  • Watch faces

    Anyone know where I can get some watch faces from. I want ones with a link at either end if possible. I've had some geneva ones but i'm not too impressed with the quality- any suggestions?

    Give Beadsage a PM he made watches that were absolutely gorgeous with very unusual clock faces. Don't know if he has time to make them now but he might be able to point you in the right direction to get clock faces.

    Cheers.

            All the watch faces i've seen are Geneva!...They must really have cornered the market!

              Hi, I stock a few beading watch faces on my wesbite lavidalerie.com (Trendz Narmi and Geneva) and I don't know if I have just been lucky but all the ones I have seem to be very nice BUT I must say that the ring/s supplied with them are terrible to the point where I am considering taking the rings off and re-photoing. I have ones with holes at both ends for bracelets, one end for charms and the other end for pendants. I'd love to see some photos of beaded watch jewellery as I haven't been very imaginative myself yet.

                  Don't worry...it's not like the time goes backward or anything but i've got a few knocking around and they've all stopped and the plating is a bit discoloured-nothing irrepairable.

                    I always pop a brand new battery in and then pull the winder out so the watch is effectivly turned off.

                      Oooh - how do you do that?
                      I have about 20 watch faces from about a year ago that have all stopped.
                      I would really love to know how to install a new battery.

                          Hi I have just had a look on julesgems and they do a good selection of the watch faces. They do have the geneva ones but also some Austrian watches which look really nice.

                          http://www.julesgems.com/beads.php?Cat=Watch%20Faces

                          hope this helps if you haven't already found some.

                          I've been meaning to have a go at making a watch and after seeing JBJB's amazing efforts it might have to be next months project as this month i am teaching myself how to make tiaras and have spent a fortune on supplies, oooppss!

                            I bought a watch opener from ebay, a mulipack of batteries from poundland (only a couple of sizes are thr right ones, but at that price you end up with enough batteries to justify it)

                            using the tool, prise open the back (look for the tiny lip) using fine nose pliers,, lift out the plastic edge. pull out the winder and tilt the mechanism upwards. Slide the battery out and check the number before sliding in the new battery. replace the plastic edge then click the back into place.

                              Thanks for the link...i'll be on to them! I'd never do beaded watches now though because I've just had a look at JBJB's and mine would never be as nice!
