Optimising Your Bell & Ross Watch with Barrington Watch Winders

Bell & Ross watches are renowned for their precision, craftsmanship, and innovative designs. If you're a proud owner of one of these exquisite timepieces, you understand the importance of maintaining their performance, which includes ensuring that they keep accurate time and have a healthy power reserve.

A watch winder is an essential accessory for Bell & Ross watches, helping you achieve these goals effortlessly. In this blog, we'll explore the world of Bell & Ross watch winder settings, emphasising how a Barrington Watch Winder can be your trusted companion in keeping your Bell & Ross watch in top-notch condition.

Understanding Watch Winder Basics

Before we delve into the intricacies of Bell & Ross watch winder settings, let's briefly review what a watch winder is and why it's essential. A watch winder is a device designed to keep automatic watches running smoothly when they are not being worn.

Unlike quartz watches that run on batteries, automatic watches operate using a mechanical movement that relies on a series of gears and springs. A watch winder simulates the natural motion of a wrist, keeping your automatic watch wound and ready to wear at any time.

Bell & Ross watches, such as the XL Chrono series, are no exception. They feature automatic movements that require consistent motion to keep accurate time and maintain their power reserve. This is where a watch winder comes into play…

The Importance of a Watch Winder for Bell & Ross Watches

  • Preserving Power Reserve: A watch winder ensures that your Bell & Ross watch always maintains a healthy power reserve. Keeping your watch fully wound ensures it's ready to be worn at any time, eliminating the need to reset the time and date every time you decide to put it on.
  • Reducing Wear and Tear: Manually winding your Bell & Ross watch every time it stops can lead to unnecessary wear and tear on the crown and stem. A watch winder eliminates this need, preserving the integrity of your timepiece.
  • Safeguarding your Timepiece: Barrington Watch Winders feature soft and cushioned interiors to cradle your Bell & Ross watch securely, preventing any contact with hard surfaces and safeguarding it against scratches or dings during winding.

Barrington Watch Winder Settings for Bell & Ross Watches

Now that we've established why a watch winder is crucial for your Bell & Ross watch, let's explore the specific settings you should consider when using a Barrington Watch Winder:

  • Turns Per Day (TPD): The number of turns per day required depends on the specific movement in your Bell & Ross watch. Typically, a TPD setting between 650 and 950 is ideal for most automatic watches, including Bell & Ross. However, it's essential to refer to your watch's manual or contact Bell & Ross directly for the precise TPD recommendation for your model.
  • Rotation Direction: Bell & Ross watches can be wound in both clockwise and counterclockwise directions. To ensure even wear on the mainspring, it's advisable to use a watch winder with bi-directional rotation capability. Barrington Watch Winders often offer this feature, allowing you to select the direction that suits your watch.
  • Customised Settings: Some Barrington Watch Winders provide customizable settings, allowing you to fine-tune the rotation and direction according to your specific Bell & Ross model. This level of customization ensures that your watch receives the precise care it needs.
  • Power Reserve Mode: Many Barrington Watch Winders offer a power reserve mode, which mimics the natural wrist movement of wearing the watch. This mode typically involves a series of rotation cycles with rest periods in between to simulate the watch being worn and wound on the wrist. It's an excellent feature to ensure that your Bell & Ross watch is always ready to go.
