I really enjoy the steampunk aesthetic and was inspired to make a wristclock while working on crayon holders for my daughter's birthday.
Step 1: Tools/Materials
1x4x8 furring strip
Spray Paint - Aged Copper and Gold
Various screws/spring/whatever inspires you
Drill and bits
Finger nail polish remover
I scavenged the latch from a lap table that you could angle.
