    Default Watch winder or not?

    Hi guys. Just wondering whether a Rolex should be placed in a watch winder for continuous motion or shld I let it stop running?

    I seldom wear my Rolex or I have a few to rotate. Just wondering if I placed all my Rolex in a watch winder will it increase the wear and tear and this results in a higher need to service the watch as the watch is running continuously.

    Thanks

    You are not wrong. If you do not wear your ROLEX watch often and if it is not a hassle for you to set it running whenever you use it, then don't leave it on a switched-on winder.

    If we do not put the watch in winder, will it affect the accuracy as time passes?

    Put or don't put (in a winder), the time accuracy of an automatic movement watch will still be affected over time. You just have to service the watch to maintain its accuracy.

    Have been collecting for years and never used a winder, never saw the need if you rotate your watches on a regular basis and I prefered to put the money into my next watch purchase!

    If you read enough here, you will not need to ask this question. Here's one of it:

    if letting the watch stop frequently, instead of using the winder to keep it going, is it good or bad?

    Its a strange question.

    Watches displayed at THG, for example, are all static... when the sales person picks it up and move it to show the customer, it'll somehow wind the watch a little and it starts moving. So when customer selects another watch, the previous one will be placed back and remain static again...and eventually stop.

    So does this mean buying from THG is bad or good?
