You’ve caught the watch-collecting bug, so you’ve gone out and bought a fancy automatic watch. Or two. Or three. Or ten. But an automatic watch will only stay ticking so long as it’s on your wrist. If you don’t want to be shaking your watches and resetting the time every day you rotate to a new one, a good watch winder is in order. And while there’s no shortage of options out there — from cheap single-watch winders under $50 to massive, custom-made vaults costing thousands — finding something that’s high in both quality and value can be a challenge. These are some of the best out there.
