What is a good watch winder?
If you’re not the type to wear a watch every day, or you’ve got a collection of timepieces, you may need an excellent watch winder. Having a quality watch winder operating at the proper setting is one of the best ways to maintain a watch’s accuracy for a long time.
Here are some tips and tricks to pick the right watch winder and keep your watches at peak performance:
The Optimal TPD
TPD stands for turns per day, or, how many full revolutions the winder turns into a 24-hour period. For a watch inside the winder, there is a magic number of turns per day that it needs to run best. Too little TPD, and it doesn’t wind fully. Too many, and you risk wearing it out.
CHIYODA Watch Winder has 4 TPDs(1850-1250-950-650), which makes it highly compatible and can be set to match more watches. It turns at regular intervals to keep the automatic wound and accurate when not on the wrist.
It’s self-explanatory enough, but having a bi-directional watch winder means that every time the winder cycles on, it turns in a different direction. While the majority of watches are just fine in a bi-directional winding unit, some watches have different specifications (like clockwise or counter-clockwise). A good watch winder will have all three settings available.

Magnetic interference can make some watches run fast, requiring a demagnetizer to correct them. Opinions vary on the minimum level of magnetic flux density needed to affect watch operation, but informal consensus online suggests the range is 60-70 gausses.
