Looking like something ripped straight from the pages of a futuristic sci-fi comic, Dottling’s new gyroscopic watch winder promises to keep your favorite watches wound and ticking faithfully, all while presenting you with a smooth, fluid motion that can only be accurately described as a work of art.
Though the 360 degree motion of the Gyrowinder is an unnecessary feature (proper winding only requires rotation on one axis rather than three), seeing it in action may get you to thinking about all you’ve been missing all these years with regular watch winders.
Watch Winder of the Future?
Complete with an entire system of precisely organized counterweights, the revolutionary winder allows for customization to meet the needs of the watch’s owner. Set it in such a way and you can have the face of the watch turned toward you at all times, even as the machine is doing its fascinating work.
It’s the perfect gadget for the kinetic watch connoisseur who has an undying affinity for all things high-tech… and also happens to have a spare $18,000 lying around somewhere. Granted, while it does sport an admittedly hefty price tag, each Gyrowinder is truly one of a kind. This is because every one is meticulously assembled by hand in Germany, a four week process that involves exceptional care and craftsmanship. Even the pristine crystal dome that fits over the mechanism is mouth-blown, its solid wooden base lacquered by hand.
The Dottling Gyrowinder is currently available in a minimum of two models. The most popularly publicized now is the black and stainless steel version, clean in its lines and color. The second boasts the same perfectly painted base in black but features copper accents beside the polished aluminum for a multi-tonal appearance. A brilliant LED spotlight illuminates the workings of the device from below when activated.
A Winder for Those with the Most Discerning Tastes
While the outrageous costliness of such an item may deter the majority of watch owners from even considering purchasing it at all, the Dottling Gyrowinder is certain to make a serious impression with at least some of the world’s most prolific timepiece collectors. Manufactured to serve as both a watch winder and a source of entertainment in itself, it is surely destined to grace the desks and shelves of men and women whose many luxury watches are their true pride and joy.
