    Nothing is impossible but finding the tool to wind the steel into might be a bit tricky. I was at a BHI meeting a while ago given by a gentleman who had trained at one of the swiss watch schools, the first Englishman to do so. During his time there he was required to make every single component of a pocket watch including the case, dial etc. It can be done but finding the correct steel and the winding tool would be a problem I think.
    I found this link which might be of some use, it gives you a brief description of the method.
