Assembly of the two winders was a breeze. Connector easily slid into both winders and locks down with a screw in each winder. The LCD control is back-lit for easy viewing, and the Turns/Day and Winding Direction easily set.
I checked the two winders on my setting which is 1200 TPD, bi-directional. For the details I'll call the winders "A" and "B". Here's what I found.
If you start the winders at 9:00 they will start a winding cycle at the top of every hour; that is, at 10:00, 11:00, etc. they'll start a winding cycle again. For the 1200 TPD setting they both wound for six minutes and twenty-five seconds. The first full 6:25 was in the clockwise direction only. The next winding cycle went counter-clockwise for 6:25 as well. So in the bi-directional setting, you have 12 winding cycles going CW, 12 cycles going CCW in a 24-hour period. Both winders operated VERY quietly and smoothly, and both turned slightly slower in the CCW direction.
*** Winder "A" ***
CW Cycle had 50.6 turns in 6:25 for a rotational rate of about 7.9 Turns/Minute, 607 CW Turns/Day.
CCW Cycle had 50.4 turns in 6:25 for a rotational rate of about 7.9 Turns/Minute, 605 CCW Turns/Day.
*** Winder "B" ***
CW Cycle had 49.5 turns in 6:25 for a rotational rate of about 7.7 Turns/Minute, 594 CW Turns/Day.
CCW Cycle had 48.9 turns in 6:25 for a rotational rate of about 7.6 Turns/Minute, 587 CCW Turns/Day.
Note: Winder "B" held a larger watch which may account for the slightly slower rotational speed.
WHAT I LIKE - The flexible expansion capability is impressive. The winders have a relatively small footprint so they can go in places where other winders can't. Adding one winder at a time you can just keep making it larger or separate them as needed. And, if one winder breaks, you just replace it. (These are replacing a dual-winder which has one bad turntable.)
The LCD control panel is simple yet has all the settings I need. And, the back-lighted readout is a plus.
The clear plastic door firmly latches to help minimize dust, and the watch holders held my watches securely and it is padded somewhat.
WHAT I'D IMPROVE - The back-lighted display goes out after about 10 seconds if no buttons are pushed. You need to push a button for the control panel to become active. It would be nice to have the LCD display lighted when a winding cycle is actively running. It's not a major issue, just would be a nice touch.
Would I recommend these winders? A definite YES!!! I plan on adding a few more over the next few weeks and possibly a backup unit as well. Can't speak on the reliability yet, but they appear to be solid, very well made and extremely quiet when running. At the price they're quite a deal.
As mentioned before, if the winder hadn't arrived damaged, I'd give it a provisional 4 stars. The motor runs quietly. The winder is easy to set up and use. It can run on either AC or battery power. It's easily expandable. The downsides that result in loss of a star are: 1) The turns per day are a little short of the rated rate (I measured 8.5 seconds/turn and 3 min 30 sec operation per hour for the 650 TPD setting. That calculates out to 593 turns per day, or 9% less than spec. 2) I would prefer the display to remain lit during actual turning (or at least some low-profile visual indication that can be seen from say 10 feet that the winder is turning).
The motor/turning mechanism appears to be robust and consistent. It turned at 8.5 seconds/turn with and without my watch loaded (a TAG Aquaracer Caliber 5) on the holder.
Interestingly, the instructions for the winder I received said nothing about lubricating the motor prior to use and unlike some previous reviews, no tube of oil was included.
* Great design. The door is removable if you prefer it without it. It's stackable, and therefore expandable with your collection. The power can be daisy chained from one winder to another.
* AC or battery powered. You can put it out on display for your daily wears, or put it in the safe for your really special watches.
What I'm indifferent about:
* It only has 5 different choices for turns per day. I'd prefer more, but it seems to be the industry standard.
What I'd change:
* The watch cushion. It isn't too bad for holding watches, but there is a little bit of slack in the latching mechanism to the winder itself. This results in a very slight click as the watch shifts side to side every 1/2 rotation. It's not enough to keep you up at night, but it is audible from about 10 feet. One way around the clicking is to only latch one side. It still holds the watch solidly, and it gets rid of the click.
* The motor is audible at night. Again, it's not enough to keep you up at night, but it is audible from about 10 feet. For comparison, I have a Wolf Design winder right next to it that isn't audible from that distance.
It has its flaws, but you would be hard pressed to find another winder this good at this price!
