This STEAMPUNK Drop Spindle design stems from the use of a stunning and uncommon, made in USA in 1976, metallic blue Westclox Scepter pocket watch dial that is in perfect condition - along with vintage and antique authentic watch parts, including brass drive, winding, and complications gears, escapement wheel, watch screws, and and Swarovski crystal rhinestones - all coated in a thick layer of epoxy resin for long life finish and a "no-snag" surface. The dial is mounted to a milled acrylic ring and attached to its original bezel and back case cover that has a 1.75" Brass clock gear and cog mounted inside for an amazing and well balanced whorl. There is a stainless steel taper spring and numerous stainless steel, and silver and gold plated alloy findings mounted to the Metallic Champagne colored steel shaft. This is a wonderful medium weight drop spindle with an abundance of rim weight for a really amazing and long spin.
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. All components are assembled with an industrial 2-part epoxy glue.
