Descartes was created with a vintage watch face that has been cut into a cutaway structure with a jeweler's saw and complemented with various gears and winding stems. All parts are recycled from old and unloved watches, cleaned, and soldered into place using lead-free silver bearing solder, rather than glues or resins found in many craft items. Each piece at A Mechanical Mind is hand designed and assembled by artist Justin Gershenson-Gates, and each piece is one of a kind, and never to be reproduced exactly.
The pendant is 26mm wide by 26mm tall and comes on an 18" antiqued silver cable chain with links measuring 1.9mm. A ring clasp secures the necklace. A longer or shorter chain may be made by request for no additional fee (up to 22").

All items ship within 24 hours of receiving payment via USPS first class or priority mail. USPS first class mail is trackable within the US but does not include insurance. USPS priority mail method is preferable, being trackable and quick, most domestic orders arriving in 2-3 business days. While this method is more expensive than first class mail, it is a safer, quicker, and insured method of shipping. We even subsidize the cost of shipping so you do not pay the full amount. We are happy to utilize other methods you may prefer within reason.
International orders may be subject to customs inspections and import duties, for which you are responsible. As a general warning, customs inspections may cause damage to fragile parts. International orders generally take 6-10 business days to arrive, depending upon customs inspections.
