Make what you love.
Like many small businesses, Springs+Gears started out as a personal project. I was learning a new software program and needed something to illustrate. So I decided on a wristwatch movement. Once I was finished, I thought it might look nice printed and framed. As a lover of printmaking, I had aleady collected two letterpress prints by designer Cameron Moll. And I thought that maybe other wristwatch collectors like myself would want these prints too.
Printed at a communal letterpress studio in Brooklyn NY, I am committed to providing the highest quality product I can. Collectors of high-end wristwatches deserve high-end prints. After all, wall space is valuable and finite, and the decision to frame and hang artwork is a highly personal decision. It may sound silly but I personally take that responsibility seriously.
I hope you enjoy my work and look forward to seeing it hanging on your walls.
