It's About Time Someone Created Hip Watch Winders: SwissKubiK.
Up until now, most of the automatic watch winders I've ever seen were very conservative and traditional in their styling. But now I've found SwissKubiK of Geneva, Switzerland who makes a much more youthful and hip, but equally functional, watch winder for those of you with automatic watches.
In addition to a large selection of colored anodized aluminum ones, wood ones and leather ones, they have a limited edition (200 of each) 'pop art' collection by artist Andrew McCarthy which features legendary actors and actresses like Audrey Hepburn, Sophia Loren, Marilyn Monroe and Steve McQueen printed upon leather:

The SwissKubiK watch winder has been entirely conceived and produced in Geneva, fully respecting Swiss quality tradition, in order to satisfy the most exacting requirements imposed by the highest-quality Swiss Watch Manufacturers.
The SwissKubiK watch winder distinguishes itself by its modern design, housed within the minimal space of a compact square cube 3.937 inches (10 cm), exclusively dedicated to the continuous rewinding of automatic mechanical timepieces.
The SwissKubiK watch winder is available in numerous colors and materials: - anodized aluminum, leather saddle style stitching, precious wood or stingray skinodized.
Versions of the watch winder are available for 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 12 or 15 watches. You may add acrylic glass hinged 'window' to each watchwinder for dust protection if so desired.
The custom 'Python', created to hold 24 watches and clad in genuine python leather:
A very special limited edition, the Joker, contains over 3, 500 full cut diamonds and is housed in 18k white gold:
• Personalized special orders can also be accommodated with specific colors or materials or for a larger collection of watches.
• For antique watches, collection timepieces or watches with specific requirements recommended by the watch manufacturers, the SwissKubiK watch winder can be programmed using the optional USB computer interface cable.
• The SwissKubiK watch winder is guaranteed 3 years from the date of purchase.
Swiss KubiK SA was founded by Philippe Subilia in December of 1998 to create, design and manufacture watches and horological products.
