When creating your own steampunk costume or outfit, it’s important to include a couple of accessories. Accessories really do complete your outfit and give it that finished look. One accessory you may be interested in, and one that is very popular, is a Steampunk watch or Steampunk pocket watch. Accessories like this are perfect for Steampunk themed convention.
There are many of these held all around the world with one particular event, the Asylum Steampunk Festival, being held in Lincoln, United Kingdom. It is both the largest and longest running Steampunk convention in the world and is held every year attracting many visitors. Events like this are perfect examples of when you should get yourself your own watch or pocket watch to go along with a Steampunk outfit.
The main feature that is different between your average watch and a Steampunk watch is the look of the clock face. Steampunk watches have a skeleton design which means they have an open clock face allowing you to see all the gears, cogs and inner workings that allow the watch to function. So, even if you don’t plan to create a full Steampunk outfit, a Steampunk watch is still a cool and functional accessory to own and wear.
