Very nice!

Yes, quite nice! From what did you scavenge the gears to make it?

Those would appear to be the escapement and arbor gears from a larger clock movement, perhaps a Franz Hermle or Aristocrat?

You, sir, have likely started something; Perhaps a way for steampunks to discreetly identify themselves to each other. Every one would be different in some way, but the theme would be the same. I know I want one to adorn my drover coat or hat now. *scurries off to roodle about in the "Toybox"*

"It works!" -BOOM- "Ah... heh... Uhm, it's not supposed to do that..."

Less is NOT more... Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was just a cheapskate!

Back off. I'm doing Science! (Being resized) ^^

A great lapel pin but also a great lapel; where did you get that jacket?

Thank you all, the clock was a Centurion 35 day, made in Korea
It would be marvelous to see some one out and about adorned with some variation of this pin. As, it's purpose is just that, a way to I distinguish myself as a Steampunk.

The jacket is a lether blazer from Wilsons Leather.

I've wanted to make my motorcycle jacket a little Steampunk, and this looks to be just the way... Excuse me, the workshop is calling.
