I referred to this project in another project post on my Presentation Case. But I have never highlighted this items as a stand alone project. I really don’t know how many of thee I’ve made, but it must be approaching 25 – 30. I really like the end result, but frankly, am getting a little tired of making them.
But just last week a good mate called me and ask me to make one more for him. This will be the third; one for himself and two which he takes overseas and gives to friends.
I came across the idea in Dartmouth Nova Scotia in 2005 when doing a tour of the Canadian Maritime Provinces. The one I saw was made incorrectly, as the face of the clock was around the wrong way. I didn’t realize this and made mine the same way. All was fine until I gave the first one to this friend who wants another one. He used to represent a Swiss watch maker, so knew about which he spoke. You can imagine my chagrin when I had to recall my wooden wristwatches and change the straps end-for-end.
I usually choose a dark wood to represent the leather straps, and a lighter wood to represent the metal watch fob and buckles.
