Imperial Time


I was at my local watch/jewelry repairman the other day to have a bracelet fixed. While I was waiting, I spotted pieces to a watch face and mechanism on his work bench. I noticed the "pip" for the 12-spot was missing and asked the craftsman if that was a work in progress, or was something destined for his "bitz box". As you can see above, I came home with the watch face and added a few Forge World brass-etched adornments.

I plan to use this as a clock on the exterior of some yet-to-be-built administratum building.
