Antique Timepiece ~Steampunk~ Tahkli Style Support Spindle No.95
~ New WHORL Design Medium Weight Spindle ~
BRIEFLY: Made from a total of 26 individual parts - this is a Made in 1919 New York Standard Watch Co. Plated Brass Pocket Watch Dial - made with 12 Swarovski Crystal Rhinestones, Antique Watch Winding Gear, and a Laminated Brass Clock Gear, Stainless Steel and Acrylic Discs Whorl - Finished off with Stainless Steel and Gold Plated Findings, and a Stainless Steel Hex Nut - all mounted to a Black-Gold Coated Heat Forged Steel Shaft
WEIGHT/DIMENSIONS: 1.6 oz. (41g), Whorl dia. 1.48” x 7.9" Length (38mm x 20.3cm),
This is the Smaller Diameter (of the 2 that I make) Steel Shaft = .109" (2.6mm)
An absolutely gorgeous example of fine craftsmanship, this is a 1919 (removed from original movement by me/date verified by serial number), Made in USA by the New York Standard Watch Company dial wit Art Nouveau style etching in the center and gold plated Arabic numerals - along with a polished steel watch winding gears, and 12 Black Diamond AB color Swarovski Crystal Rhinestones mounted around the perimeter. The dial was acquired with heavy patina and oil coating from spending decades in a watchmaker's bench - and it has been selectively polished to reveal highlights of the design before adding the crystals and coating it a thick layer of epoxy resin to protect the finish and look forever.
The WHORL is made up from the 5 epoxy glue laminated components, including the dial, two 1/16" thick acrylic discs, one stainless steel disc, and two antique brass clock gears (w/cog attached). The finished whorl, along with a stainless steel hex nut and several gold and silver plated findings are all mounted to a new raw steel shaft with a signature John Galen forged hook for a fitting raw Steampunk look.
This spindle spins fast and long due to excellent rim weight, the small diameter shaft, and a lighter/medium size whorl design. All components are permanently bonded with 2-part industrial strength epoxy resin glue.
