This is a unique piece of American watchmaking history, made wearable into a medium to large size pendant for the modern landscape. The watches themselves were obsolete, and we thought best to dig deep into its mechanical depth to uncover its raw beauty, and justify the art-form of watchmaking and ultimately, recycle.
This set is completely made ready to wear, and is soldered for superior strength. The parts have been fixed with extra TLC and are very much self-contained, and built for longevity.
