Brass parts, watch parts, leather straps, brass wire, bubble level, punched gears and brass plated rivets adorns this watch.
Thanks for watching
I think I have the silver version of that watch!
I saw this in my random favorites just now, and recognized it. ^_^ I faved it before I got the watch from Amazon.
I wanted to make a band for it, but I hadn't figured out exactly how to go about it, and my idea wasn't this intricate or anything. I was thinking of just putting it on a silver chain, or maybe something black (or black as well as a silver chain), since it looked nice on the original black band.
Though... after a week or two, I got bored with the watch. It didn't keep time very well at all, and I couldn't find a place that would adjust it for me. I'm more of a casual watch wearer anyhow.
It's nice that you incorporated the watch into the design. It seems like a lot of watch related artworks I've seen involve just taking the pieces out of watches, which just doesn't seem very interesting to me, who likes my things functional. It's also nice that the cuff and parts seem to match the watch.
THAT is one epic watch.
This seems great!! Congrats!
You can find it (or its sister) on my Etsy Shop (Isil WorkShop on Etsy)
Does the watch actually tell time? O3O
And will give the good hour really more often if used like automatic watches are made to be used (the power comes from the natural motion of the wearer's arm, to provide energy to run the watch)
Sorry, but I don't really understand half of what you just said, heh.
It's told that even a broken clock is right twice a day...
Here, the watch used is an automatic watch. To resume it, an automatic watch is also called a self winding watch. It is designed to gain power from the natural movements of the wrist on the person who is wearing the watch, so manually winding it every day is unnecessary. You do have to wind it to get its power started, and winding is also required when the watch gets low on power due to not being used for a period of time. Wind an automatic watch by turning the crown enough to jump start the power source, and then allowing the self winding mechanism to work.
