Austrian luxury brand Buben and Zorweg designed a sophisticated winder for hand wound watches. This must-have piece for every lover of luxury watch winder will ensure that your watch is always wound optimally. The Time Mover Handwound incorporates highly sensitive electronics with sensors that monitor the winding process – ideal for spring maintenance. It has a pair of rubber-coated rollers which turn the crown. They work in much the same way as the thumb and forefinger do when winding the watch.
Sensors monitor the state of the power reserve, and when you first use it, it goes through a learning process to calculate the number of turns required to reach full power. From there, using this information, it monitors the power of the watch, and winds it on a carefully calculated schedule to maintain between a 60-70% power reserve. Additionally, there is a rapid wind function – it winds the watch fully in a couple of minutes – which the owner can activate if he wishes to wear the watch.
Time Mover Handwound is available in Croco style or Ebony Grigio as a table-top device, and is priced at €4,780 ($6,500).
