It has five different TPD settings: 650, 900, 1200, 1500, 1800, with intermediate rest cycles to eliminate potential stress on watch movement. It rotates clockwise counter-clockwise, or alternates in between. The winder will repeat its cycle every day, without intervention (as long as it is on).

This winder operates with electric power (AC Adapter included), or two C size batteries (not included).

Unit number one works but squeals from day one. True, they give you some WD40 to lube it but were not they supposed to use some before shipping it out?
Unit number two: from the two power jacks (one used for power - labeled "IN" and other used to distribute power to the second unit - labeled "OUT"), the "IN" one does not work - I had to power it through the one labeled "OUT".
Quite high defect rate isn't it? 2 out of 2.
Update: These pieces of rubbish need constant lubrication, at the rate at once a month or so, else the start squealing. As for the power jack issue, one internal connecter was out from the socket...
They got poor quality, they got bad design they got bad execution... who can ask for anything... less? Or something like that :P....
Simply put this winder is as reliable as a brick and has every feature I've ever heard of. My experience has been that the Japanese motor makes a real difference and is not just marketing blather.
If you have a Rolex set it for 650 rotations per day. For Brietlings or most ETA movements I've heard 1200 is the way to go. In any case there are 5 options available.
I originally bought 2 and just bought 2 more. There are multiple colors available and at times different colors may be more expensive than others, so see what's available at what price.
--Follow up 2/7/2013: One of the winders started squeaking, one drop of the provided wd40 solved that problem but it does seems to be a common complaint. The squeaking comes from a bearing visible from the front of the unit. Still no actual failures in the 4 units I have and they are all running silently now. They have been running daisy chained together off of one power supply for 6 months.
It's quite easy to remove and insert the watch and the LCD display makes it easy to program. Don't forget to turn the unit off before removing or inserting a watch so that you don't stress the motor or drop the watch if it starts during that process.
Like other reviewers, it would be nice if the LCD display stayed on when the unit is plugged into AC power. The units come with the battery/AC switch in the BATT position so you'll want to switch that right away. The AC adaptor is nice and compact and barely takes up any room on a power bar.
The connector kits come with a short cable to run from the unit plugged into the AC to another unit next to it. That way, you only need one adaptor to power multiple units.
This is a very clever, well designed watch winder with at least 5x the quality of the dual tower winders that really shake your watch. Highly recommend this product and I'll be purchasing more as my needs increase.
