    Brilliant! I'd definitely buy one!

    because this is instructables, would you mind posting directions along with the pictures

    thx

    I would love to buy 1 of these.

    Can I have that watch? I don't feel like trying to make one :)

    Amazing work. Have you thought about making a pocket watch version? Basically, replacing the flip-top cover with your iris.

    Hi, your work is amazing! Just one question: How did you open up the clock barrel? Thanks

    *NEWBIE HERE*
    Where can I read the instruction here?
    XD

    I've read and re-read this instructable at least a dozen times. I just love this design. So simple, so clean, so well executed. You da man, goggleman!

    Hey gogglerman :)
    i love your work but i´m not able to do this by myself...which means i could never creat such watch.
    i´m from germany and now i asked myself wether you would sell one of these or not?!
    would be happy to hear from you. :D

    Hi! Could you please send me a list of the included items aswell as the size of everything, because I would really want to make one of those!

    if you would be so kind as to give me a list of what was used as well as sizes i would really appreciate that

    A genuine work of art, sir. Hats off to you.

    Beginner's steampunk's question : how do you manage to cut the brass ? I understand that you use a template but then, what kind of tools do you use ?
    If you know a tutorial for steampunk's art, it would be fine to give me the adress (for example I don't really understand the benefit/impact of using the propane gas...)

    Thanks !

    Hey gogglerman! I absolutely love this watch! May I ask from what clock you got your spring drum casing?

    Yes, could you please tell me what kind of clock? A wall clock or a mantle? And what size was the plate, because I am having trouble finding the correct sized clock drum.

    Thanks again!

    The diameter of the original drum-50mm. Watch the wall type their name and brand is not known as a drum was received by me in the form of scrap.
