Steampunk Sun/Moon Dial Pendant by Joshuadsanchez Steampunk Sun/Moon Dial Pendant by Joshuadsanchez
Steampunk pendant constructed out of a slightly modified mechanical wind watch movement. The movement is held in place by a sterling silver frame and 22k gold plated miniature nuts and bolts. It is hanging from a rubber cord necklace.

The movement has maintained its mechanical and time keeping capabilities. As you wind the stem, the hairspring is wound, giving power to the watch. The movement of the balance wheel is visible at the top of the piece, while the sun/moon dial will slowly turn at the bottom. While you may not be able to tell the exact time, the watch will indeed tell the time :).

The watch is a mechanical wind which means you would need to wind it every day for it to continue keeping time. Otherwise you would have to reset it to the proper "time."

Thanks for looking!

Thank you for the compliment and the interest. At the moment it is looking like it will be around $130 - $150. This one was more of a prototype. Now that I now how to make another, I'll actually keep track of my time and material costs. That is my guess right now though. I'll now for certain next week. Thanks again!
