This rating is based on what I got for what I spent. This winder is very quiet.I keep it on a stand next to my bed. The motor is quite strong because I use this winder to spin a very heavy Pro Diver bracelet watch. There is plenty of room, once the watch is seated in the winder, to clear the glass cover. If allowed, I will do a followup on the durability of ths winder. It seems to be a star in an arena where it is not uncommon to ask over $200 for a single winder! Fellow watch collectors keep an eye on this winder.
