Watch Parts Spider No 128
created June 3, 2021

Spider No 128 was made with recycled watch parts and a repurposed automotive bulb.


In order to create the legs, 24 watch winding stems must be cut in different sizes to simulate the organic appearance of real spiders’ legs, which vary in size and shape between species. Each of these segments is carefully arranged into a leg and soldered at the joints with lead free, silver bearing solder.  These legs are then attached to the body of the spider. 

 

To make the body of the spider, several watch strap springs were soldered together. To this assembly is attached an automotive light bulb.

 

The sculpture measures 40mm wide by 33mm front to back by 27mm tall.  All creations made by A Mechanical Mind are one of a kind, never to be reproduced exactly.  All parts are soldered with a lead free silver bearing solder, no glues or resins are used in this piece.  Sculptures are not toys and should be handled sparingly, as their parts are tiny and delicate. This sculpture comes with a glass dome for display.
