There are some watchmakers who do not recommend use of winders at all. I just think it's a matter of personal preference as long as you pick up a quality winder that you can custom set a # of revolutions per day. For me, I don't think I will need a winder.
I guess for me it's more of a convenience factor plus it keeps the watches constantly moving and lubricated.
