No, the winder is not on the wrong side; it’s a left-handed watch! LOL At any rate, it’s a very nice looking “watch.” I remember one that was similar hanging on the wall in the break room of a company where I worked about 40 years ago. I always loved it and thought it was really unique. Thanks for posting and renewing old memories!

P.S. Yes, in case you’re wondering, there is such a thing as a left-handed watch. Many years ago I had a catalog of items for left-handers which included watches with the winding stem on the opposite side.

Well done whimsical piece. As a piece of art, it needs it’s own space, not competing w/ other household items. Does it tell time? Not requisite but also not difficult using a clockworks kit. Reaally an unusual and fun piece.

That shows a lot of imagination and you did a wonderful job on it.

What a great idea! Thanks for the idea, I have a few wall clocks in storage that I will reclaim and put back into service now.

Looks like it’s just hanging loosely from the unfinished stand, yes? Have you tried hanging it on the wall? I’m wondering if it would look better that way?

Either way you display this piece, it’s a wonderful wrist watch, with excellent wood selection and execution of the idea.

You can call it the Mollydooker Watch!
