Have had this watch winder for 2 months. Works very well and motor does NOT make any noise whatsoever. Has a green blinking light that lets you know it is working even though it may not be turning the watch. While the cuff holder is oversize to accommodate a long band man's watch, I use it for a woman's watch. The cuff holder compresses to accommodate any size watch. For a smaller band watch, like a woman's, you have to squeeze it more to place and secure the watch on it. Based on everything I have read about cheaper watch winders not holding up over the long-term, I think this is a wise investment in a quality product that will last a long time.
