Just because you don’t want to dress up and go to the Renaissance Fair for Steampunk Days doesn’t mean you can’t appreciate a little brass, leather, and the bustier-ed Victorian era hotties that go along with the genre. Japanese artist Haruo Suekichi decided to blur the lines between form and function and started making steampunk watches. They aren’t exactly practical, but neither are bustiers and we still love those. Crunch Gear sat down with Suekichi in his Tokyo studio to figure out what makes him tick.

Made from beech wood, Switchboard is as stylish as it is functional.
