Steampunk Fortnight Giveaway: Chrononaut Mercantile Belt

If you saw our Chrononaut Mercantile Pendant last week, you are probably already excited to see another giveaway with their name in the title. And this one is every bit as exciting! Introducing: the Chrononaut Mercantile Steampunk Belt:

Yay! I need a new belt. Lately every time I raise my hands to do "yay" my pants fall down due to wardrobe malfunction.

Woof™.

91. JoeCrow
Hey, that's kinda neat. Particularly as my tastes tend towards "Mongolian clockpunk" rather than traditional "Victorian steampunk".

The number of the comments shall be one. Zero is for naught. Two just will not do. Three, well never you be!

The number of the comments shall be one. No more, no less.

So it is written, so shall it be.

That is splendid enough to make me not only wear a belt in the first place, but to actually tuck my shirt in while wearing it! You have no idea how much desire on my behalf is implied in that statement...
st.richard
99. LouWW
I could use a new belt and buckle...

120. A. Trevor Longino
I gotta admit, something about the lambent russet glow of the antique'd copper calls out to me in a very fundamental way.
nat ward
123. smonkey
ME! even though, as a clockwork rat, I rarely need belts, but still.
Jenny Thrash
125. Sihaya
I'd like one. I would turn the topmost gear 90 degrees clockwise, 15 degrees anticlockwise and 72 degrees clockwise again, just to see if a secret compartment opens up.
st.richard
127. MerryLilith
love! love! love! It would look lovely on my wifey.
