Leather Watch Making

Presented by: James Neathery

I am very pleased to announce that Teslacon has given Starboard Sky Industries permission to do a hands on leather watch making panel at this year’s convention! 

The date and time of the class are still TBD. We will have a minimum of 2 hours to complete our watches.

Although the general public will be allowed to sit in, observe, and ask questions (as long as it doesn’t interfere with the pace of the class), only paid spots will be leaving with your very own custom watch that YOU design and assemble yourself!

I will be bringing all necessary supplies, parts, and knowledge to help you build your own watch. All you have to do is reserve your spot with your payment, and bring your sweet self to my class! It is highly recommended that you wear clothes that you wouldn’t mind spilling dye on, because the stuff won’t come out!

There will be a wide array of stains, dyes, and 3D stamps to choose from for the leather portion of your watch, and several different finishes of rivets and hardware.

There are a total of 15 spots available. The cost of the class is $80 per person. Payment can be made on the TeslaCon website.

Payment can be submitted via the following methods:

Please include the following info with your payment: Your first and last name, your desired watch face style (for example: Silver and Brown 3Timer, Silver and Black Bigness, etc.) and your wrist measurement in inches.

If you decide to cancel your class order, you must pay a cancellation fee of 25 dollars, but the rest of your purchase price will be refunded. This is to cover the cost of the materials I will need to supply for your order.

Please note: The compasses and thermometers on the Bigness and Blacksteam are considered “decorative only.” (They do work but are not super accurate.) If you have questions about the functionality of the watches, or to ask general questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!

Caution: For those with metal allergies or sensitivity, the hardware used in the assembly of these items contains nickel.
