Vulcan Innova Watch Winder

Jun 23, 2017

For a subset of guys, high quality watches and automobiles share a similar appeal. Their inner workings are intricate and complicated to the point of being almost beautiful. It is fitting, then, that Vulcan Innova has fashioned their VI52 Watch Winder out of an engine block.

Built from an old BMW M52 straight-six, the same type used in the E36 M3, this winder is engineered to hold six different watches at a time. The winders themselves are custom built using components CNC-machined from billet aluminum and integrate seamlessly into the engine’s body as if they’re a set of pistons. Each one submerges into the engine block with the touch of a button, locking the timepieces into place. Thanks to the use of stepper engines, those pistons run a quiet and controllable movement throughout the day. Depending on your watch, you can pick from one of 8 different movements to better charge your watch’s internal movement. Each of the 52 winders will be made to order by hand in Los Angeles, allowing customers to personalize small details like the engine block color, piston color, and even LED indicator colors on the buttons.

Purchase: $25,000
