The Orbita Tourbillon One Watch Winder is a single watch winder with a very modern look. It is a little different from more traditional looking watch winders as it is made from 3/8” heavy glass crystal rather than wood. Aside from the modern look, this automatic watch winder has all the features you would expect from a high-end watch winder.
The Orbita Tourbillon has an accurate quartz-based mechanism and an indicator that shows the revolutions per day as they are counted on the LED display. The counter resets automatically each night at midnight and you can set the time with push-button controls, as well as a variety of programmable flash rates. You can turn the flashing lights off though for sleeping. The glass enclosure is open on two sides so that you can attach the power cord at the back as well as have easy access to the drum. The see through glass enclosure also allows you to see the winder in action.

Customer Feedback and Reviews
Just a few customers have left reviews for this exclusive automatic watch winder and give it an average rating. The consensus of customers agreed that the Orbita Tourbillon is a special product and they clearly appreciated the technology that has been brought into play. They liked its modern look and precision performance as well as being able to program it. One customer received a winder that was incomplete and decided to return the winder rather than wait for the parts.
One customer was a little skeptical about the box having two open sides, however further investigation proved that one open side is needed for power cord access and the two together make it easy to access the drum when you want to place your watch on the winder.
