Step 7: Final touches
The ornate switch from an old table lamp slid into the hole left in the watch case from the handle it had when it was still a flour shifter. A locking nut that fit over the end was glued onto it inside the case and the chain from a dollar store dog leash was attached to it. The double brass clip was cut down with the Dremel and a hole drilled into one end of it so that it could be attached to the chain.
A decorative metal leaf that we had come across was the painted silver (we wanted to paint it gold to match the gold metal back but was out of gold paint) and a hole drilled into the front watch cover. The leaf was attached to the cover using a small nut and bolt from the stand for the alarm clock casing.
