See, I have read that as well. But... also I have read that not wearing your watches and letting them sit causes harm as well. Although less complex, it's sort of like leaving your car sit and not driving it. I have asked a few watch experts and people with watch repair shops and they couldn't give me a definitive answer. My watches have always been on winders and so far so good.
