A vintage painted alloy (Swiss Made) Circa 1940 pocket watch dial is the centerpiece of this spindle. The dial has a commercial acetate Rainbow Flag art transfer applied to the surface and a number of authentic vintage and antique watch parts and Swarovski crystal rhinestones mounted to the surface before coating it in two thick layers of epoxy resin top coat to protect and create a no-snag lifetime finish. It is mounted to a whorl made from a thick steel thrust bearing with a pressed in thin alloy coin in the center - along with a large vintage brass clock gear that gives this heavy spindle great rim weight for a long spin. The bottom side has a number of vintage and antique watch gears and wheels - along with more Swarovski crystal rhinestones mounted between the arms and all is coated with an epoxy resin top coat - all mounted to one of my signature (Hi-Gloss Plum Velvet colored) steel shafts.
The shaft is made from spring steel with a heat forged hook and is colored with a 2-coat hi-temperature powder-coat paint. Dial is coated with 2 extra thick layers of epoxy and all parts are mounted with industrial 2-part epoxy.
