Skyscraper by AMechanicalMind Skyscraper by AMechanicalMind
buy: [link]

Skyscraper 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 steel gear train gears, face gears, and antique European balance wheels. 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.

Skyscraper is 20mm wide by 47mm high and comes on a 16" antiqued silver plated cable chain with links measuring 1.3mm and connected with a lobster clasp. Longer or shorter chains are available on request, so please note your size preference in the comments section during checkout if you need a different size.

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

Thank you. It's a bit different from what I normally do. I personally like it much better in real life.
