Whippoorwill is made with recycled watch parts called balance cocks. His torso is made from a rare engraved balance bridge made in the 1880's while his wing is from another slightly later watch. His eye is a tiny watch jewel (ruby). He is attached to his chain using yet another watch gear. His leg is a tiny watch parts that holds gears onto the watch plate. He is soldered together (never glued) using lead free silver bearing solder. He is one of a kind and unique in the world...there will never be another exactly like him.
Whippoorwill is 22mm wide by 20mm tall and comes on an 18" antiqued silver plated cable chain of links measuring 1.2mm. Longer or short chains may be made, so just let us know in the notes section at checkout if you need a different size. A silver clasp fastens the chain together.
