The compact and stylish Barrington single watch winder offers an elegant and efficient way to keep a single timepiece wound while you're not wearing it. Available in a range of striking colours, Barrington's £99 watch winder combines a simple, classic design with quality precision engineering that includes an ultra-quiet Japanese motor and multiple rotation settings.
The single watch winder applies a gentle rotation method to wind watches. Unlike some other winders on the market & particularly older models & Barrington's products don't rotate continuously, as this can lead to overwinding and potentially damage watch mechanisms. Instead, Barrington watch winders pause regularly between each one-minute rotation cycle, as well as resting for 12 hours in every 24. This means you can be sure that your watch is never at risk of being overwound.
When initially turned on the rotor turns for 1 minute before pausing. The length of the pause is determined by the Turns Per Day setting (a lower TPD setting will mean a longer pause and vice versa) and once it is completed the rotor turns again for just 1 minute. This cycle continues silently for 12 hours, then rests for 12 hours, before beginning again and so on until the watch winder is turned off.
If the Direction setting is set to clockwise then the rotor will always rotate in a Clockwise manner; the same principle applies if the Direction setting is set to Anti-Clockwise. However, if the Direction setting is set to the third setting, Alternately Clockwise/Anti-Clockwise, the first 1 minute rotation will be Clockwise, the next 1 minute rotation will be Anti-Clockwise and so on, ensuring your watch gets a balanced, yet gentle, rotation.
Barrington single winders can be set to rotate clockwise, anti-clockwise or alternating, and can be switched to 650, 750, 850 or 1,000 turns per day to suit any weight of watch.
