Review of the Orbita Siena 3 Executive Rotorwind Watch Winder
By: John B. Holbrook, II
Back in June of this year, I had the pleasure of reviewing the Orbita Siena 2 Rotowind watch winder. I liked it...a lot. So once the new ROTORWIND« equipped Orbita Siena's were available, I ordered a Siena 3 Executive, which I got just in time for Christmas.
The burl wood case on my Siena 3 Executive is stunning, and not only integrates well with the decor in my bedroom, it's almost a perfect match to my ten year old Orbita Quatro Executive winder in teak wood it sits next to on my dresser. Given the age difference between the winders, I wasn't expecting to get an exact match, particularly given the differences in the grains of the two wood finishes. But their darn close to one another, so I'm quite pleased.
Since I did a photo review of the Siena 2 in June, I decided to do a video review of my new Siena 3 Executive Rotowind model, and demonstrate the differences between Orbita's Programmable system, and the Rotowind system:
I'll be honest - my first choice for another winder would have been for Orbita to bring back the discontinued Quatro Executive so that I could purchase a matching model to the one I have. The Quatro Executive is my personal favorite winder that Orbita (or any other company for that matter) has produced. But the Siena 3 Executive is a close 2nd for me in meeting my expectations of what a watch winder should be. Thanks Orbita!
