Would being on a watch winder cause a watch to gain four minutes of time ? I put my watch on a watch winder for a few days while I wore my other watch and then when I went to put it on I noticed that it had gained four minutes of time.

It shouldn't. If I have a watch that starts gaining that much time out of the blue, my mind first goes to magnetism. What's the watch?

Yeah, no reason that I can see why a winder would cause a difference of 4 minutes in a few days. Particularly on a nicer Swiss auto (looks like an ETA 2895 - I have a watch being serviced right now with the same one). My guess is the issue is not the winder. Try wearing it for a few days and see if it's still gaining time...

Agreed ;-)
