    Shouldn’t the cat sections disappear as the hour proceeds, winding up with the grin? From the description, it sounds like they appear.

    The book is 146 years old, so all copyright on it has expired. It’s now considered public domain. That’s why there are so many variations of the theme out by so many different studios, game companies, etc.

    I would buy instantly. I would lose the “Cheshire” logo, though, or replace with an icon. Otherwise it’s over-writing: seeing the word before having a chance to figure out the wonderful premise-riddle of it on your own is diluting.

    I’d say matte black with an option to lose some of the frilly Victorian etching.

    Really great work. Nicely done.

    I’d love it if the inside of watch matched the case. Not big on the logo either. Cheshire doesn’t need to be spelled out, I think we get it. Just use the cat.

    If they made this, I’d buy one.

      Me too.

      But how would you tell what hour it was?

      • Max says:

        Read the description : “the hours are fixed around the outside”.

        Just count the number of ticks and you know the number of hours.

        So the example photo above looks like 12:59.

        The hour marks around the perimeter only light up as each hour is reached. The first sample image in the attached link shows 8:58 and hours 9-12 are unlit.

    I would definitely buy it if it were made. Also, I really like the Cheshire logo. Don’t listen to that Anon dude.

    Do the Tenniel heirs get any royalties?
