Döttling Watchwinder Offers 360° Rotation

By Paul Joseph

German manufacturer Döttling has created an innovative watchwinder that can rotate your timepiece a full 360 degrees.

The Dottling Gyrowinder Watch Winder is fitted with counterweights that can be moved around to enable your watch to face any direction you’d like. Conventional watchwinders work on a single axis, turning a watch either from left to right or from right to left.

Available in a choice of either steel or a combination of brass and gold, the watchwinder comes with a hand-blown crystal glass cover.

The piece was the brainchild of Markus Döttling, the founder of Dottling, who got the idea after seeing a spin testing device for astronauts at NASA's Kennedy Space Centre.

The Dottling Gyrowinder Watch Winder is priced at €11,800 (£9,476).

Döttling was founded in Maichingen, Germany, in 1919.
