That’s a great collection! :Star: i’ve only ever found one watch - sadly faux gold. Don’t find many watch winders either. Nice to see so many. They make a great collection :thumbsup:

Nice collection of winders there :thumbsup: Never found a watch myself - maybe a cog wheel or two, but never the whole thing or even a case. The winders only number a handful, too, but they are nice to find.

It's always nice to find a new to you design of watch winder, as with anything else really.

Strangely I’ve only ever found one watch winder, they must have been careful or poor on my permissions!
