New Mainspring Winders

Recommended Posts

I just purchased a new set of Bergeron mainspring winders (#5355) which is a seven winder set with both left and right handles. I was a originally abit worried about spending a large sum on some basic kit ($800CAD) however it has really been worth it! Previously I used two vintage watch craft winder sets which caused plenty of headaches and damaged many springs which prompted me to upgrade. Although I have only wound a few springs with my new set it is quite an experience. The arbours are tapered so the spring slides smoothly off and on and after winding comes easily off the barrel without the spring flying across the room. Honestly worth every penny.  

I have included a few pictures of my old sets and the new beauty as well. My only complaint is that the selection of winder sizes isn’t the best and I will have to purchase a few in larger diameters to fill the gap between the set and my watchcraft pocket watch winders (green box).
