My New Watch Stand

Recommended Posts

Hi Haggis,

Those are really superb, especially the top one

on what looks like a piece of Burr Walnut ?

have you thought of going into small scale production ?

if so, I for one would be very interested.

regards Shiny

I could make a small amount for members if they are interested, Do you think £20 would be a reasonable cost including postage for UK only. Note all my stands are individual and hand made, no two will be the same, although I have several designs that work very well. The burr wood is very difficult to get. I only have a couple that I could sell. Others are made from Oak, teak and other hard woods. I try to be as creative as possible yet maintaining a well balanced stand. Stands hold either 2 or 1 watch depending on design. Anyone interested should measure their wrists using a length of paper, mark the contact point and measure the paper, in MM. THIS WILL ENSURE that the stand is not too big for your watch. I will send photos of a stand to any member before postage.

Hi Stevie, as you can see I am still trying to make the perfect stand. I am pleased that you are still happy with yours. The red watch is upside down which fooled me, lol. All the best.

The most important factor is i still use which i think speaks volumes for the design.

I think for me the best inprovement that could be made would be to make the cicumferance dimention the same both ways so that you can put a watch on in any configuration of crown up, down. left or right. I would be able to check how a watch was running and for fault finding.

I dont see this as a fault but as an improvement.

I think you are right, but it would be a circle, or a rotating mount might work better? Pause for thought!! Will try that next. THX.

WELL STEVIE, YOU CERTAINLY GAVE ME A CHALLENGE. :wallbash: :sweatdrop: So now rotating mounts 360 degrees and stand sits at 90 degrees to enable side mount for checking your watch.

Wow that is a great design Derek!

How did you manage to put that design together? looks great mate.

Well Citz to answer your question about the design, I was reading the Karma Sutra and thought number 46 looked like a possible position for the mount. :lol: :censored: :eek: Getting the rotation was quite simple and can be achived using one hand. Lovely watches above.
