This STEAMPUNK Drop Spindle design stems from the use of a 1930's USA Made GRUEN Watch Company Brass Pocket Watch Dial . The design incorporates antique to vintage (1880’s to 1970’s) watch escapement wheel, polished steel winding gear and a ruby jewel as well as a steel gear and spring around the shaft - all bonded to the surface of the dial and coated with 2 thick layers of epoxy resin finish (approximately 3/32" thick).
The WHORL is made from a laser cut acrylic disc that I've edge milled and polished to soften the edges. The shaft is made from high carbon (spring) steel with a forged hook that has a 2-part powder coat paint finish applied for a beautiful look and feel. There are 12 iridescent topaz Swarovski crystal rhinestones mounted to the whorl around the dial and they, and all other components are assembled with an industrial 2-part epoxy glue. The bottom side of this top-whorl drop spindle has a large (1.75" dia.) vintage clock gear attached for added stability and rim weight.
