    Sweeeet!

    That looks like fun! Did you use a real watch for the parts? Acrylic for the cover? Pivot?

    But wouldn't it be a little big for a pocket . . . . . Well, maybe not a work apron pocket!

      Love that! What did you use to line the box? The top is REALLY clever -- I assume the watch had already ceased to work? Very creative!

          Thanks for taking time to post everyone, to answer a few questions: yes Carole the watch is a real pocket watch I took apart, yes the crystal is acrylic, and I used embedded magnets to pivot the cover.
          Patty I lined the box with Suede Tex flocking. Lots of folks here use this stuff. You can purchase the adhesive same color as the flocking if you wish. Personally I just use the same color of latex craft paint mixed with some white glue, then use a salt shaker to "salt" the flocking on. Let it dry at least a day before shaking the excess off. Others have different methods, so if you want to try it, just search the forum for flocking.

                              Very neat idea WD. I hope you didn't use a working watch or if you did you know how to put it back together.
