It all started 2 years ago, when I got my hands on the new, back then, huge technic gears. It wasn’t long before I realised that they would make a perfect bezel on a huge lego watch!
My favorite watch design was always the iconic Rolex Chosmograph Daytona so I was definetely going for that!
Couple of months after I created it, November of 2017, TLG asked AFOLs through the LAN for ready to go, large mocs that can depict exact time (13:58) for displaying them in a secret event at the time in The Lego House. Instantly I applied and it got accepted with other 7 mocs around the world.
Finally on 28/01/2018 the event took place and it was for the 60 years anniversary from the exact time that the 2×4 lego brick got patented!
After this significant event I decided to take it a step further and create a proper watch box to embrace it! I’m a woodworker so I was going for something special. The leather interior was not something I had tried before but I’m pleased with the result!
