In the past, watch winders haven’t really been objects of desire. Yes, a necessity perhaps, but nothing to get the heart pumping and blood racing. That was before German company Döttling, lead by CEO Markus Döttling, came up with their luxury accessory
, the Gyrowinder. This gadget includes a wide array of technological options, along with a design modeled after gyroscopes (a piece of equipment used by NASA to train astronauts to prevent spatial disorientation) that was seen by Döttling while visiting the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
For the first time, this incredibly precise instrument allows for 360 degree turns so that the watch can be positioned in any direction, whereas conventional watch winders only turn a watch along a fixed axis. Also, since all watches have a different weight, this winder features a set of counterweights making it possible to balance any watch.
