Luxury automatic watches can cost tens of thousands, so protecting and maintaining your investment will ensure the value of your watch will increase over time.
Unless you’re a watch collector then you may not have heard of watch winders. There is a huge market for both luxury watches and their winder counterparts. Having more than one automatic watch and keeping them all charged simultaneously can be a hassle without a winder. Convenience is always created by having your entire watch collection on winders and ready to go.
Watch winders come in all shapes and sizes as well as price. This article will discuss the most exclusive and expensive watch winders in the world. These winders are unique in their design and appearance, sometimes they are completely one-off products.
Let’s start with the most expensive watch winder.
Scatola Del Tempo
This diamond-encrusted watch winder is one of the most expensive money can buy. It currently retails for around $400,000 making it one of the most exclusive watch winders in the world. The exposed gears and polished metals offer an eye-catching display piece for your watches.
Stockinger Brabus SV12
The Stockinger Brabus SV12 is more than just a watch winder, it’s a premium safe designed to keep all your valuables secure. All this protection comes with a hefty price tag though, at $125,000 it isn’t cheap but it’s produced by one of the leading safe manufacturers in the world.
The Gyrowinder is a unique watch winder inspired by NASA’s Gyroscope. This allows the winder to rotate the watch 360 degrees using a calibrated set of weights to correctly balance the watch. Priced at around $14,000 it is a big investment but significantly cheaper than the previously mentioned winder.
The Lumisidus 11
Keeping 11 timepieces accurately wound can be a hassle, that’s where the Lumisidus 11 comes in. This winder can keep all 11 watches operating at full capacity but at $38,000. The winder is plated with 24 karat gold and has its smartphone app which allows the user to control rotation speed and frequency, the LED lights can also change colour. If $38,000 is proving to be too costly then there’s a non-gold alternative at just $22,000, an absolute bargain!
These watch winders are out of reach for the majority of people, alternatively cheaper watch winders are available such as the Rapport watch winders from many reputable suppliers.
