Ok. I haven't quite stepped into the REAL watch game yet however am getting closer. That said, I fancy a few Breitlings and one or two Omega's. I'm learning a lot on here and because I wouldn't be wearing the watch daily, would it be smart to put one of these watches on a watch winder? I realize I'm not being very specific, just talking in generalities.

Didn't I address that in the first post of this thread?

Hi Roffensian, thank you for the excellent article, I have a question based on this:

"This is probably the most common question, and it’s probably the easiest to answer. One of the major winder manufacturers – Orbita, provides a database of watches and movements with information about how many tpd and which direction. The database can be found here - http://www.orbita.net/database-search/"

Are the figures quoted the amount required to keep the watch wound to the point it was placed onto the winder?

I am assuming it is the case, so for example my Chronomat GMT requires 800tpd, is this figure purely a maintaining requirement?

Thanks
Eddie

Yes, as I noted in the first post winders are designed to add 24 hours of reserve in a 24 hour period so if you put a watch on a winder set to the number of tpd it needs it will have the same reserve when you take it off as when you put it on.

Sorry, I should have reread your article, been busy looking over the many options for winders.

Thanks for confirming
