the rotor/cup for another 180 degrees until 'gravity takes over and the cup swings freely "Winding your Watch" until it runs out of inertia and then the process starts all over. I timed mine and it takes approximately 10 minutes for a full cycle, which equates to approximately 650 TPD (turns per day).
      So to answer your question; no it does not rotate your watch continuously, it rotates your watch through 180 degrees over a 5 minute period, then it swings for about 1 minute and then rests for 5 minutes until the torque shaft engages the rotor drive again and the cycle starts over.
      Be sure you wind your watch fully before placing it on the winder the first time.
      It cannot over-wing your automatic watch. Be advised it does get warm inside the winder; this is normal (it’s an electric motor).
