RDI : Watch winders reach new heights

An extension of the mechanical gems made by the most prestigious brands, the K10 rotating watch-winder collection designed by Swiss company RDI reflects the nature of the most refined timepieces : elegant and simple on the outside, sophisticated inside. Equipped with 16 programs and available in four versions, the K10 line features a choice of finely carved or lacquered columns, walls decorated with lacquered glass or leather, and exclusive strap holders adjustable to fit two sizes. Its doors may vary according the wishes of the customer, who can indeed also choose to customize the entire object. At the helm of RDI, Charles Kaeser explains : “When creating this new watch winder, I consulted a number of collectors who enabled me to produce a model that has become a gem in itself and worthy of housing exceptional watches.” Thanks to the ingenious overlaid rings, watch collectors can build their own winder tower, or opt for the even more spectacular pyramid version. Artisans show no signs of running out of inspirational dreams for connoisseurs of fine objects the world over !
