The Mido Necklace is made from a 17 jewel, recycled watch movement from the Mido watch company in Biel, Switzerland. Check out the detail on the watch movement... This watch movement is a self winding piece. The
Mido, a name known and respected by watch connoisseurs around the world. Mido's history dates back to November 11, 1918, the day George G. Schaeren found the company in Biel, Switzerland. Mido (Latin for "measuring") has always been the forefront of innovation and timeless designs.

You've given a classic, even iconic, piece of machinery a new look. Nice work.

I'm really into "industrial" jewelry and these are stunning! Watchmaking was a really intricate art and the detail was incredible- then hidden by very simple cases. You've exposed the glorious guts here...

I love anything steampunk and try to apply the idea to some of my own creations, but in a feminine way. Beautiful work Tim xx
