If you own an automatic watch, that is complex and you hate having to reset it when the power runs out, it’s time to invest in a watch winder, and Orbita — based in North Carolina — has the answer. This company has been making its own watch winders in America since its founding more than 20 years ago by Chuck Agnoff. His creed was to pay attention to detail and provide the best watchwinders in the world. It is a philosophy the family-owned company continues to uphold, despite Agnoff’s passing. With Father’s Day just about a month away, this is an excellent gift for the man who loves watches.
Essentially, a watchwinder is a device designed to keep an automatic watch fully wound. Orbita offers a host of watch winders — from a single winder to a full chest or piece of furniture that holds dozens of watches. Additionally, the styles range from tool-box motifs to exquisite inlaid wood, to art deco and streamlined metal and steel pieces.
