Has anyone heard of Steinhausen watch winders? Or, do any of you own one? If so, what can you tell me about them? I am looking at the one pictured here. It is a quad that runs on AC and is made of cherry wood.
Thanks for any input you may have. If someone does have one or better yet this one, could you post a picture for me?

Have you tried doing a search on 'steinhausen' here? I know this question was asked not too long ago & it had a bunch of replies from owners. Also on the archive site.

I do have an 8 watch version. They are nice & well made, but you need to accept a few things. 1) you get what you pay for. It will make noise you'll hear. If you're a light sleeper & want it next to your bed, you better have a timer on it to turn it off. 2) they'll get louder as they get older 3) you'll probably have to tighten the screw holding the bays on in a year or so.

All in all, a good value usually. But if you want wisper quiet, you'll want an Orbita, Wolfe or Eilux. MUCH more expensive usually for the same, but you won't hear them. But all in all, a good winder for the money.

I have a 4 watch model that one side broke under warranty and they did not respond to
phone calls, e-mail, or any other way. The other side is getting noisy. I would not buy another one. I was lucky to get one of the Luxupac winders and it seems very good so far. When I need a lager one thats where I will look first.

I've had the Burlwood version of that winder for a couple of years. Sorry though, no pictures to share of it.

One of the winder heads quit working several months ago and upon opening it up, I couldn't see a quick fix. Would probably need replacement. Got no help on that from the company from which it was ordered (not Steinhausen). So, I just go with the 3 that work, (which have gotten a little noisy by now), and use the 4th as a display head.

My wife and I each have a solar powered watch that we put in the front
"windows" to keep them charged. It is a nice piece of watch furniture.

Not sure what type of info you're looking for, but I hope this helps.

I do not own a watch winder..

But, I have noted that the ones with the most complaints on forums and among watch enthusiasts seems to be the Steinhausens..

Apparently they fail under the strain of heavier sport watches...

Perhaps they have fixed these problems...:001_unsure:
