An artefact from the 1920's and prior. A Swiss movement, from a rectangular, men's watch, crafted in the heftier, chunkier feel of the earlier industrial style.
Artist's Notes: We've been drawn to Ancient Egypt since we were children, and we really wanted to incorporate its style into our work. Every watch movement we find is unique, akin to discovering treasure, and we felt the rectangular 'sarcophagus' shaped watch movements of the early 20th century was the perfect opportunity to incorporate the iconic ritual masks of Ancient Egypt.
Gleaming handmade brass, fashioned to the bust of an ancient pharaoh.
Recycling a 1920-30's rectangular Swiss men's watch mechanism. Notice the bevelled wheels and hand-engraved markings. Older artistic techniques that are seldom done anymore.
18mm x 38mm x 5mm.
6 Ruby Jewels. Jewels are ruby bearing-points inset by the watchmaker to reduce friction caused by the movement of rotating gears.
Stainless Steel Chain or 18ct Gold Plated Stainless Steel Chain.
