We don’t usually do that, however we’ve got one thing new and thrilling in our webshop. After I say it’s a watch winder, you’d most likely yawn and transfer on (though the winders from SwissKubik and Scatola del Tempo we’ve got are the best-in-class winders), however we needed to provide you with a warning to the arrival of the newest MONOCHROME version of the super-cool gyroscopic Bernard Favre Planet watch winder.
A commonplace watch winder rotates a watch round one axis. It rotates in a single route, pauses, after which rotates within the different route, repeating this movement eternally. After all, there are variations between the gazillions of selections of watch winders on the market. We went for SwissKubik and Scatola as a result of they’re outfitted with the identical ‘engine’ that runs for 3 years on two commonplace 1.5-volt batteries. That’s tremendous handy, and it even lets you hold a winder in your secure. Helpful with a perpetual calendar! The construct high quality can also be the very best, and all the pieces works easily.
Then again, the Planet Winder is a so-called gyroscopic watch winder. It rotates the watch in a number of instructions, over two axes, mimicking the wrist’s motion. We’ve all the time had a factor for this gyroscopic winder just because it appears to be like so extremely cool. That’s why we reached out to Bernard Favre to speak about his invention. Properly, following our chat, we requested a couple of particular version for MONOCHROME, and he agreed! After some toing and froing, we settled for a barely modified high plate to incorporate the identical small scallops of a Rolex bezel. Not solely is the winder an all-black monochromatic version (like our model title), however it’s also inscribed with “MONOCHROME by Bernard Favre”.
Whereas it may not be essentially the most inexpensive winder in the marketplace, the construct high quality is simply excellent and the winding autonomy – after the inner battery is absolutely charged – is of 120 days. And the cherry on high of the cake is, in fact, its hyper-cool presence.
