This is the same as the other model: Clockwork iPhone Case except in this version the cogs are detached meaning after placing the 5 included cogs into the 5 holes and then being fitted to the iphone, they will rotate by using the side thumbwheel. The rotation should become easier over time.

Simplicity, is the aim of this case, the back has been ripped off revealing that the iPhone is being powered by nothing more than simple clockwork, a great match for a device which is so simple to use.

Pick Your Color and Personalize with 2 lines of customizable text, up to 14 characters long on each line.

Simply Simple.

Please check out the rest of my Shop including my new iPhone case the TriStand which incorporates built in flip out stands!

Extra cogs of the same or different color available to add extra colour to the case. If you are having trouble using the case, here are the Fitting and Removing Instructions.


IN: 2.423 w x 4.651 d x 0.511 h
CM: 6.154 w x 11.814 d x 1.298 h

@kingshade8 That's odd... The gears are NOT separate, they should have arrived with the case and the case should fit, I know mine does, this sounds like printer and human error, please contact Shapeways directly at and they should help solve these problems (they will probably give you a free reprint).

Two major complaints for this: 1) The gears did not come. I did not find anything in the description saying that they are separate, but if they are, please tell me. 2) THE CASE DID NOT FIT! The top half of the case fit on perfectly, but the bottom half was not covered. It would do nothing to protect it. PLEASE HELP!!
