    Have ordered these from other suppliers. This one is well done be, clean, nice enamel paint. Rod to the head is secured through a weld so it is sturdy. Sellers did a great job of addressing a concern that happened in shipment. Bezel ring was broken and they sent the replacement quickly.

    Really cool item! Very unique! Only gripe is that it was packed rather poorly, and the clock hands were loose on arrival. Luckily we were able to fiddle them tighter. For almost an $80 clock, we expected more attention to detail. Otherwise good buy!

How it Started & About the Artist

Inspired by personal experience, I began re-purposing old car parts into clocks when I was changing the front brake rotors on my Jeep. I noticed I had created a pretty good-sized groove in one of them and thought "this would be a cool clock!" After cleaning it up and sanding it down, I began my creation. Taping off what I didn't want painted and where the original metal would show through, I began to paint. After selecting the perfect clock hands and numbers, I added them onto the brake rotor and ended up with a great looking brake rotor clock! I had no expectations to do any more since the clock was just something personal to me but after so many people came through my home and complimented me on the uniqueness, I decided I would make more for friends and family. I now offer these one-of-kind, handmade, car part clocks for sale so that others can enjoy the uniqueness of time in their own home!

My name is Kayla. My career is as a dental assistant but evenings and weekends when I have time, I create clocks from car/motorcycle/boat parts. I have a ton of fun creating these timepieces from all the different parts I find and parts I'm given, and turning them into functional art that people love to have. Each clock is unique. I do everything by my own hand which ensures that no two are ever alike. This hobby just happens to encompass my love of cars with my love of painting and creating.

My husband BJ, helps me with making these clocks come to life. He is my master fabricator! He supports me all the way and I couldn't have done any of this without him!
