17 Ways To Reuse Watches

A friend of mine is making some driftwood hangings interspersed with jewelry and watches. She has asked that we donate any old pieces that we are now using. To my surprise, I found 10 old watches that I have had for years? How did that happen and why did I hang on to them? Watches can be recycled and or reusing into some very interesting works of art and or jewelry.
