Spare Parts Creations

Post by chrislovessushi »

Anyone ever do anything interesting with spare pocket watch parts? I threw this together today since I have a few spare A6497s laying around as well as several Colobri/Arnex cases. Most of the cases are pretty generic but I liked how ornate this case is and it just so happens to have my initials on the exterior. Too bad the inscription inside is to “Skeeter” :lol:

This looks great, I don't think we've done much in terms of modding pocket watches, even back on HF1.0 not many examples.
