Steampunk Watches




As I was reviewing some of the videos posted at Wegame.com, I noticed Miss Connolly playing a very nice sonata on her piano in New Babbage. Unfortunatly, I was unable to transfer the file to the Heliograph, but the timepiece she wore on her arm remined me of a Japanese watchmaker that specializes in "unusual watches" - meaning Steampunk wrist watches.






Mr. Haruo Seukichi provides a very intersting story about how he started his specality and more details on his amazing works. Good news = his watches are for sale! Bad new = his website in only in Japanese. Nonetheless, below are the links for his works, including an extensive gallery of his works...
