Step 1: Gather Your Materials
You will need:
an old or broken pocket watch
Step 2: Opening Your Pocket Watch
If your pocket watch is a snapback like mine, you will need to pry it open with tweezers/pliers. Turn it over and look for a small opening. Put the pointed edge of pliers in it to open the pocket watch case.
Step 3: Start Taking Parts Out
The first thing I took out was a white and gray plastic piece.
Step 4: Take Out the Clock Face
When you remove the clock face, you can get the clock hands.
Step 5: Remove the Clock Hands
Use the pliers to remove the clock hands.
Step 6: Customize the Clock Face
Put the clock hands in the pocket watch case. You can customize the clock face by painting it or putting stickers on it. I used pliers to take off the top layer of the clock face.
Step 7: Take Apart the Other Watch Pieces
I removed the watch battery and little metal parts.
Step 8: Put All the Pieces in the Case
After you are done removing the pocket watch pieces, place them in the case.
Step 9: Replace the Clock Face
Put the clock face back into the pocket watch case.
Step 10: Put the Back Piece Into the Watch
I put the plastic piece back into the pocket watch so the clock face wouldn't be loose.
Step 11: Close the Case
I snapped the back of the pocket watch on the case to close it.
Step 12: Finish It Off
Just put a necklace chain on it and you're done!
