My Homemade Pocket Watch!
I really love steampunk, and i've always wanted to have some victorian-era things.
one sunny day, i saw an old wristwatch, a chain from my wallet, a metal cup, and a can of hairspray, then all of a sudden, a eureka moment occured, A POCKET WATCH!!!
i'm wearing this thing in school, i'm very sorry wristwatch, but you have to go....
so here are the pictures of the finish product:
here you can see it's size, it's as big as my pet turtle:
let's take a look inside:
the whole clock mechanism came from an old wrist watch. the front cover came from a metal cup with a small hinge the i have created from scrap metals, you can see on the cover side that i have etched my "pseudonym" on it.
here you can see the clock mechanism, i have created another hinge in the clock's face so it can be opened and i can adjust the time and change the battery when it is flat:
here is it's back view, it is created from the but-end of a hairspray can:
side-view, the lock mechanism is the hardest part to make, but it worked :
front cover on the insides:
face with a 24-hour sticker attached (i'm used at 24-hour time):
don't judge my work, it's my first time on a full metallic project.
that's all for now!
cheers! - ⁰ℨ
