Bernard Favre Planet double-axis watch winder

There are several Swiss watch winder brands, and one of the best is Bernard Favre. This brand creates high end watch winders made of beautiful materials. But even more special is the way how they wind an automatic watch.

Bernard Favre Planet watch winder

Bernard Favre’s double-axis Planet watch winders keep your automatic watches wound at an optimal level so that they are ready to wear at a moment’s notice. They look fantastic and are mesmerizing to watch in operation. They are a piece of art.

Unlike many watch winders on the market, the double-axis Bernard Favre Planet does not overwind watches thanks to the nine program options, ensuring an optimal winding setting for any automatic watch. There is even an eye-catching exhibition program if drawing attention to a featured watch is the aim. A concealed switch in base selects programs, while a slot for a USB key allows for loading custom winding programs adapted to your watch’s calibre. This makes the Bernard Favre watch winder a perfect watch winder for those watch collectors with watches from Breitling, Omega, IWC, Patek, Tag Heuer etc etc.

The Bernard Favre Planet double-axis watch winder is made to the highest Swiss standards and features a black sandblasted base with leather option, and with polished, black or gilded stainless steel rotation rings. The quiet, high-efficiency Swiss made motor runs for three months on a single charge on the standard program and is ultra-silent thanks to acous-tically-sealing O-rings in the base. The battery is quickly charged by a simple USB cable and can be left permanently connected. An elegant glass dome both protects the watch from dust and curious hands as well as adding to the mystery of the kinetic ballet within.

Each Bernard Favre watch winder comes with 2 years warranty, manual and adapter. The watch winder is very easy to use, gives a beautiful view on the watch and is made of the best materials. As a real watch collector what do you need more?

Buben & Zorweg Illusion watch winder

Buben & Zorweg calls it a Masterpiece, a word that perfectly echoes what the Illusion is all about. Within the impressive facade of its towering silhouette, one discovers a fascinating and unusual design that blends cutting edge innovative technology with a fine selection of highest-quality materials. Considered by many as a sculptural piece of modern design in its own right, the Illusion has a hidden purpose that most observers cannot immediately discern. A purpose that might seem like an unexpected illusion capable of playing with one‘s senses!

As is often the case in daily life, there are occasions when one wants to protect certain valuables - watches, jewellery, accessories, or perhaps documents or cash, without the effort of going to a safe. Place it on a desk, in a dressing room or use it as an eye-catcher in the living room just for the pleasure of its owner. It blends in perfectly.  That is, until the hidden safe is unlocked by way of a fingerprint or a transponder chip and the contents rise elegantly upwards as if touched by magic.

With the Illusion, Buben & Zorweg's passion for innovative design finds clear expression in many details, such as the drawers that pivot outwards to one side to present you with their contents. And if one would like to swap a favourite watch during the day? No problem; two or, if prefered, four watch winders in the table safe make it easy to store and select the right choice.

Since its launch, the Illusion has held a presence in the most prestigious and exclusive exhibitions around the world. This illustrious World Tour will now see the Masterpiece exhibited in the esteemed SIAR, the „Salon Internacional de Alta Relojeria“ in Mexico City between the 15th and the 17th of October. From this first-class reference point for Haute Horlogerie events in America, the ILLUSION will then travel to Dusseldorf, Germany, where the newly created Watchtime Dusseldorf exhibition will take place from the 25th to the 27th of October.

The new Benson Black Series Pro watch winders

One of the best watch winder brands that offer a very good price/quality ratio is Benson. This Dutch brand is one of the most promising brands in the field of watch winders. The brand combines quality with sustainability and functionality.

This Dutch watch winder brand recently presented its latest models in the Black Series Pro collection. This collection contains watch winders with an extra large capacity for winding automatic watches. The Pro 12.19 and 16.19 models are suitable to wind 12 or 16 watches. The news is that Benson will soon be presenting two new models that are suitable for winding up 20 and 24 automatic watches. These new models have the same design and technology as the current Benson Black Series Pro models. 

The Benson Black Series Pro watch winders are characterized by a sleek and modern design, state-of-the-art technology, touch screens, LED lighting and individual control for each winder. This allows you to wind each watch individually according to the direction of rotation and the number of revolutions per day. The watch holder is adjustable so that it is suitable for every type of watch. You can wind watches from Rolex, Omega, Breitling, Patek, IWC etc etc. These watch winders from Benson will wind any automatic watch, regardless brand or model. 

The strong glass door of the Benson Black Series Pro watch winders offers a perfect view of the rotating watches and is also lockable by a key. On the inside of the watch winder you will find two touch screens to adjust each rotor individually and a drawer in which extra watches or other jewelry can be stored.

Benson Black Series Pro watch winder

For the true watch enthusiast, a watch winder is a must have. However, for the real collector, a large watch winder with space for many automatic watches is a requirement. With the Benson Black Series Pro watch winders you have all watches directly available, safely stored and always ready to wear immediately, without having to wind the watch manually first. This not only saves a lot of time, but also improves the durability of the watch. After all, for manual winding and setting the time correctly you have to open the crown. The crown is one of the most vulnerable parts of a watch and you prefer to open and close as little as possible.

The Benson Black Series Pro watch winders are currently available for 12 and 16 watches, in the exterior colors black and carbon fiber. The new models that are suitable for 20 and 24 automatic watches and will be available soon. We already tested the version for 16 watches, and when the new models are as good they will be hard to resist for the watch collector who wants the best for his or her watches.
