The best watch winder brands of 2020

The last 5 years we wrote many articles and blogs about watch winders. Especially about their quality, design and functions. Our intention is to give more information about watch winder brands, their technique, functionality and price/quality ratio. Thereby we like to share news about innovations, fairs and new watch winder models.

The question we often receive is which watch winder brand is the best. The answer is not easy to give. Simply because there are a lot of good brands in different price segments. On the other hand there are also many brands in different price segments which offer not the best quality. To answer the question as good as we can we have listed our most favorite watch winder brands per price segment in this blog article: the best watch winder brands 2020. Hopefully we make your search for a good watch winder a little bit more easy.

Up to 250 euro

This price category has only a few brands which produce really good watch winders. Most watch winders under 250,00 euro are not that good and are sold by Amazon, Ebay or Aliexpress. Nevertheless we know there are a few watch winder brands, with also more expensive watch winders in their collection, that produce good quality watch winders for a fair price. Two brands we want to mention are Benson (Netherlands) and Boda (Hong Kong). These both brands are well known as watch winder brand and we tested several watch winders of them several times. The outcode of our tests is that these watch winders offer a great price/quality ratio.

250-1000 euro

This price segment is probably the most important segment as most watch adepts are able and willing to spend an amount between 250,00 and 1000,00 euro. In this price segment there are many good watch winder brands. We already discussed Benson and Boda Concept, and both these brands offer great watch winders in this price segment also. But we also want to mention Swiss Kubik (Switzerland), RDI (Switzerland), Paul Design (Hong Kong) and Heisse & Söhne (Germany). These brands are quite popular and offer many watch winder models, for example for 2, 4, 6 and 8 automatic watches. These brands all offer durable motors, solid technique and all functions you need to wind any automatic watch.

1000-5000 euro

When you have a nice amount to spend on a watch winder you can choose for absolute quality and great designs. We would like to mention Bernard Favre with their Planet watch winders which offer a unique and special way of winding automatic watches. But also Kunstwinder from the US offers watch winders of a very special kind. They use the best materials and did create beautiful designs which don’t even look as a regular watch winder. They wind all automatic watches in the most unique and spectacular way. Don’t forget Orbita, also based in the US. The Orbita watch winders are very popular in the US and are now getting more and more popular in the rest of the world. With their patented technique (Rotorwind) Orbita offers great value for money. Especially when you look at their beautiful watch winders built-in wooden cabinets.

5000+ euro

There are also watch winder brands which offer watch winders with prices above 5000,00 euro. These brands offer watch winders in very special designs and made of beautiful materials. Mostly these watch winders are hand crafted and have Swiss motors. Orbita watch winders offers several watch winder models above 5000,00 euro, but mostly with a big capacity. For example when you want to wind 24 watches an Orbita watch winder is a great choice as you get a beautiful cabinet to wind all automatic watches together in a great furniture piece.

King of all watch winder brands is Buben & Zörweg from Austria. They have a range of standard watch winders but mostly produce on request of clients with special demands. For example with a built-in safe, gun storage or hidden compartment. They can make everything you like. With all kinds of materials you prefer. Are this common watch winders? No…these watch winders are very special and therefore very expensive. Most watch adepts rather spend their money on a great watch than such a beautiful watch winder.
