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, dress watch microbrand without ever having to compromise on quality.

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

The Presentation


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.

“First place and our award for Watch of the year 2021 goes to the WT Author No. 1953. It’s entirely bespoke and British-built, which we believe justifies its asking price. There’s nothing else quite like it on the market, and the fact it comes from a tiny brand adds to the appeal. We hope the new WT Author 1973 model is just as good: hopefully, we’ll get our hands on one in 2021.”

“We’ve reviewed (and written about) a number of watches from WT Author (you can see those here), but with today’s review, we’re leaving behind the trench watch aesthetics of the prior models, and are getting into something a bit more modern – and dressy – with the WT Author 1953.“
