Oracle Recommends: Watch Accessories for September 2022

Orbit Winder Co. Orbit Winder, £1,300

Orbit Winder Co. Orbit Winder

On a functional level watch winders are designed to keep your automatic watches wound, however they also serve as a form of display case. Orbit Winders embraces this duality with a gyroscopic structure that emulates a tourbillon. The smooth and silent motion is both visually spectacular and healthier for your watch than a traditional winder. That’s because by rotating on multiple axis it causes less wear and strain on the movement compared to being locked into a single plane. There are three versions available: Piano Black, Walnut and Birch, all crafted by hand.

Available at Orbit Winder.

Forstner Bands, $125 (Approx. £100)

Komfit Everyone knows that the Omega Speedmaster is the iconic space watch, but are you familiar with the most iconic space watch strap? The Forstner Komfit is one of the only steel watch bracelets in history to have been approved by NASA for manned space flights and has even been to the moon. It has a two-layered construction and front-facing clasp that make it easy and comfortable to use. Plus it was one of the first bracelets to feature micro-incremental adjustments, allowing it to be sized properly without the need for additional tools.

Available at Forstner.
