A (USA Made) painted brass 1940's Elgin National Watch Company pocket watch dial 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 a 1/8" thick acrylic disc, steel disc, and an antique brass clock gear that makes up this unique whorl - then it is lathe mounted and turned and polished to a smooth outer rim surface.
The top side of this spindle has an arrangement of 20 vintage and antique brass watch drive wheels and Siam 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 a stainless steel hex nut and gold plated bead placed atop the clock gear - all mounted to one of my signature (Black-Gold 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.
