Elite Mechanical Memory Key by back2root Elite Mechanical Memory Key by back2root
I present to you my Elite Mechanical Memory Key. After making numerous wooden mechanical memory keys I decided to create a unique one off 'Elite' version.

This beautiful item is an entirely hand crafted out of rare Macassar Walnut & aviation grade aluminium .The key has taken an astonishing 75 hours to complete & is made up of over 240 individual parts - It also houses more than 30 Ruby's! I have used the highest quality 32GB flash memory, housed within the curved wood & metal chassis. It features a green activity LED that shows through the mechanism when in use. I'm really pleased with the result & its without a doubt the most detailed key I've ever... & probably will ever make.

As pictured this key comes in a custom hand made presentation box. Included is a hand formed leather case, pocket watch chain and silver polishing cloth.

All the watch parts have come from damaged or irreparable pocket watches that have been hand disassembled and then combined to create a true, miniature work of art.

This item is now sold!

If you like my work, why not follow me on FaceBook at this [link](link)

Please note as with all my other mechanical memory keys the gears themselves do not move.

Thanks for looking!

I dunno, I love how this looks, no doubt! But I think I prefer the wood ones myself ^^;

I guess the only way anyone can snag one of these is if they commission you beforehand, huh? You seem to sell these before they even get posted up! (or maybe they just sell that quickly?!)

Are you going to make more of these? If so, how much would you ask for one?
