hehe yup it's indeed a winder ... i used to have a rocket redbox winder, however it did not fit all my watches, so I got this steinhausen winder online for 50% off retail .... it does its job, although it's no 50 watch orbita winder that dissapears into the cabinet it's built into .... <drool>

Fantastic! So...do you need a direct feed from the power company to run that thing? And don't tell me it runs great on BATTERY POWER!!!

This is my humble winder setup...

You know, re-reading this thread...

We can either be the biggest Rolex-aholics anonymous grouping, or the most interesting candidates for "The Dating Game."

Ricky, kudos to you and to some of the other members posting here who are in college or just out, and, it seems, have bought their Rolexes themselves. I didn't do so until many years after graduation, even though I've been aware of Rolex and wanted one since I was in school. I think it shows a nice focus on goals, achievement, etc., and bodes well for your future - my Rolex money when I was in school was spent on beer - lots and lots of beer..

I am the Executive Director of a non-profit substance disorder treatment program with approximately 400 clients at any given time, 30 employees, more headaches than they make pills for, and love watches more than my beer pocketbook will allow.

I currently own a Tag Heuer Kirium Chronometer, An RGM 160M Chronograph, A Rolex "Z" Series SS Date Submariner, A Rolex "Z" Series TT GMT-Master IIc.

I am now broke and ready for the poor farm.

I would like a nice Perpetual Calendar Watch before I die. A GO, Patek, JLC, or A. Lange & Sohne Perpetual Calendar. (I'll probably have better odds of dying than achieving this dream )

Ya know..............After reading this thread...I've made an observation..

You know how they say that peoples dogs sometimes look like the owner...

Well...........for those out there in TRF land..that only have one Rolex...
The model they have somewhat resembles their occupation...ie: Expy II for a news photographer etc.

Interesting......it might work for all of us...but most have a COLLECTION!

Im guessing this is for hours, minutes and seconds? How do I activate these? if i unscrew the two knobs on the top and bottom and press them, i can get the "30" dial to move, and the other button I can get the "12" dial to move... I cant get the second to move and Im not sure what purpose these have. Anyone?
What company is this? Any position open???:thumbsup :
