Diplomat Ebony six watch winder

Summary: I have waited to publish this review until I have had a chance to use it for some time. After 2 1/2 months, this winder is working perfectly. The wood finish is beautiful as is the interior. There are two control knobs on the front of the winder. The left knob controls the left and center motors, while the right knob controls only the right motor. The winder motors are virtually silent and there is no problem letting it run during the night while sleeping.
Summary: I was searching for a watch winder box to fit my needs for awhile. I made sure that I conducted research like every other items I purchase. I was searching for a watch winder box which would hold my current, and future automatic, and quartz watches. So, instead of purchasing one that only holds one or two, I went bigger. I took a chance because some of the reviews stated it was loud and didn't hold large watches. Well, the price was right and I took a gamble.
YOU WILL NOT FIND A BETTER LOOKING UNIT THAT ACTUALLY WORKS!

Summary: I bought this unit last year for my husband. This was his Christmas gift. I was a little skeptical since I didn't even open the box prior to giving it to him. I just wrapped it and put it under the tree. When he finally opened it, he noticed that I was even shocked from how beautiful the unit really is. He even thought that I had someone else buy it for me since it looked like I was surprised from it too. The pictures really don't do this winder any justice.
Summary: It does the job, but for the price, could be better. Had to remove the top as it wasn't high enough for one of my watches to fit and it's also loud enough to be a little bothersome at night as it's in our bedroom.
Summary: I mistakenly ignored all the other bad reviews on this item. Whoops. The unit itself is beautiful. It looks really nice on my dresser... And that's about where my positive comments end. 1) The amount of space between the top of the case and the watches isn't big enough. My larger watches (like my Panerai, and even my Breitling) rub against the top of the glass while they spin.
Summary: This is a fine piece! After two months using it, I am extremely happy with this winder. It is very well crafted, it is VERY silent, has different functions to match different watch mechanisms, I love its dark ebony finish, it fits perfectly in the shelf space I have available in my closet, plus it has a lock (which the 4-watch winder it is replacing, did not have).
Summary: Purchased this item as a gift for my husband's birthday. Pros: It is a gorgeous piece and made a statement on the nightstand. Very quiet - we never knew it was on. Room for lots of watches. Cons: Died after 3 months. Then to add insult to injury, Amazon could not find the phone number for this company so that we could have it repaired. Luckily (and this is why we shop at Amazon), they agreed to take it back for a full refund. Will purchase another one..
