Why do you need a watch winder?

Debatable if it's good for your watch, especially entry level one.

Only if no quickset lor.

Was advised by a few friends to keep my watches in the winder so that the oil inside the mechanism doesn't dry up.

Not sure what is entry level to you.

wouldn't constantly moving the gears use up the oils/lubricants instead...?

Another camp will say the gears will be worn out if the mechanism are kept moving. No right or wrong, depends on what one believe in

No science in the entire thing? Mechanics is much like religion?

based on my personal experience, gears will be worn out if they are in constant motion.

at certain timings, certain part of a rotating disc will be visible on my watch.. and i realise there is increasing amount of scratch marks.

How does gears used up oil?
Won't used up oil
But gear teeth and all parts will have wear and tear.
Much similar to driving a car constantly.
So depends if you need the watch to be running all the time and you can pick it up and go.

Or you prefer to set them. Having a winder uses electricity and takes up alot of space.
And if you have 10-20 watches. How to store.

No need mechanical science. See what you aim to achieve only.
