Mad Hatter Bling Pocketwatch by SteamSociety Mad Hatter Bling Pocketwatch by SteamSociety
Detail, details: [link]

If you were to time travel to a place when steam powered airships dotted the skies and the unsavory yet charismatic characters who ruled the underworld wore decadent tokens of statue and machismo, this would be the ultimate accessory. Like an ancient artifact of bling from a nonexistant sci-fi future, this decorative oversized pocketwatch can be worn and a necklace or, more practically, clipped onto the pocket or belt of your presumably awesome outfit.

Made from a metallic frame and a plexiglass front, this watch pendant is a bit bigger than my palm and weighs about as much as a small apple. It is made with real watch gears, old antique watch hands and roman numeral numbers. While this watch is non-functional, it contains a tiny metal housefly hidden among the gears. The fly was likely transported from the distant future, inadvertently turned into metal and is now doomed to remain trapped in a whimsical fishbowl like existence. For the fly's sake, lets all hope this pocketwatch makes it to many wild and entertaining events.

(you know, when I'm writing these descriptions in the throws of earth shattering sleep deprivation, I always wonder if anyone actually reads them.)

Beautiful, but I have a question. Why the '4' is it 'IIII' and not 'IV'?
Thanks!
