Elegant and sophisticated with an edge! Steampunk watch movement gear necklace featuring a Swiss Benrus Watch Company vintage watch movement with exposed gears, fifteen jewel bearings and intricate mechanisms set on an antiqued brass teardrop pendant. You will feel awesome wearing this necklace!

This watch will not tell you the time, as it is more than 50 years old and is now in the upcycled phase of its life. This part of the watch would only be visible when cleaning and maintaining the watch, a testament to the true craftsmanship and pride in work of the watchmakers.

The antiqued brass chain measures approximately 19" (18" plus a 1" extender for some length flexibility). The and the pendant measures 1.25" wide and 1.75" tall - see photos for more details. The back of the pendant has an antiqued brass compass rose stamping. This is a perfect statement piece!

The Victorian era was a bridge between old traditions and new technologies. At the 1851 Great Exhibition in London, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert received the first mechanical keyless wind watches, making pocket watches and watch fobs popular for both men and women until the mid 20th century. While pocket watches had been worn for more than a century, wrist watches were introduced around 1900, called "wristlets" were introduced, in part because of the development of a more affordable jewel bearings production process, which made smaller, more accurate watches possible. Assumed to be a passing fad, wrist watches caught on and were most popular in the 1920s and 1930s, which is why most of the watches I work with are Art Deco from this period. An emblem of a past era of craftsmanship, these mechanical watches have real or synthetic jewel bearings, originally made with ruby, garnet, diamond, and sapphire. Many watches have the name of the watch maker, intricate tooling or design work, seen only when the watch was repaired, cleaned, and maintained. Celebrate analog!
