I've just realised that an automatic watch winder is recommended to prevent premature wear so can anyone recommend an automatic watch winder that is not going to break the bank or the watch ?
premature wear? never heard that one. it wears as it runs, and running it all the time on a winder would mean more wear. winders are to keep the time correct when you cycle between a lot of automatics. I would just pull it out when you want to wear it, wind it up, set the time, and then put it away when you are done - especially as rarely as you claim you will be wearing it.
