Orbita Names Two Winners from the "Why I Love My Orbita" Contest

November 5, 2014 - Orbita

We recently asked our loyal fans to submit to us 100 words or less why they “Love their Orbita Watchwinder.” The responses we received were great and brought back fond memories from Orbita’s early years. We are pleased and excited to announce two winners from the contest. It is was our pleasure to award Mark Newman and Juan Mendez a custom, limited edition, Watchlight.

Here are the winning responses:

Juan Mendez

Then and now
“There was a time when gadgets and machinery were built to last and to never brake. And when it broke, if you needed a part, or simply had a question to ask, the manufacturer went out of his way to respond properly and quickly. Sadly, that’s no longer the case. And for me the thought of trouble free, lasting gadgets, and kind, helpful customer service people would only be a faint recollection if I hadn’t run into my first Orbita winder. Thank you Orbita for bringing back products and service I thought long gone.”


Mark Newman

“I think that I shall never see, A winder lovely as thee.
A winder whose winding is best, One where watches go to rest.
A winder that looks beautiful all day, And winds her hours away.
Watches that I may wear winder or summer, Never unwound – a bummer.
Upon my wrist has lain, A watch always wound in sun or rain.
Poems are made by fools like me, But Orbita makes the most beautiful, programmable, keeps-my-watches-wound, watch winder for me!”
