Launch

Launching Friday, 13 September 2019  Nº 1968 by WT Author is currently available for general sale through our store from £300.

Inspiration

It marks the 1968 season of World Championship motor racing. Our signature silhouette adopts a rotating bezel referencing racing watches from the time. Each watch is finished beautifully with a refined  22mm handmade leather rally strap. Or choose a silver-tone, solid stainless steel jubilee bracelet instead.

Utilising a combination of matt and highly-polished surfaces. The motorsport watches measure 44mm across, 49mm high including the lugs with an overall case depth of 12.5 mm. The dial utilises colour and details taking influence directly from 1960’s motor racing and is enhanced with Author’s unique shape. Each finished product utilises a bespoke dial design that brings a subtle knurled textures, combined with traditionally formed custom-made hands. The motorsport watches have been modernised with a bespoke “casino chip” enamel screw down back, signature red aluminium crown embossed with our brand’s iconic trademark and Swiss made Ronda quartz movement.

Each Nº 1968 silver-tone solid jubilee bracelet is constructed with a five-piece, semi-circular link design designed to be more refined than a standard three-piece bracelet. It represents a flagship alternative to our raw leather straps.

Each Nº 1968 leather rally watch strap has been handmade in Britain using vegetable tanned dyed through shoulder. The rich colour which is treated with waxes and oils offers a distressed effect which lightens in colour when folded or turned. The natural grain is left intact to show all the growth marks and unique character therefore giving a distinctive antique look with this mellow feeling skin. The strap has been designed and manufactured to fit a 22mm lug width with an overall thickness of 3mm and is embossed with the WT Author ‘A’ trademark. Each strap is completed with a polished stainless steel buckle and finished with rounded, burnished strap edges.
