Few days ago I posted the thread on the delivery of my latest watch the Vacheron Constantin Traditionelle Perpetual Chronograph.
It came with a special winder for manual winding watches.
Initially I was curious how it would work and to be honest, I was a bit skeptical.
But the device works like clockwork. And not only that, it is designed in such a way that it is a show piece as well (what else to expect from Vacheron)
You have to pull the lever outwards, place the watch on placeholder and gently release 5he lever such that the crown is placed inside a special made hole that “grabs” the crown
Once the lever is fully released the engine starts running* and winds the crown until the spring has reached a certain torque level, it then unwinds it 2 circles and that’s it. Then every 24 hours the crown is wound again until you remove the watch
A magnificent device which looks great
