The best and most affordable watch winder

watch winder
Watch winders are a great investment if you have an automatic watch. A watch winder will keep your watch running smoothly when you do not wear them over long periods of time. If you do not have a watch winder the date and time on your watch can become out of sync. Automatic watches have a fine oil that lubricates the cogs, levers and springs to keep everything functioning well. Watch winders can come in various sizes from single to multi watch winders depending on your collection size.
Barrington Watch Winders was created in 2009, to give customers the best and most affordable watch winders that ticked all the boxes. This watch winder is one of the best on the market that has all the functionality required, a stylish look and all at an affordable price.
The winder we got was packaged really well and when opening the box everything was nice and neat. The watch winder comes in a dust bag and the winder itself is wrapped up. The power cable comes in small box and the connecting cable comes in a nice velvet envelope. The watch winder itself is really nice as the picture shows above. It works well and keeps our automatic watch in sync.

Specific details:

– Measures 11.5cm (W) x 12cm (H) x 16cm (D)

– Can be operated either by AC mains or two AA batteries.

– Barrington ‘Jump’ feature allows multiple winders to be connected together via connecting cable (supplied) and powered from one AC power source. See pictures.

– Ultra-quiet Japanese motor

– Multiple rotation settings: clockwise, counterclockwise or alternating

– Multiple Turns Per day (TPD) settings from 650, 750, 850, 1,000 or 1,950 to suit any weight of watch

– Choice of cushions: either Standard (suitable for watches with a strap/bracelet circumference of 19cm to 24cm) or Flex (suitable for watches with a strap/bracelet circumference of 14cm to 20cm) NB The standard cushion suits approx 70% of our customers and Flex is preferred if wrist size is slightly smaller

– LED light when operating

– Comes with British 3 pin power adapter as standard (US or European adapter also available and shipped by default if the order is going to one of these areas i.e. if you live in North America we send you a US adapter or if you live in the EU we will send an EU adapter)

They say, “The idea came from the fact that we observed there seemed to be a polarisation in the watch winder market such that the choice seemed to be you could get a winder with all the requisite features but it would cost several hundred pounds or you could pick up something that would be ‘cheap and cheerful’ for £50-£80 but it did not look great and wasn’t always reliable.

The original design has since been modified and improved upon, with the addition of ultra-quiet Japanese Mabuchi motors, as well as a number of extra features designed to conserve battery life. In 2012 we expanded our range to include new products that also offered exceptional value – the Double, Quad, Six and Twelve Watch Winders.

Though our winders continue to evolve and improve from their original designs, we are passionate about our commitment to ensuring that they will always hold true to the principles that we set out for our products at the start: that they should be functional, aesthetically pleasing and reasonably priced.”
