I have been toying with the idea of a Bulova Accutron. 8)

Inexpensive and effective. Only downside is it doesn't have a built in timer.

I get round that by fitting it to a clockwork light timer you use when away on holiday :cheers

Why would you need a timer, does the watch winder not just 'turn/move' intermittently to keep the watch at the correct time?

Aren't you supposed to give us a 'Boag shot' of the new watch before you ask about winders?

I have a Wolf (https://www.wolf1834.co.uk/item/456002/ ... ers-cover/) that's excellent but not cheap. I didn't buy it, although I probably did pay for it. Has a timer and rotates in both directions. It sits next to my bed and it's really quiet.

Ha-ha, that's not my style Gary.

Can I pop round one night to have a look at your winder please? Also how about exchanging the books that we spoke about previously.

I will give you a shout when I get home and maybe you might have your car back by then.

Ps. Thank you very, very much for what you did yesterday. :cheers

You're never going to believe me, but I had typed in this before I noticed my mistake; Can I pop round and look at your wonder please? :damnfunny

Is 'cycling' the new code word now Gary? :lol:

This one being relatively cheap rotates the whole time it's switched on, and I use it when away offshore/abroad so weeks at a time, and a watch should only be wound a few hours each day.

It operates silently, but the clockwork timer doesn't :damnfunny which isn't an issue for me as I have it set up in the office at home, and only when I'm not there so doesn't affect me :blackeye

Having a look through the Classic Car Auction and dropped down to the watch section.

Think this looks really cool but then I do not know watches :wink:

I have a soft spot for these, you have to be careful as they were designed for a 1.3v battery. If you stick a 1.5v battery in it and the tuning fork is close to bottom limit in thickness it will run fast. First transistor watch too. It nearly became the moon watch.

On the Watch Winder (or is it wonder) front.....I need a winder but needs to be able to hold minimum 3 watches....any recommendations... I bought a 2 watch winder off fleabay a couple of years ago but it packed in after 6 months and of course the seller was no longer around.......

FYI I do not want to pay the price of a half decent watch on a winder.....
