Antique Timepiece (STEAMPUNK) Style Drop Spindle No.124:

RARE 1950's Longines Conquest Pocket Watch Dial, 2" Acrylic Whorl with Antique to Vintage Watch Gears, Ruby Jewels, and Components mounted to a Metallic Champagne Steel Shaft

Weight: 1.0 ounce (30 grams), Whorl: Acrylic .3” x 2” (7.6mm x 51mm)
Shaft: 3/32” dia. Metallic Champagne x Overall Length: 8.75” (22.2cm)

This STEAMPUNK Drop Spindle design stems from the use of a rare Swiss made Longines Conquest Pocket Watch Dial Circa 1955. This unusual solid M.C. Escher style design, with gold plated Arabic Numerals and the Longines Logo is embellished with an antique balance wheel, polished steel winding gears, and a large ruby watch jewel in the center of the second hand dial. The dial is permanently mounted to a 2" polished nickel pocket watch bezel and filled with epoxy resin to give the appearance of a watch crystal. The dial and bezel are mounted to a 2" diameter acrylic whorl and edge milled to a smooth surface.

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. All components are assembled with an industrial 2-part epoxy glue.

The bottom side of this top-whorl drop spindle has a silver plated 1" diameter bead cap and 6 Light Siam AB Swarovsi Crystal rhinestones mounted to the surface and is finished off with silver plated findings. This is a wonderful light and rim weighted spindle that spins great.
