The beautiful watch winders of Bernard Favre

Switzerland is the country specialized in producing high end watches. Therefore it's quite logical that also high end watch winder brands produce their luxury accessory to wind automatic watches in this beautiful country. A few brands are worldwide famous like Swiss Kubik, RDI and Bernard Favre. This last brand offers probably the most exciting way of winding a watch. The first time we saw the Bernard Favre Planet watch winders we were amazed. This Swiss brand manages to combine absolute top quality with a very original method of winding. It's not only a watch winder, it's a piece of art. You can look hours to the beautiful motion, which is also functional as it supplies energy to your watch. With different programs in terms of rotation direction and TPD (turns per day) each Bernard Favre Planet watch winder is suitable to wind any watch, regardless brand or model.

Orbita watch winders - still going strong

In the US there are some watch winder brands from which Orbita is the most known and probably the best in terms of quality. Watch adepts all know the Orbita watch winders are reliable devices to wind an automatic watch. The advantage of this brand is that it offers a watch winder in different price ranges. You can buy a very expensive Orbita watch winder but also a version for 400-500 USD. Especially the Rotorwind versions are very popular in the US. These watch winders have a clean design, strong motors and very good functionality. The price/quality ratio is very good and therefore a good choice. 

Orbita Sparta 2 watch winder

In Europe Orbita is less known, but some specialist watch winder shops offer a complete collection. One of our favorite models is the Sparta 2. This model is not fancy looking but does focus on the most important aspect: winding your watch. 

When you have more money to spend Orbita offers many beautiful watch winders completely made out of wood, with a luxury interior and great looking design. A reason why many watch lovers have an Orbita watch winder at home.

New: Boda Concept watch winders

New watch winder brands always attract our attention. Because there are not that many brands, and new players on the market are seldom successful. We believe that Boda Concept can be a new brand that will excite us. Our first impression of the watch winders is that they are solid, almost silent and have nice details. We tested two pieces in our office for one week and after this week winding one Breitling Navitimer and an Seiko 5 we can say that it's working perfectly. 

Boda Concept watch winder

The Boda Concept watch winders are easy to control, have a good watch holder system and do rotate fluently. The price level (between 450-1500 USD) is very acceptable and will be very interesting for those who buy their first or second watch winder. The watch winders are suitable to wind any automatic watch, regardless brand or model. And that's positive as there are still brands on the market which produce watch winder which cannot be adjusted for a specific watch. 

Good job Boda Concept! We hope to hear more about this brand and receive feedback from readers who purchased one, so we can have a complete summary of how the feedback from the market is.
