A Good Horse Must Have A Saddle? What Saddle To Match?

Case: The first high-end watch of my life was purchased in 2009, and the brand will not be mentioned. Very cherished, go out early in the morning to wear, and carefully wipe into the watch box after returning late. Coincidentally, no more than half a month, chance coincidence, and bought a second watch. The two watches are worn in turns, and the self-winding movement has a power reserve of more than 40 hours, and there is rarely a shutdown.
   I have no habit of winding the watch. With the purchase of the third automatic movement watch and the frequency of wearing three watch rotations has decreased, the watch has begun to stop, and the time must be adjusted each time it is worn. So I considered whether I needed a table shaker.
   This is what I considered when I first bought the watch.

   Many watch friends are struggling with whether or not this watch should be bought and what is suitable. This is a help post often seen in the Watch House Forum. Let’s talk about this period of 315.
   A perpetual calendar or an almanac watch with a relatively complicated adjustment, in the case of infrequent wearing, requires a shaker, because the adjustment is too complicated.

   Here we must first point out that normal movement of the movement will cause wear to the movement itself, and stoppage will not cause wear to the movement. However, it is necessary to ensure that the chain is wound once a month to keep the mechanical gears lubricated, which can extend the service life of the mechanical watch and the accuracy of the travel time. Through winding, the movement of the movement is tightened, and the movement of the movement is retracted and retracted naturally during sleep.
   Therefore, ordinary watches do not need to be equipped with a shaker, but will cause the gears of the movement to wear out. However, I believe that there are still some wayward watch friends, who have a calendar or multiple watches. I think the watch is used. I like to keep the watch running at all times. I don’t like to stop it for easy selection at any time. What about buying a shaker?

   In addition to those expensive, the world’s most high-end custom watch shaker such as Buben & Zorweg and other brands. The remaining shakers available on the market range in price from one to two hundred yuan to ten thousand yuan. Most of the categories are domestic, domestic with Swiss or Japanese motors, and many imported brands.
   The following points must be met to meet a usable shaker:
   In the design of the watch movement, there are two winding technologies: two-way winding and single-winding. Therefore, the table shaker should satisfy the setting of two-way and one-way shake table. And some low-end watch shakers will only be fooled in one direction, which is absolutely impossible to buy.
   According to different watch movements, different time ratios for winding and hibernation can be set to keep the movement in a reasonable state, neither to wear too much, nor to stop running out of power. According to statistics, most automatic winding movements can meet the winding requirements of the watch at 500 to 800 revolutions per day. If the watch is always on the winding state, most of the watches are in full-chain idle state, causing unnecessary wear to the movement gear. Therefore, it is particularly important that the watch shaker can be accurately wound.

Borrowed a chart of the shaker structure on the Internet
   The watch shaker is oscillated by the motor, which will emit magnetic field magnetic waves, causing the watch movement to magnetize. This requires the shaker to use a magnetic shield on the motor to prevent magnetic diffusion, and in terms of design, the watch is placed outside the motor’s magnetic field.
   There are also some other things such as the design of the fixed position of the shaker to prevent the watch from falling off, and whether to reduce noise during operation.

This is very unprofessional
   Single watch setting is necessary for the single watch position. Unless your two watch movements are the same, do not buy a watch shaker that can hold two watches. This design is not Professional design can be imagined inside.
    The direction control of the shaker is already a relatively common function, and as long as the question of the motor magnetic wave is as clear as possible before the purchase, you can also check it yourself, these are relatively easy. But whether you can achieve the highest precision for the watch is carefully selected.
   Let’s take a look at the types of winding models on the market:
   Controlled by buttons or knobs, this is the most common type of shake meter sold. The buttons or knobs have several rotation modes. The setting of the number of turns and rest time is relatively simple and simple. The price ranges from several hundred yuan to several thousand yuan. Etc. The differences are mostly imported or material work.

Very common knob button gear settings are obviously rough
   Button or knob control cannot achieve precise winding at all, and it can even be said to be rough. The first is that it cannot be timed. The meter will always rotate after power on, and the rotation mode is very single. There are basically only a few modes, left, right, or a few turns. Although it is difficult to accurately wind up different movements, it is also necessary to minimize the unnecessary wear of the movement, so this simple adjustment method is not recommended to buy.
   There is an LED display screen, which is obviously higher-end through button control, and the price is directly from 3,000 to 4,000 yuan.

This cannot set how many hours apart to continue rotating
   You can set the number of rotations of the watch for one day, and you can set the number of hours after which the watch continues to rotate. This is similar to the mode in which we usually wear a watch, and it can provide a variety of rotation modes. The more functions, the more expensive, the adjustable range of the number of rotations in a day, and the type of rotation mode provided by the number of rotations. Personally, it is recommended to purchase the function of one day’s rotation and the number of hours after which the rotation will continue, and the greater the controllable day rotation, the more rotation modes, which can more effectively reduce the unnecessary wear of the movement.
   There is also a way to connect to a computer through a USB interface, and to set the operation of the shaker through the independent operating software of the computer equipped with the shaker. Even top professionals can also control it by linking to the APP on the mobile phone.

   This belongs to the professional level of the watch shaker, and the price can only put a watch model is about 88,000. Different watch settings belong to their specific operating mode. More advanced ones can automatically identify the operation by simply entering their movement model.
   It is recommended to buy the two after the first one. The first one is still a power-up device, but it only adds a few ways. The display has a number of revolutions per day and hours. The mode of providing rotation by setting the number of revolutions has become more intelligent and relatively accurate. The third type is of course the best, but considering that the movement of the movement itself will wear out, there is no need to specifically pursue precision winding, and some cost-effective issues must also be considered.
   Before writing this article, I also bought a watch shaker on Amazon America, the brand will not say first, after all, I have n’t got it yet, I do n’t know if it is worth buying, if not worth buying … hey, think about this I have a headache before the mortgage is paid. The configuration function is quite reasonable. The number of rotations per day can be adjusted between 300 and 1200, and the number of hours can be set. It is equipped with 57 rotation modes according to the rotation and number of turns. I will focus on testing after I get it. Please wait for my detailed evaluation.
   Finally, a friendly reminder, unless your shaker can set the direction and number of revolutions by entering the movement model (this feature is really high-end, some are too few), please familiarize yourself with the movement and rotation of the watch before using it. Number of revolutions to avoid unnecessary wear or damage to the movement. In fact, a good horse does not necessarily need to be equipped with a saddle, but it must be equipped with a good saddle!
