I bought this chain to go with a 98 year old pocket watch purchased from the same seller and the two item look stunning together. Again I had excellent and fast feedback from the seller as to the compatibility of the two items. The chain itself is in very good condition, the spring in the clip is good and strong and closes accurately. Quick delivery and good packaging mad for a very good purchasing experience.

This is a beautiful watch in very good condition for 98 years old, it has been running now for nearly a week and is running a little fast but in general is keeping good time (how accurate do we really need to be) I had excellent communication from the seller and the watch arrived very quickly and in some good and robust packaging
How I got into making steamy badges and medals
Being a person who desires to work with my hands, when I got into steampunk I decided to begin by putting together the character of Colonel James Von Siegfried. After purchasing a couple of items, I decided I wanted to create my own. I began purchasing old clocks and brass stampings, watch works, pocket watch dials, learning how others make these items and searching high and low for unique and fun accouterments for the discerning steampunk.
Around the web
Col. James Von Siegfried
Col Von Siegfried is a sometime member of the Aether Brigade in the Bay area of San Francisco. His relatively recent interest in Steampunk and desire to create with his hands has led him to create unique steamy bits and pieces for other steampunks.
The Countess is a collector of intrigue and whimsy and also takes all of the temporal photos of the shop items. Her photography is a key part of the shop.
