An stunning modern day (Circa 2000) carbon fiber over aluminum, Swiss made, Movado/ESQ men's wrist watch dial has been given a second life as a CYBERPUNK Style Tahkli! The surface of the dial has been embellished with a multitude of vintage watch parts, including winding and drive gears/wheels, screws, mounting plates and springs - along with a section of watch electronics cut out to fit the window where the digital display once was. The dial has been coated in a thick layer of epoxy resin to protect the finish and look forever, and to give it a no-snag surface.
The WHORL is made from the dial, a Mexico 20 Peso Coin, and a Swiss made stainless steel back case cover (not from this watch) - then it is mounted to a Gold-Metal-Flake Hi-Gloss Black Steel shaft with a signature John Galen heat forged hook. The bottom side of the whorl has an antique brass watch winding gear stainless steel hex nut, and several gold plated findings mounted are all mounted to finish it off.
This spindle has an amazing well balanced and fast spin and is suitable for cotton and other fine fibers. All components are permanently bonded with 2-part industrial strength epoxy resin glue.
