A worn and weathered (likely Swiss Made) Circa 1940 silver alloy plated pocket watch dial with a double rainbow acetate art transfer is the centerpiece of this spindle. The dial has a number of authentic vintage and antique watch parts and Swarovski crystal rhinestones to the surface before coating in two thick layers of epoxy resin top coat to protect and create a no-snag lifetime finish. It is mounted to the bottom of a Eisenhower silver dollar and a 1.5" vintage brass clock gear with cog on the top of this unique whorl.
The top side of this spindle has an arrangement of 12 vintage and antique watch parts - including brass drive wheel blanks and brass winding gears - along with 12 Siam and emerald green color Swarovski crystal rhinestones - all set within the brass clock gear and coated in two thick layers of epoxy resin for a smooth and durable finish. There is an additional brass clock gear, stainless steel hex nut, and gold plated findings all mounted to one of my signature (Metallic Cobalt Blue colored) steel shafts - for a very unique heavy weight support spindle that has an amazing spin that will work on pretty much any fiber you can whirl on it :-).
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.
