Thirded or fourthed or whatever. Don't bother.

Wolf is sometimes well regarded. Why not go all out?

Wait a minute here... do your homework.

A few basic questions need to be self addressed before you solicit credible advise.
1. What wrist do you wear your watch on right, left or other?
2. Do you live in the northern hemisphere, southern hemisphere or Australia?
3. Do your timepieces require appropriate couture coordination?
4. Do you have access to 3 phase circuitry?
5. Do babies want to ingest your timepieces like skittles?
6. How many times a day do you change your timepiece?
7. Is the watch worn on your spanker paw?
8. How many of your timepieces weigh over 2 pounds?
9. Does your partner wear your timepieces?
10. How long can you hold your breath?

Normally I just have my valet wind and set whichever I intend to wear. Can't yours be trained?

Sticking your wartch on a winder is akin to leaving your car idle all night long so you won't have to start it in the morning.

I would only consider a winder if I had a watch with numerous complications. It would save me from resetting them all every time I wore it after the power reserve wore out.
