So just got it, im not a great reviewer so ill give initial impressions

-Was very HEAVY, like 30 lbs

-Outer box had some damage, guessing from UPS

-After opening I gave it a look over and it does look very nice. There were a few odd scuffs/looks like fingerprints but dont seem to wipe off on one side that ill see if they come out and also when you pull the drawers out, they are finished all the way around but on mine there are a few weird ripples in the outer finish on the backside of the drawers. Cant see unless you pull drawers out etc but nonetheless looks like they did a hasty job there. Since they arent readily visible, not sure its worth returning over.

-I remember JIM saying that you wont believe who made this and their name is all over it etc and "I cant say it on air", well on the documentation that comes with it, it says Thomas Pacconi,,,,,,,No clue who that is, likely some SNBC shill. Oh well, certainly not Wolf, Orbita etc...lol..nothing to make me excited over.

-ALso the presentation said that the bottoms were well padded etc so as not to scratch your fine furniture, well must not be too good as i scratched our brand new bedroom furniture with it....F'n A!!!! Had to do a little sharpie black marker fix....Ghetto, but worked!

-Documentation totally sucks, tells you what the 5 programs are but what would be helpful is to know how many revolutions per day each equates to so that I know im winding the pieces enough as most require 650-800 per day. Also it says it has a 90 day warranty which requires a $7.95 handling fee. Then says that if after the 90 days and its out of warranty, the instructions are the same except its a $9.95 fee. Is that right? Seems like very reasonable if true, unless they also hit you with repair fees etc beyond that?? Again the doc isnt clear. They do give you contact info incl phone number for help etc though which is great.

-I will say that when plugging in and turning on, so far its amazingly quiet and smooth on the gears. Hopefully it stays that way.

- Smells like all HELL when you open it, must need to air out i guess

-The watches stay very very well in place both in the cubbies and on the winder which i was worried about. Since my wrist is smaller many of my watches i was only able to close one end of the bracelet around the pillow as they dont have alot of give, likely what keeps them secure in the cubbies.

-Drawers pull smoothly etc, hardware seems nice.

-I am very happy in that even the biggest watches i have do indeed fit both in the top under the glass as well as in the drawer without either hitting the glass or scraping the top of the bezel when closing the drawer....That i am happy about as its a pet peeve from my other box.

-I have some Anonimos and SAN3 on the winders now that were totally dead, gave em a shake and will let run all day and see how charged they get. Since one is a Power reserve I should be able to see easily how full it gets.

- The real test will come after i let these rip on the winder for a while and see how well that does!!!

- I didnt get a pic of the botom drawer interior, but I do like it, have my few rings in there, a few watches and straps etc...Very nice.

-Overall is it a perfect work of art? NO, Is it very very nice and seem like better quality then most of whats out there? YES. Am i happy with it as a sub $200 purchase after %5 back from Mr Rebates? YES, So FAR. How the winders do will be the final factor as to whether I keep it or it goes back!!!

Just a word of caution.
A watch winder is not meant to actually WIND your watches from a minimal PR to a full wind.
Rather thay are designed to maintain a fully wound watch so that it doesn't run down.
Don't get upset if the waches you gave a shake to get them going die on the winder.

i thought the same thing about winders not winding them, but Sean over at WF said that his do??? Is that not correct? He said he can give them a shake and stick em on and away they go. Really if its winding all day how is that diff then wearing it all day?

I bought two of the four-drawer watch towers that came up recently...$99 each. Got 'em both in, and both are solidly made and have no problems. did notice that the inside of the front doors wasn't finished as well as the exterior, but not a returnable offense...

FYI, Thomas Pacconi is the company that makes/supplies Shop with a lot of the Christmas stuff they sell, from revolving trees to ornaments.....

Just stating what I have heard many times over the years.
Before I wear my watches I fully wind them.

Wow....I really, really hate to throw more fuel to any latent conspiracy theories.........

But anyone notice how close this SNBC vendor is to yet another SNBC vendor in Hollywood, Florida?

Nice, eric! FWIW, when i used my winders i tested it with a PR watch. If it was dead from the start, it would be wound about 1/4 power. If full before the start, it would be kept between 1/2 - 3/4 full power. but that wasn't a programmable winder, just the cheap ones you see on the bay.

Extremely detailed review Eric !!! From your pictures it looks
well made and VERY nice. The finish seems well done on the
wood. Also there definitely is a bunch of room in there too.
Let us know how the winders work out and congratulations
