The Incredible Antique Skull Pocketwatch You Can't Afford to Own


This antique doctor's pocket watch features enamel skulls around the face of the dial. The Roman numerals are formed from skeleton bones. Incredibly, this 18th century pocketwatch still runs.

Check out the amazing pictures in the auction listing of the inside gears.

The pocketwatch comes in its original silver and tortoise shell case.

It doesn't get more steampunk than this!

    And I have a pocket watch already. I wouldn't mind starting a collection of those, either.
