Vulcan Innova Vi52 Watch Winder
If you have a love of watches and cars, then the Vulcan Innova VI52 Watch Winder ($CALL) is exactly what you’re looking for. Th VI52 watch winder is made from an inline six engine block. The M52 block was most notably used in the BMW M3. Each block is thoroughly cleaned and modified to host up to six watches. Each winder has up to three pre-programmed modes and is fully customizable in speed, acceleration, and frequency. When the winder is operational, each watch cushion is locked in its cylinder until you use the provided key to unlock it. When unlocked the cylinder majestically rises out of the block. Only 52 units will be made so if you want one give Vulcan a call.
