This STEAMPUNK Drop Spindle design stems from the use of a rare 1910 - 1925 BURLINGTON (made by the Illinois Watch Co.) porcelain enamel pocket watch that is adorned with a delicate, but still in good shape, acetate print of a windmill scenery.  The dial is adorned with an antique to vintage (1880’s to 1970’s) balance wheel, escapement wheel, and ruby jewel placed in the second hand space and coated in two thick layers of epoxy resin.  

The WHORL is made from a 2" Laser cut acrylic disc that I've edge milled and polished to soften the edges.  The symmetrical STEAMPUNK DESIGN steampunk design uses two identical sets of black and polished winding gears, springs and levers, screws, large and small brass drive gears and ruby/ruby cap jewels all arranged on the acrylic whorl and embedded in two thick layers of epoxy resin. There are 12 Topaz AB color Swarovski crystal rhinestones that are mounted on top of the resin and around the dial. 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. The bottom side of this top-whorl drop spindle has a large (1.75" dia.) vintage clock gear attached for added stability and added rim weight.  All parts are assembled with an industrial 2-part epoxy glue.
