New State of the watch winder technology

If one were to ask a serious watch collector about the best watch winder technology available, his answer would certainly be BUBEN&ZORWEG. The German luxury brand, founded almost 20 years ago, is at the top of its game for quite some time now and it seems that it intends to keep that world leading position.

 

BUBEN&ZORWEG now decided to take its renowned watch winder technology to a new level. Already considered to be the most advanced of its kind, the BUBEN&ZORWEG TIME MOVER® was recently upgraded with a set of new features that render it even more advanced and adapted to the particular demands of today’s most rare and precious self-winding wristwatches.

In collaboration with specialist partner brand ELMA the development process took a team of 10 specialists 2 and a half years of intense research and development. The result is a state of the art Watch Winder Technology that caters to the most demanding collectors and passionate watch aficionados in the world.

The new TIME MOVER® technology now features even less operating sound and energy consumption coupled with greater durability through the use of special ball bearings and new materials that performed flawlessly during endurance tests lasting up to 40,000 hours – the equivalent of an operating lifetime of 45 years.

The watch holders in particular were the topic of meticulous attention by the R&D team. This crucial component of the BUBEN&ZORWEG TIME MOVER® system, more elegant than ever, can now accept self-winding watches with cases of up to 60 mm in diameter, and even examples with prominent crowns will fit the new watch holder.

Not only fine examples of watchmaking with bigger cases like the Royal Oak Offshore from Audemars Piguet or the Master Compressor Diving Pro by Jaeger-LeCoultre, but also watches for smaller mens and ladies wrists will find the new watch holder adaptability particularly tailored to their specific needs.

Also among the extensive list of new features incorporated into the new BUBEN&ZORWEG Watch Winder Technology is the new Safety Catch Mechanism. A particularly practical and convenient arrangement that allows the watch holder to be safely and easily clicked into position.

Added to its already advanced multiple programmable functions, the new features of the latest generation TIME MOVER® are tangible proof that the road to the top is built on a unique idea, and that staying at the top means continuously improving the tried and tested.
