If Dad likes old-school, automatic-winding watches, he’ll want a way to keep them wound and ready for wearing.  The Leather 2 Watch Winder is a leather-covered, glass-topped box with room to display two watches and keep them dust-free.  The interior stand rotates the watches over 4300 times a day to keep them wound, with 20-minutes on and 40-minutes off intervals.  Choose single direction or dual direction rotation, whichever is specified by your watches; an automatic shutoff prevents over-winding.  The Winder comes with an AC power supply, and it uses 4 C batteries for power backup.  It has a locking lid to protect your watches.  The Leather 2 Watch Winder is $199.99 at Sharper Image.

    I bought a triple watch winder many years ago and it was expensive. I think I paid more than $800-$1000 for it. The motors lasted about two years and failed. I contacted the factory and was sent a motor module. 2 years later, it too failed. I was without a winder for quite a few years. I ended up buying a cheap double winder off Amazon last year. This cheap plastice case winder looks cheap but it is still working. I just did a search and Bookstone sells a quad winder for the same amount ($200). The issue with these winders is how long the motors last. I wonder if there are others that has this winder and comment on the motors. I would like to pick one up if the motors are lasting.

    Wow. I never thought these things existed. I think I am going to make one for myself from a laptop cooler.
