Recycled, Steampunk Watch

 This DOES NOT WORK. If you have a broken watch and 30-45 minutes you can steampunk it, and give it as a gift. This is meant for a shelf, because it does not tell time. Also, I made this with rck_mtn_climber.

 if you were paying attention earlier and read the notes then this is the random screw. Just screw it in, but leave some hanging out.

Step 8: Fixing up, and adding the section on the front

 The clock's hands should have been removed. On the back of the watch, there will be this battery section. Use the pliers and more strength to remove the odd shape in the center. Cut the dial where the threads end. Then place the battery section and the dial over the center of the clock face. Add hot glue. Let sit.

Step 10: Putting the wires on

 Cut off some wire and wrap it around the two screws we put on in step 9. Coil some more wire and hot glue it around the watch. Look at the pictures for more detailed instructions.

Step 13: Finishing touches

 FIx up the paint, and whatever else if you need to. If you don't need to then you're done.
