I've finally decided to join the forum after starting up my watch collection properly again and really looking around to see what I like in the world of watches.
I wanted to get a watch winder for my new acquisition......a U-Boat U51 Chimera Solid Bronze, as it won't be an everyday watch. http://www.u-boatwatch.co.uk/#!solid-bronze/c1ju4
I bought a Wolf Designs 2.5 winder (without cover) http://uk.wolfdesigns.com/watch-wind...r-single-brown
It's my first experience of using a watch winder and I just wanted to check something with anyone who has used them before.
The winder is making a slight knocking noise once or twice per rotation as it rotates.....even with no watch on the cuff. Is this normal? It does not seem to be struggling at all and is rotating smoothly, but aside from the knocking noise it definitely is not silent but isn't too loud either.
Can anyone tell me if this is normal?
