The Manual Wind: Barrington Watch Winders

Barrington winder
red_watch_winder_lhsOne of the few burdens of being a multiple mechanical watch owner is time setting.  Peer amongst the collection, match your timepiece to that days activities and dress, now walk around with it showing the incorrect time and date for a few hours; we have all done it.  The device that solves this simple first world problem is the watch winder.  This tiny box, or sometimes ornate piece of furniture, will both keep your watch lubricated and ready for wear right out of the gate.

yellow_watch_winder_frontOne thing about as absurd as wearing an unset watch is watch winder pricing.  Some of these tiny motors in a box can go for as much as $3,000 for a single watch winder and don’t bother asking once multiples come into play.  Finding a well priced quality winder is a challenge.  Barrington is a company that has recognized this challenge and taken it on.

Offering single as well as multi-watch winders, Barrington has found a balance of price and quality.  Requirements for a quality watch winder are programability, compactness, quiet motors, multiple power supplies, and of course the ability to fit any watch.  Barrington has checked this list off even with their single watch winders.

Spin settings include both clockwise and counter clockwise rotation with the option for rotations per day to accommodate specific movements.  With the ability to run off wired power as well as AA batteries, these compact single winders will be the centerpiece of any closet or office or  can do their job securely locked up in your safe.

With the Barrington single watch winder priced at roughly $170, you wont have to pass up on this years watch purchase to afford one.
