Automatic or self-winding watches are favored by many over quartz watches since they require no batteries to run yet keep excellent time. Automatic watches use the energy created from the motion of the wearer to keep the weights inside the watch moving and keeping time. Consequently, if you don’t wear your watch daily, it will wind down. While you can wind it manually, you will have to keep re-setting the time. Instead, you can use a watch winder — a device that holds one or more watches, with a motor that will rotate the timepieces in a circular fashion to keep them running smoothly. Many watch winders can run on an AC adapter as well as battery, useful for travel. It’s advisable to get one with a timer, since the watches do not need constant agitation which would put excessive wear on the winding mechanism.
