The story goes - this is the second and even more technologically advanced timepiece from the indubitable Dr von Rosenstein. Its hinged lid's brass turbine blades (themselves incorporating solar sensors), rotate to generate the transformed power- (the turbo may also be hand-cranked), and conceal the patent Galvanic Scale dial-face. With back-up-battery-powered quartz movement.
Pewter Empire, 35mm dia. pocket watch with magnet-catch hinged lid, rotating brass blades, instrument dial watch face and a crystal quartz movement. Please note, this watch is not solar or steam powered, the above description is the story behind the piece.
A cleverly-designed pocket piece for steampunk enthusiasts.
