I made a gorgeous precision time piece out of the cardboard box that contained my Christopher Ward watch!

I know this is a little off topic but I wanted to show that even the box that contained my Christopher Ward watch has a use!

I bought my Christopher Ward watch some years ago and kept the box because I liked it so much.

I'm a hobbiest maker and during our pandemic, I made a unique clock. I went looking for a suitable presentation box and I found it, courtesy of Christopher Ward. Now, it's not really the centrepiece of the new clock, but trust me, it IS the box that contained my Battle of Britain commemorative timepiece!

You can see the clock here: https://youtu.be/MkVFzKd4jpo

If you're interested in how I did it, I've documented it here :http://www.whatimade.today/making-a-ver ... t-clock-2/

That’s impressive. A great conversation piece too! :clap:

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.
