Watch snobs would never resort to a timepiece
powered by batteries, but self-winders must
be worn to remain accurate. If you have ever
realized your favorite watch has stopped due to
inactivity, take a look at this unique solution.
TEX T BY BILL LINDSEY
Watchmakers advise that watches be kept running for optimal
operation and to display the correct time. However, as anyone
who owns more than one self-winding timepiece can attest,
that is easier said than done, even if you wear a different watch
each day. A watchwinder is the answer, but not all are created
equal. The firm of Döttling is renowned for winders that combine
art with cutting-edge technology. A great example is their
Gyrowinder; it features the ability to rotate the watch a full
360 degrees and can adjust the oscillation to meet virtually any
specific winding requirements. It looks like of a piece of NASA
equipment, which is no surprise…it was inspired by the massive
gyroscope used to train astronauts at Kennedy Space Center.
You’ll be mesmerized to observe it in action as it maintains the
readiness of your watch; Dottling.com.
