This is one of the cheaper winders on O. It was pretty quiet and simple to use although it would not keep my Bulova watch wound. It will wind one way or the other but not both. I'm not sure if that makes a difference. WIfe swore she could hear a faint squeaking noise every once in awhile. It looked nice enough - simple I guess - I didn't want to spend $100 on a winder but perhaps that might be necessary depending on the watch. I returned it.
