BRIEFLY: 1940's US Made Elgin National Watch Co. Military Pocket Watch Dial with Commercial Acetate PHOENIX Art Transfer, Brass Clock Gear, Acrylic Disc, 2-Wheel Antique Clock Chime Wheel with Cog and Lock Screws for a Whorl, and Polished Steel Winding Gears and Stainless Steel Nut - all mounted to a John Galen Signature Black-Gold Steel Shaft.
WEIGHT/DIMENSIONS: 1.9 oz. (53), Whorl dia. 1.8” x 8.5" Length (46mm x 21.6cm),
This is the Larger Diameter Shaft (of the 2 that I make) = .137" (3.4mm) in Metal Flake Black-Gold
This unique spindle has a weathered and worn Circa 1940's US Made Elgin Military type brass pocket watch dial that is adorned with a commercial acetate art transfer of a Phoenix - along with a balance wheel and spring, a complications movement gear, and two Siam colored Swarovski Crystal Rhinestones attached to the surface and coated with 2 thick coats of clear epoxy resin for a lifetime finish.
The dial makes up part of a multi piece WHORL that is made from (top to bottom) the 1940's dial, a 1.75" brass clock gear, an acrylic disc, and a two piece chime wheel (with cog and lock screws intact) from a mid-1800's grandfather clock. Two polished steel winding gears and a stainless steel nut are mounted to bottom of one of my (large diameter) signature (Gold Metal Flake Black) 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.
