Introduction: 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.
Step 1: Parts
pliers / wire cutters
hot glue gun
silver and gold paint
Step 2: Remove the Wrist Straps
Just pull 'em off
Step 3: Take Off Dial
use pliers to pull the dial off ( it may take some strength)
Step 4: Remove Back Covering
im not exactly sure how we did this so sorry
Step 5: Remove Outer Edge
pry this off.
note: if your watch does not have this then you can paint on the gold ring at the end.
Step 6: Remove Glass Covering and Clock
If you pry off the glass cover, the clock and some other parts will fall out.
Step 7: Add Screw for Dial
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 9: The Two Other Screws
Screw two screws into the top where the wrist straps were.
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 11: Painting
Paint the main body silver and the back and outer rings gold.
Step 12: Finishing
Place the clock, the back, and the outer ring back on the main body.
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.
