The London stock exchange crash

Third edition

Set fifteen years after our second collection, ‘No. 1929’ draws inspiration from the period leading up to the crash at the London Stock Exchange. Developing the firmly established aesthetics of our signature silhouette, our third chapter of cushion case watches reference the dawn of the iconic cushion case watch head. The brazed lugs take on a more contemporary look with our modified 20mm handmade leather strap.

Natural leather straps

Handmade in Britain

Each ‘No. 1929’ leather watch strap has been handmade in Britain using Argentinian-sourced buffalo hide. The rich colour of the 8 – 9 ounce double shoulders, which is applied during the oil tanning process, goes completely through the leather. The result is a beautiful natural coarse grain strap finished to an incredibly high standard. Over time this will mould itself to your wrist. The strap has been designed and manufactured to fit a 20mm lug width with an overall thickness of 3 – 4mm and is embossed with the W. T. Author ‘A’ trademark. Rounded strap edges and burnished using our own organic wax each strap is completed with a polished full buckle.

We believe our products should be accessed at the same price wherever you are in the world so every piece comes with free global shipping as standard.
