Movements

Pioneering Watch Calibres

Each cushion case watch is assembled around a highly-reliable movement to give you the ability to maintain the watch with us directly or with another service.

The Ronda Nº 513S calibre is an analogue quartz movement, assembled in Switzerland.

It is produced in-house by high-speed automatic assembly lines and undergoes strict quality checks to ensure long-lasting design.

The component includes repairable metal clockwork with a very powerful stepper motor and fixed pulse.

Materials

Type 316L Stainless Steel

With its extra-low carbon content and added Molybdenum, type 316L stainless steel is incredibly strong and extremely resistant to corrosion from seawater or acidic liquids.

It’s also magnetic resistant, unlike the general-use stainless steel grade of 201 or 304L.

We select 316L as the choice of material to provide an affordable, cushion case watch without ever having to compromise on quality.

Every watch is built with British and imported parts and assembled in our workshop.

The Presentation

Packaging

Recyclable, Renewable, Reusable, Biodegradable & Sustainable

The innovative cardboard packaging has been engineered as a lightweight solution to reduce wasteful distribution.

With a recycling rate of over 80%, corrugated cardboard has the best UK recyclability record of any packaging material, saving an area the size of Greater London from landfill every 4 months.

We endeavour to use recycled stock at every possible opportunity.

Our well-designed ‘right sized’ solution provides maximum protection with minimal use of material to eliminate waste, as well as reducing storage & transportation costs.

The inherent beauty of this repurposed material is adorned by our own exclusive artwork.

“Often, when I talk about new brands that we have been building a relationship with, I talk about looking forward to what will be coming next – or, for those that have been around awhile, seeing how their lineup has changed over time. With WT Author, that concept of change and evolution is actually baked into their principles a bit more than most.”
