Alethiometer by RohanElf Alethiometer by RohanElf
I tried to make The Alethiometer out of a pocket watch :P I havent put the glass back over the top yet because it needs one more hand, but I dunno if I'll ever bother with that... so for now, it's finished.

dadaaaa!

So seeing as it's small and only has one place to turn the hands, I'm going to say that this is a long lost prototype of the Alethiometer that we see Lyra use... hence why its a little banged up on the outside... its been buried for years and only recently unearthed :D

Oh and feel free to ignore the paint under my nails... that how you tell I'm am artist... hands constantly covered in paint...

Hggggggnnnnn~ I would love to have a pocket watch like this! Alas, if only... This is really wonderful, specially to a HDM freak like me who's wanted an Alethiometer since grade 5. Though it would be a little difficult to tell time with this... You'd have to memorize all the hour placements LOL
