Review by Ablobtowatch.com Bilal Khan :
"Orbita uses a patented technology they refer to as “Rotorwind” which has the watch swing back and forth rather than rotate. Orbita says that this mimics the motion of a wrist, but the real benefit is that the oscillations that are triggered by the movement of the motor require a small amount of power and physics does the rest. Also, something I want to mention about the Rotorwind system is that it keeps the watch winder really quiet, with only the slightest sound heard when it activates every 10 minutes or so. I have to be in a quiet room sitting right next to it to even notice the sound.
I am a big fan of Orbita, and their Rotorwind system is absolutely one of the most useful and impressive general watch winder mechanisms. For many people, the cost of a watch winder is something they’d rather use towards the purchase of a watch, and that’s absolutely reasonable. However, if you’re looking for a high-quality, reliable, and attractive watch winder then I highly recommend taking a look at the Orbita Piccolo"
