A wristwatch estimated to be worth one million pounds is going on display in the Midlands.

What makes the watch so unique is the tiny micro-sculpture built into its design.

The sculpture itself is so small, it can only be seen under a microscope.

A special set of lenses have been added to the watch to make it visible.

Local Birmingham artist Willard Wigan was commissioned to create the sculpture.

The watch will go on display at Staffordshire University this weekend for the first time, alongside more of Willard's micro-sculptures- some so small they fit onto a pin head.
