    Default wind up

    Hi,
    Iíd like to know a common expression for such situations:
    -Everybody is tired/ Iím afraid we have too little time left. Itís time to stop our work.

    Is Itís time we wound up good enough? Any more besides Letís call it a day?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thank you, Tdol.
    I have to ask my first question again, sorry.
    Is It’s time we wound up good enough? Do you ever say so?

    Yes that would be perfectly fine, and is regularly used at the end of the AGM of the Ancient Order of Watchmakers, Horologers, and Sundial makers.
