As I completed the repair and cleaning of this movement, I could feel myself getting excited about the anticipated ring collection I have planned for christmas 2011. This ring is one of them and features not only a vintage movement, cleaned and repaired but anouther treat too..
Completed with a gold tone pewter cast band, size 9.5, this ring is repaired and able to still tick after being wound up 20 times. The best part is I was able to keep the watch face and hands so underneath the ring it still tells time.
The inspiration behind this piece was an old black n white picture of a few men sitting around a wooden table at a local pub with a snake likesmokey haze lingering above their heads. I liked the curve of the smoke and the mobster feel of the picture so I decided to take that appeal and harness it in a unisex jewelry piece somehow without insulting the mob, of course.The mobster love came out in this original ring design complete with a vintge watch movement and the original watch case it came with when I procured the busted watch from a local thrift store.
The rings hefty look packs some statement punch and backs up the promised appeal of old school gents smokin' in the bar...
