How To Use A Watch Winder
Watch winders are useful tools for people who have automatic or self-winding watches; they keep your watches running smoothly when you’re not wearing them.
If you don’t wear your automatic watch every day and keep it in motion, it will stop and, if it has been stopped for some time, it might become damaged.
Using a watch winder can ensure that your watch is properly and regularly wound and running, even when you’re not using it.
If you’re new to watch winders, today’s blog post is for you, as we’re going to go through how to use a watch winder correctly, as well as some of the top-quality watch winders that we have in stock at Leonard Dews.
1. You can’t put a stopped watch in a watch winder. If your watch has already stopped, you’ll need to wind it manually first – about 40 turns of the crown will do.
2. Before you can put your watch in, you’ll need to remove the cuff from the watch winder. Once you have done that, you can securely place your watch around the cuff. Then, turn the cuff over and compress it, allowing you to fasten your timepiece around it. Put the cuff into the winder.
3. Your watch manual should be able to tell you how many turns per day (TPD) your watch needs, and in which direction, but a general rule of thumb is that automatic watches need roughly 650 TPD. Most watches can be turned either clockwise or anti-clockwise. Once your watch is in and the TPD and direction is set, you can turn the winder on.
4. Check your watch every now and then to make sure it is telling the correct time. If it isn’t, you may need to amend the TPD.
