From the looks of it, women were very upset about the masculine looking watch winders most luxury timepieces came with. There was a need for a more feminine touch to this useful gadget. And so Orbita, a North Carolina based company, just launched a line of women oriented single watch winders. Yes, in a whole range of colors too!
The fairer sex (and we are not referring to the complexion) will be happy to learn that the Sparta Mini works in a ‘plug and plug’ style, that means you do not have to fiddle with any settings as it rotates once in every 10 minutes. You can pick your fave from crĂ¨me, red, blue, pink and white, each done up on faux lizard skin on plastic.
The winder comes with the assurance that it will not damage or over-wind any mechanical watch. All you have to do is simple place the watch on the unit by first putting it on the foam cushion and then returning the cushion to the device. Priced at $295, we are impressed with Orbita for catering to the very elite audience of women owning mechanical watches.
