    Put your Rolex onto a watch-winder.
    Then switch the mode to a uni-directional mode instead of the pendulum mode, and it will keep going in the same direction, slowly, steadily...

    No details, how to help?

    Seriously.

    This is another what I call the 'Dear Mr Architect, please design and build me a house. How much ah?' syndrome that plagues so many here.

    More details needed on this. But with regards to watch winder, it is most applicable if you want to spin a watch. However, watch winder is expensive. There is a spinning display. Rather small in sz and is very stable. You should be able to find one at gifts shop / model kit shops @ Vivo.

    Haha... yes you are correct.
    But the watch winder just came into my mind as I look at my winder every day to see my watch turning round and round...

    A musical snowglobe seems plausible. Just rip the globe from its base, sand down the top a little to keep it smooth, wind it up, place your watch on it and snap away!

    Projected cost: $50 (approx) for a large snowglobe

    use a little imaginative...

    secure your the whatever object on to something, place it on lazy susan, mount your video on tripod, title the camera to whatever angle to get the spinning effect you want.

    HOW FAST/SLOW do you want this thing to spin and are u referring to gif-type animation or real movie-capture movement?

    your question while seemingly straightforward is too general

    there IS a video section in Clubsnap......... move your thread there for better replies?

    p/s and your thread title........ what kind of bohchap/slack/nuah way to ask for help is this? 'How to Make?'

    Go sunshine plaza and look for those motorised stands that spin the figurines. If you are not buying, pretty sure they will allow usage of the demo set for a small price.

    if the item is larger, A tamiya motor using cogs system will work also. Basic electronics.
    You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.
