Intro: Knex Watch Winder

Hello,

I’m not sure if there are many others that are into Automatic Watches and have a box of K’nex.

I wanted to make a watch winder, this is what I’ve come up with

When using the 12v motor, you can purchase a wireless timer to have the watch winder come on and off as you like.

Red connector - 2

Purple Connector - 25

Orange connector - 22

Yellow Medium gear - 4

Blue spacers - 9

Gray spacers - 8

End cap - 5

End cap loop - 4

Tan clip - 2

Total - 180
