Christmas Countdown Day 7 Watch Winder

OK, so this is probably a gift you would give someone who has almost everything (as personally, I have never had the need to automatically wind my Seiko watch), or maybe someone that has two automatic ‘self winding’ watches.

The principle is that you take your self winding (the ones that automatically wind as you move your arm during the day) and place it in the winder. Set the desired timer duration and walk away. The watch winder ensures that your watch is always ready for use.

This Belocia model accommodates two watches and will rotate clockwise, auto swap or counter-clockwise that should meet the needs of most automatic watches. The watch has 4 different settings:
Rotate 33 seconds, rest 12 minutes: 300 approximate rotations/day.
Rotate 10 minutes, rest 90 minutes: 660 approximate rotations/day.
Rotate 30 minutes, rest 3 hours: 940 approximate rotations/day.
Rotate 1 hour, rest 3 hours
