Japan-based metal-smith Yuuki Fujita is known to create metal objects that are inspired by things you see from imaginary worlds or animated films, and she has recently recreated an imaginary industrial watch inspired from a Japanese movie.

Fujita enjoys making things that are unique and otherworldly, as the objects are symbolic of past remnants and memories of childhood dreams. By making these fantastical objects become real, it creates a sense of familiarity between the object and the person wearing it; and in a sense, this creates a bond.

This industrial watch was made from a character’s watch in a fictional Japanese story. Fujita has made the watch especially for people who want to embody the main character from that story, enticing the wearer to embark on the same adventures that the character from the story has been on.
