Time Flies by AMechanicalMind Time Flies by AMechanicalMind
buy: [link]

Time Flies is made from the parts of very old watches (some from 19th century pocket watches) that have been disused and given or thrown away. Her parts include an old silver watch face, and numerous differently sized brass gears. Rather than just being glued onto a chain, her parts have been stripped from watch movements, cleaned, and hand arranged into a new lifeform. All of her pieces are soldered on (never glued and resin-ed) using a silver bearing lead free solder which will last indefinitely. She 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.

Time Flies is 42mm wide by 26mm high and comes on a 16" premium sterling silver cable chain with links measuring 1.5mm. 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.

I've needed a bit of differentiation lately. Hearts are selling so well that I don't have time to do much else. Glad you like this one!
