Dude, get a life!

You completely misread what I posted/intent. Checked out your other posts on SD...seems you do give in to trolling a little too much.

No doubt, we will see a snarky "comeback" now.
You sir... Get the wink and gun Smilie Welcome to the wild world of entertainment.

Contrary to popular belief, they are not impervious to the elements. The weakest point is the seal on the crown especially if the seals are dried/aged. This is why mechanical watches need periodic servicing. Also, more to the other poster's point, if you leave a watch too long, the lubricants can pool and/or degrade thereby leaving some areas dry which can cause the movements to seize.
To be fair, as long as you occasionally wear a watch every once in a while (on the order of months between wear), there's really no benefit to keeping it running constantly. In fact, it's debatable whether it's better to leave a watch unwound between use or to have it running constantly throughout its life.

The primary benefit of a winder is for convenience so that you don't have to constantly reset the time. Though realistically, if your watch is off your wrist for months upon months, even the most accurate watch will need to be re-adjusted.

A secondary benefit is protecting the winding elements from wear, as often they are not particularly robust on an automatic movement. However, you can just spin the rotor a bit to get it going and skip the hand winding entirely.

I have one manual watch that requires winding. Most people don't think watches are worth wearing, but it once saved my grandfather's life when he offered it as a trade during the war and he made sure I purchased myself a watch valuable enough to do the same if I ever need to. I dislike jewelries, but I make sure I wear my watch daily to make sure that I have that and a wedding ring that can go just in case.

Hmm. I have never entertained the thought that I may, during the course fo my normal daily activities, end up in a situation where I might trade a watch for my life. I think you and I lead vary different lives.

I was going to guess you were a gun owner, but the avatar picture gave it away.

How could this be? They are in sealed tight in a compartment impervious to elements. If you were talking about a car I'd understand, but a watch?
a car has a lot of finely tuned precision metal gears that require special lubrication. and a watch is....the exact same thing in a smaller package.

As an aside, if someone wants to kill you, what's to stop them from killing you...then taking your expensive watch and ring? Professional courtesy?

Bought a Maratac Pilot this year, it's self winding though. I don't plan on having it sit around so I don't think I'll need this, I wear it every day.

Is everybody missing the point here or what? He didn't say he traded the watch for his life. He said he used it as trade and what he got saved his life.

The moral is that if society disintegrates (as it happens during times of war) having something valuable on your person at all times (as opposed to carrying thousands of (worthless) dollars in your wallet) could come in handy to barter with. Perhaps for safe travel, food, shelter, or a weapon. Whatever. In case no one is paying attention, the U.S. is becoming quite a hotbed of instability right now. I live rather comfortably myself, but life favors the prepared.

Mine worked fine for a year, then stopped working.
I had to change the battery in my watch.
Winder has been working well again since then.
What kind of battery did you use?!

Pretty sure he said "Grandfather" not him. Probably during WW1/2 or some such. Given that there's no WW going on right now, I agree, you and his grandfather live different lives.

Wolf Designs make very good winders. I spent more on my first winder than most watches I owned at the time.

If you can find one of these for less than $100, that's a pretty slick deal. I recall finding some new old stock items on Ebay a few years back for $75.

Careful purchasing automatic watches... it can become addicting and expensive!
I agree with Auzivision, there are only two winders really worth purchasing. Wolf Designs and Orbita. IMHO all others are of poor quality made in China. Both Wolf and Orbita will stand behind their products. Wolf even seems to warranty beyond their warranty period. I have several swiss automatic watches and these are the only ones I trust any more due to failures of other models. Sometimes you can find deals on select models of Wolf Designs at Overstock.com and Orbita models at sierratradingpost.com

Wolf is way overpriced. There are many out there that work just fine.

I like this one and it's worked well for me...

as well as my cheap Chinese ones... lasted years so far.

While that's truly a great story, I'm not that paranoid that I feel the need to make sure I'm wearing valuable enough items so I can barter at a moments notice. Maybe if I was traveling overseas in a third world country where things could go wrong - but then again with a watch like that you're a target, so probably not.

And who says that 'most' people don't think watches are worth wearing?
