This weekend I started an all new USB key with some clock parts inside. The new thing this time is that I wanted to put a real functional clock inside.
So I found a mechanical watch movement on the Internet that was actually working, and I drilled a hole for the watch through a wood stick of predetermined section. The hardest part here was to respect the shape of the movement.
Then I cut the piece and sculpted it in order to insert the dials, gears and other parts. I also put some tint and varnish to give a good shiny aspect to the wood.
One or two hours later, here is the result I got.
Last part I made was the cap, with two big gears on it.
Still one thing to do: find a way to stick the glass on the watch.
