Automatic Watch Winder DIY

2009-Oct-10
 
Watch Winder Base

This was the 1st attempt; however, the angle of the watch cage is not enough, the rotor of the automatic watch did not rotate.

The green parts were for supporting the watch cage.

The final version.

The angle between the watch cage and the table is about 45°

After testing, the angle should be at least 40° for the rotor of the watch rotate continuously.

We add 2 legs on the base of the watch winder in order to increase the angle.

Finish !

Total cost is less than HK$ 120 for a 4-watch watch winder with zero magnetism.

For convenience, you may buy a A/C timer to switch on / off the power supply.

 
In the movie, the capability of winding 4 automatic watches is shown. However, only the Seiko 5 and the Ball Watch is Automatic Watches, the Seiko Chronograph is quartz and the Swatch is "dead battery" quartz.
