Chronulator chronulates your day



This DIY item uses two standard dials and some odd telegraph keys to create something that looks like it belongs on the bridge of the Enterprise, circa 1801. The clock uses parts from ShareBrained and a tea box attached to some custom-engraved metal plates – actually curtain rod ends.

My Chronulator was made of a tea box, some pieces of brass curtain rod ends ( not sure of the translation ) then a piece of amarante wood, patiently cutted and varnished.

For the meters, I made the design on Illustrator, then a friend of me made the engraving on a numeric milling machine. ( Thanks, Pierre ! )

The ShareBrained kit seems to be quite easy to remanufacture to your exacting specifications so a hand-made kit isn’t that hard to build.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
