Hugh writes haiku poems based upon movies he's seen and then makes artwork to go with the haikus. We thought it would be interesting to meld our two mediums and this is one of the watches we have come up with. Basically Hugh creates the design for the watch and I take care of the engineering and fabrication of it.
Hugh's haiku for this piece is:

I may or may not have this item in stock. If it is not in stock it usually takes 4 - 6 weeks for production, so if you need it quickly, please convo me first to see if it's available.
Please note that all of my sterling silver watches come with rhodium plating on them to prevent tarnishing. A requirement for rhodium plating is to have nickel plated on the item before it is rhodium plated. If you are allergic to nickel, don't worry! Palladium can be substituted for nickel in the plating process or all plating can be omitted. If you would like to purchase one of my watches and change what type of plating it has, please make a note for me during the checkout process. Thanks!
