Is a watch winder more harmful or beneficial?

Post by agong »

I've always wanted to get a watch winder, not only for the practical winding of watch, but it looks really nice having a watch in it! But I've read somewhere that watch winder can be harmful since it might induce some magnetic field or influence to the watch that might affect the watch's accuracy. Is this true? What are some things to look out for when buying a watch winder? Thank you so much!

Ooo. Thanks for the info! So the Piccolo watch winder has no magnetic field. And indeed it will be helpful in the lifespan of the watch!
