Tempus Fugit

Does anybody really know what time it is, does anybody really care? Well of course you do because you have a smartphone to tell you to the exact nanosecond just what time it is. But back in the day, as they say, time passed more slowly and much more elegantly.

These lovely cases, which once housed lovely timepieces, have been given a new life.  They are now home to sparkling gemstones, vintage watch gears, and old buttons.  The back sides are often hand-engraved, giving them yet more beauty and dimension.
