Attractive, but that's pretty much where it ends...

Summary: I read all the reviews that were available on Amazon before I purchased this winder, and found a reasonably equal share of positive and negative comments. With a leap of faith I ordered this winder and hoped for the best. Shipping was fast, and I opened the box with eagerness and anticipation, marveling at the beauty of the thing once I got it all unwrapped. I read the instructions, placed six of my watches on six of the pillows, plugged it in and let `er roll.
Summary: I bought this winder for my father for Christmas. He absolutely loved it. He keeps all of his watches in it. The extra storage was perfect because he has some automatic watches and some non automatic watches. It is still virtually silent and in perfect condition!
Summary: OK, I understand that this is not the most expensive winder you can purchase. However, I did assume that it would last long enough to at least get a little dust on it. It did not. In general, the fit and finish of this product is good. It is very attractive and seems well made. The motors (when they ran) were actually surprisingly quiet. At first, I was quite pleased.
Summary: When I got my winder, I was very impressed with its look, finish and usability. It was quiet silent and the winding options where more than addecuate for all my watches after I learnt which one was the adequate for each brand. It uses two motors, one for two of the watch holders and one for the third holder. However, only 4 months after I started using it, the motor that moves the two holders stopped working.
Summary: I bought a six watch Diplomat winder. Lest their be any confusion, this IS the GARMIN winder rebranded with the name Diplomat. The first one that arrived was a 2 watch winder though I ordered the 6 watch. Amazon, to their credit, immediately overnighted a six watch winder - next day delivery. I was and am impressed by Amazon's customer service! The 6 watch winder rotated VERY fast when I set it up.
Summary: Bought this as a gift for my husband. It is BEAUTIFUL. The color is unusual but very beautiful. He usually doesnt get excited about things, but when he saw this box, he was so impressed. It makes a world of difference to view your watches displayed in a beautiful watchbox/winder. Even the cheapies look impressive.
Summary: This burled wood six watch winder arrived about a week ago, and I must say it meets my expectations. It is a well crafted piece. The burl is nice and the white leather interior is classy. I have four automatic watches winding on it now and soon expect to add a fifth. The winding programs work exactly as described. You have a choice of counterclockwise, clockwise, or both. The first two winding platforms are controlled by the first brass switch in the box.
Summary: The reviews before me went into enough detail that all I can do is agree with them, other than the 4 star review. Should have also been 5 stars. This is a large case but looks great on the night stand or dresser. Works flawlessly, so far, after 3 months. The only this I would change is the pillows need to be larger. I have a large wrist and the watches are a little loose. I have to tuck the bands in order to keep them from flopping around as they turn, but this is minor.
Summary: Yep, That's Right! I should have known, just by the manner in which my new winder was packaged. The care that went into the actual packaging of this product, is something worth seeing. I just knew that the actual winder would be stunning! And guess what? I was right on! The fit and finish of this winder is spectacular! Though I do have to alternate the staging on the winders of my larger case sized watches (50mm), along side my medium case sized watches (45mm-46mm).
