Artist and miniature-maker Dan Tanenbaum has a fascination with the inner workings of watches. He could obsess over the tiny components in the timepieces for days. He describes himself as an “avid, if not obsessive” watch collector. In addition, he collects the discarded pieces of vintage watches and gives new life to each of the pieces. At first, he started making cufflinks decorated with watch gears arranged to look like tiny motorcycles. (As a lover of watches, he only uses broken and discarded watch components, and never breaks apart functioning watches.)
