This Steampunk necklace features a lady's pocket watch in an exquisite rolled gold case. The silver mechanism has delicate and intricate guilloché machine engraving with bright brass cogs gleaming beneath. This is not a replica and is a beautiful example of early 19th century pocket watches.

This particular watch was made Waltham in 1915; the design was very popular at the time because it could be worn on the wrist, as a brooch or on a chain as I have it here. Most pocket watches of this age had ruby pivot points - interestingly, the main jewel on this one is a sapphire - central to the timing needle, it is just visible under magnification and can be seen in the first image.

The case is in wonderful condition for its age and the back opens and closes nicely. I've mounted the watch back (which is inside the case) with an ornate Waltham watch face - I've not found one so beautiful before - and set the hands at 3 minutes to 12. A timely reminder to all...

The mechanism is mounted with a silver swallow, a traditional symbol of hope, freedom and loyalty. At the bottom of the case is a 'fold-out' loop (an unusual feature, they are usually fixed in position) from which can be hung a favorite drop.

The case - 1.2 inches or 30mm across and 7mm thick
Overall length of the focal, from chain to the bottom of the case is 2 inches or 50mm.

The chain is a nice quality antiqued brass in a 2.5 x 3mm flat cable link, 840mm long - designed to look great with long line tops and knitwear and long enough to wear over a shirt collar. To guide with proportion, the torso in photograph 5 is a size 12, actual size.

This is a unique piece of Steampunk inspired jewellery. It is designed and handmade in New Zealand by Janne Perry of Closetgothic and will be an amazing conversation starter wherever it is worn.
