The Machinist was created with nineteen different recycled watch stems. Each stem was snipped into the correct size for a "bone" in each finger, and each bone was soldered together with lead free silver bearing solder to produce a finger. When all fingers were created, they were soldered together onto a tiny watch plate. After the hand was formed and shaped into a clawlike grasp, it was soldered onto an 19th century copper european balance wheel assembly created with five different antique watch gears. A very small watch gear holds the entire assembly onto the pendant bail. This is a very special and one of a kind piece, never to be reproduced exactly.
The Machinist is 18mm wide and 19mm tall. It comes on an 18" antiqued silver plated chain with links measuring 1.7mm. Longer or shorter chains can be made to order, so let us know in the checkout section if you require something different.
