I am trying to modify my watch in a similar fashion, I was wondering where you got that small compass? Awesome work! :D

I think I got that one from an old keychain but i'm sure you just have to do a google search for "small compass" you wont have any problem finding some.

thank you, it's an ancient device for tracking the stars, telling time and finding your position. I made this one to be most accurate from LA :)

I'm making more :D I think i'm going to open an etsy account to sell them at fairly reasonable prices. I'm doing a lot of variations with a steampunk slant (just like that stuff)

Which is awesome really! The problem is I will hopefully be doing my MBA in a few months and will not earn for close to 2 years. I will lose out on SO much of your stuff that way.

NOES!

*bawls*

I bet your stuff will sell like hotcakes. Heck I'D advertise you.:bucktooth:

Where did you get the parts to make that? I'm looking to make a steampunk watch of my own, and that is almost EXACTLY what I had in mind!

Dude, if I ever get a watch I want that one! Actually, you could give me a Rolex and I wouldn't wear it, whereas I could kill for something like this^^
