Are watch winders useful? Of course! But all too often the design aesthetic has been reminiscent of the Trabant. You look at it and realize that yes, it is an automobile (of sorts), but you would probably be just as happy not to have to drive it. Many collectors would like to have a watch winder, but when examining the options, they have been put off either by price or by the actual appearance of the winder.
Austin-based JUVO has addressed this with a series of watch winders that are very good looking. But beyond the look of the winder itself, JUVO has really considered one thing that most of the other winder manufacturers have not – the overwhelming desire for a watch collector to be able to admire the watches in the winder. To that end, the JUVO winders have been designed to not only safely wind your favorite watches, but to house them in an environment that allows you to enjoy looking at them as they are winding. But JUVO went one step further, equipping its winders with a lighting system that literally puts a soft spotlight on your watches as they wind.
In the words of JUVO co-founder, Bhanu Chopra: “I have all these great watches, but I rarely get to display them. To me, it’s like keeping the Crown Jewels of England out of sight where no one can enjoy them.” The design of these winders is reminiscent of what stereo components used to offer – amazing high fidelity sound capabilities encased in a beautiful package that looks as good as the furniture that surrounds it. Function and form!
JUVO winders are available in four different configurations to accommodate three, four, six or eight watches.
