Pangaea S400-E Watch Winder

The Pangaea S400 is currently unavailable. Comparable single watch winders are the Chiyoda, Heiden, Wolf Heritage, and Brookstone.

The Pangaea S400 E Battery Powered Automatic Single Watch Winder is an ideal choice for anyone who is looking for a winder that runs on batteries as well as AC power. This simply means that you have flexibility in choosing the power source that is going to best suit your needs and the Pangaea has been designed with this firmly in mind.

It is a simple automatic winder that can be used to wind a wide variety of watch brands and will also accommodate a range of watch sizes. The feature that many customers usually look for is how much noise a winder will make and the good news with the Pangaea is that it features a silent motor. It also has a timer that you can set as well as the direction of the rotations.

The Pangaea provides a stylish storage solution when you are not wearing your timepiece and the fact that it is equipped for winding automatic watches as well, makes it a great choice. In fact, if you are looking to save a little money with your purchase of a storage and winding device for your watches, this winder becomes even more attractive.

It’s a stylish storage solution and priced reasonably so that you can buy more than one if necessary. Based on customer feedback and our own experience, the Pangaea watch winder is a good value, though I’m not confident on the longevity of the winder.
