Hypnotic by AMechanicalMind Hypnotic by AMechanicalMind
buy: [link]

Hypnotic is made from the parts of very old watches (some from 19th century pocket watches) that have been disused and given or thrown away. His parts include a spiral balance wheel, normal balance wheel, and two date wheels that have been reversed and sandwiched around the brass gears. Rather than just being glued onto a chain, his parts have been stripped from watch movements, cleaned, and hand arranged into a new lifeform. All of his pieces are soldered on (never glued and resin-ed) using a silver bearing lead free solder which will last indefinitely. He is not a mass produced watch movement, but a new and completely unique in the world piece of unique art, hand designed and assembled by a human being.

Hypnotic is 22mm wide by 22mm high and comes on an 18" silver plated cable chain with links measuring 1.7mm and connected with a ring clasp.

Premium Sterling Silver Round Cable chains are also available at extra cost:

Simple beauty at its finest, and to think, we're looking at the gizzards of a dead pocket watch...
Doctor Who themed for sure, a very kitchy must have item

Seriously, where do you even find spiral balance wheels?

I find them very, very rarely in some bulk parts that I get. Always try to make them a centerpiece when they are found.
