This STEAMPUNK Drop Spindle design stems from the use of a circa 1965, Railroad Style, made in Great Britain, painted metal pocket watch dial - along with an arrangement of vintage and antique authentic watch parts, including balance wheel with spring, winding gears, and screws and 12 Swarovski crystal rhinestones mounted on the surface then 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 worn and weathered original bezel and back case cover, which has additional milling and polishing done to it. There are numerous gold plated alloy findings mounted to the metallic Candy Apple Red colored steel shaft. This is a wonderful lighter 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.
