I opted for a 4 winder box with each winder able to be programmed independently in term of revolution per day and also the direction or bi-direction. This is a good website to determine the winding requirements of your watch(es): Un...

I thought I knew quite a lot and then after meeting purists like Miranda, Patrick, Melvyn, Gordon, Richard, Tim and Ming, I realised that I knew very little relatively.

It's not a watchwinder, it's a sculpture in motion ()
