Gift Guide pick #16 - Husband/Boyfriend

If I didn't already buy him a watch last year I would get this in a heartbeat.  He tells me he collects watches so I just might purchase it anyway.  The Steampunk Jewelry Antique Century Pocket Watch is an absolutely handsome accessory piece for men.  Wikipedia defines Steampunk as
"a sub-genre of fantasy and speculative fiction that came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century, and often Victorian era England—but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or real technological developments like the computer occurring at an earlier date"
Whatever that means. All I know is I like it. I'm sure the proprietor of St Johua's can give you a better explanation if your interested in steampunk jewelry.  This is a one of a kind piece (OOAK); grab it before I do!
