Watch Part Motorcycles Don’t Ride or Tell Time, But Still Look Cool
April 19th, 2011
The thing that always gets my attention the most when I write about a new watch is all the little gears and components inside that work together to make the watch work and tell time accurately. I guess Dmitriy Khristenko (aka dkart71) feels the same way. While I like the way the parts work together inside the watch, he likes to rip the watch apart and use those little gears and parts for designing other things.
This guy takes all sorts of parts from various watches and uses them to make mini motorcycle statues. The little statues are amazingly complex and every part is made from something on the inside or on the outside of a watch. If you look at the image, you can see that he does fine work.
I see prolific use of watchbands for tires, a watch face for a gas can, a pocket watch back for a rear wheel and lots more details. I really like the engine being made from the insides of the watch, and the watch face crystal that doubles as a windscreen.
