"Avant-garde" watch

... Watch What happens: solar, water, sand, outdoor, cuckoo... And those from an ordinary glass Cup and saucer. Clockwork you can either purchase in store or take of the old clock. Please note that the shafts for mounting the shooter was long enough and passed through the bottom of the saucer with its depth.


MATERIALS
glass Cup with saucer
galvanized wire with a diameter of 0.9 mm
clockwork
a thin wire

TOOLS
pencil, paper and a compass
clippers
pliers
pliers with tapered jaws
drill and drill bits for glass
insulating tape


Put an inverted saucer on a sheet of paper and circle it. Draw the inner circle with a diameter of 7.5 cm and less. Fold a sheet of paper four times so that the bends are passed through a Central point. Straighten and draw the numbers of the dial between the two circles so that they all settled down in one continuous line. The numbers should be evenly distributed along the circumference. The pliers and pliers with tapered jaws bend the numbers of galvanized wire, using the drawing as a template.

Perhaps it would take several attempts. Remember, all part numbers must be made from a single piece of wire, including for numbers 10, 11 and 12.

Remove the hands with the movement, noting how they are mounted on the shafts. Bend your two hands from galvanized wire, the minute hand should be longer than hour. Check that their bases are firmly attached to the shafts of hour and minute hands respectively.

Make a wire bezel the same diameter as the edge of the saucer so that its ends overlap at least one-half of the circumference. Connect the ends and encircled them with a thin wire. Make a circle of wire equal to the diameter of the inner circle of the template; its ends also overlap.

Wrap thin wire inner bezel, consistently tying him the numbers. Wrap the wire with a constant pitch and in between digits, and around their bases. Attach the external bezel, similar to primative to it the tops of the digits.

Make holders to attach the wire of the dial to the Cup and the saucer, cut five pieces of wire the desired length — it should last for the distance from the edge of the saucer to the rim of the Cup when inverted Cup placed on an inverted saucer. The pliers make a hook on one end all the cuts and spiral on the other end.

Engage the hooks of the two holders on the outer rim of the dial on either side of the numeral 12, and the hooks of the other three holders for the rim and figures 3, b and 9. Firmly fasten them.

Cut a piece of wire of such length that they can double-wrap it around the rim of the Cup. The pliers make a small flat spirals on both ends. Guide the wire through the handle of the Cup and around it. Twist the ends of half-turn so that the wire tightly around the Cup.

Will recepite the ends of the wire of the clamp is made in step 8, and remove it from the Cup. Later he will be attached to the dial Cup and saucer. Set aside the clamp and Cup.

Using a glass drill bit, carefully drill in the center of the plate hole for the axis arrows of the clock mechanism. Don't forget to stick a piece of adhesive tape on the drilling place; take precautions (see "Fabrication of the looping spiral").

Thread the axle for the arrows of the clock mechanism through the hole in the bottom of the saucer to the rear and secure the connecting screw. The mechanism must adhere to. Put a saucer with a mechanism to wire the dial facedown. Place a Cup on a saucer so that the Cup handle was opposite the numeral 12. Again put on the Cup wire clamp, but not stepside its ends. Raise up holders, geared to the outer rim of the dial, swipe them under the clamp, covering the Cup, and bend back (see photo).

Hook the ends of the clamp each other in place over the figure b. The excess wire at the ends navate on the end of the spiral to align their length. These ends will be the legs on which to stand a watch.
