Description

If you're looking for an authentic looking addition to your collection of Steampunk inspired clothing and accessories, look no further than the Alchemy Gothic Death Of Byron Pocket Watch

Made from nickel-free pewter, this stunning fob watch is heavily inspired by the life and adventures of the 18th Century romantic poet, Lord Byron. Once described as "Mad, bad, and dangerous to know" by his married lover, this quote is inscribed on the inside of the pocket watch, alongside a wreath of acanthus leaves, representative of enduring life and immortality. The front of the pocket watch features items that are traditionally associated with Byron, such as a quill that signifies his role as a poet, the word 'ADIEU' on a banner from one of his most famous poems, a bottle of the laudanum Byron was so fond of and lastly, a monk cowled skull, much like the one Byron used to drink wine from, "...in imitation of the Goths of old...". 

The Alchemy Gothic Death Of Byron Pocket Watch is an ideal treat for yourself and makes for a perfect gift for any Steampunk devotee, lover of Gothic glamour or fan of unusual accessories.  Pair with your favourite Steampunk inspired outfit for a touch of traditional, yet fantastical Victorian style.
