Benson-Black-Series-Watch-Winder-Featured

Spinning round with the Benson Black Series Watch Winder

While we have only featured a few different watch winders (here and here), there is no doubt that they are (or should be) a popular purchase for those with burgeoning mechanical watch collections. While our previous forays into reviewing winders have definitely been focused on the more affordable end of the spectrum, it was late last year that we ran across the Benson Black Series Watch Winders, which brought some nice design (and a few tricks) to the table. We have spent some time with one, and now we will share our thoughts.

At last – hands-on with the WT Author 1905

WT Author is one of those brands that I’ve been pleasantly surprised to run across. They have been creating watches unlike what we had seen prior (at least in the modern era of watches), and they have an overarching plan (and timeline) for how their total collection will play out. We saw it start off with the WT Author 1905 (link), then move on to the 1914 (link), and most recently, the 1929 (link). While we had been able to provide hands-on impressions of the latter two models, that first had been limited to just the pictures we had seen, and viewing it through the lens of the design cues that carried forward onto the subsequent models. As fortune would have it, we were able to work with WT Author to have a WT Author 1905 sent over, so let’s travel back in time and have a look at what it offers.
