  • "We've found a wonderful new watchmaker... and they go by the name of W.T Author watches and, as you can patently see from the watch above, they’re all sorts of awesome."
  • While W. T. Author joins a sea of many with their new line of timepieces, we’ll say they do what they do better than most of the competition.

Product Overview

The first series of limited edition watches by W. T. Author.

Every component has been designed and hand-finished exclusively by W. T. Author in Britain, and fitted with a Swiss made movement.

The ‘No. 1905′ first edition watch draws inspiration from the turn of the 20th Century: a time when the first wristwatches for men were introduced by Louis Cartier and Edmond Jaegar. Taking inspiration from traditional aesthetics of the pocket watch, it reflects pioneering achievements of the era with signature shoulders brazed directly into the bespoke case allowing a hand-finished leather strap to be fitted. The case measures 46 mm across and 52 mm high including the shoulders. The case depth is 11 mm. The dial utilises numbers taken directly from 1900′s pocket watches and is enhanced with Author’s unique hour markers. Traditionally formed custom-made hands complete the dial.

The watch has been modernised with a beautiful enamel screw down case back, the signature red aluminium crown embossed with the Author trademark and a Swiss made 513S calibre movement.

Every watch comes with an A5 book detailing the story of master watchmaker W. T. Author individually signed by the team and a limited editon A5 silk screen print available in 5 colours, again individually numbered and signed. The set is beautifully presented in a custom-designed package.
