About this project

This project is designed to fund a new machine and get the Schimmel Watch parts pens out into the world while providing the donors with an amazing reward.  They are made with such cool Vintage watch parts everyone will love to look at them.  For those who chose to participate I am confident you will have a treasure to last a life time. You can be assured each will have the care and attention to detail you expect.

The reward for level #3 and #4 is a beautiful one piece pen that features the watch parts body.   It is made of titanium and chrome and will have a vintage watch face.  The retail value you of this reward is $225

Schimmel fine pens is a small business that I hope to grow into a freestanding business that will teach woodworking classes free to both kids and adults.

The level #5 and #6 are beautiful pens. They are larger and feature the cap and body design. This is a highly polished chrome metal pen with the 2 parts of watch parts pens. I make these with Vintage Pocket Watches. They are visually stunning and have hundreds of parts.

Here are some examples of them.

Great care is given to each detail of each pen.  I am confident that if you contribute to this campaign you will not be disappointed.   THANK YOU for viewing.

The video above shows a watch parts pen I did for a friend.   His mother gave him this watch because it belonged to his father.   The watch no longer worked and he wanted to make something he could give back to his mother and have it be a functional memory.   I made the watch in to a watch parts pen and converted the original box into a pen box and gave it back to him.   When he presented the pen she burst into tears with excitement and emotion.  Over a year later she still tells him how much she loves it and how she uses it everyday.

FAQ

  • They entire body is made of watch parts. I start with real carbon fiber and then cover it with real vintage watch parts.
