FrontRunners: Block of Time

    OriginTimes has the perfect winder for the new Parmigiani Bugatti Super Sport watch ("The Super Car to Watch,")—and 15 other timepieces. The $98,500 Big Block Winder (www.origintimes.com) is designed around a Bugatti Veyron engine block and accommodates a watch in each of its 16 cylinder cavities. OriginTimes—a luxury brand launched in the spring by MTE Bewegungstechnik, a German company that has been making watch winders since 1995—equipped each cavity with a winding module that can be programmed according to the direction, duration of activity, and idle periods that a particular watch requires.
