Description

THE Nº 1953 DRESS WATCHES FOR MEN COLLECTION

We are proud to present our sixth collection – the Nº 1953 dress watches for men.

It marks the coronation of Elizabeth II on 2 June 1953 at Westminster Abbey, London. Our signature silhouette adopts an elegant mesh watch band referencing dress watches for men from the time, and introduces the renowned style into our growing collection of timepieces that includes examples of military, aviation and diving stories to name a few!

The Nº 1953 is a quartz wristwatch with a stop second device, two-tone polished bezel and serial numbered back. Each 316L stainless steel watch head measures 37.5 mm diameter × 43 mm length (lug-to-lug) × 12.5 mm depth (including lugs) and is tested to 10 ATM (100m / 325ft) water resistance.

Utlising a beautiful combination of meticulously polished and carefully brushed surfaces, it has been elevated further with the use of a delicately brushed two-tone fixed bezel. The machined crown features a bold, deep red anodised finish, consistent with all of our past collections.

The screw down back is etched with the WT Author mark and uniquely allocated serial number. The bespoke watch head is finished with the option of a refined Italian leather handmade strap in deep brown or a solid, delicate stainless steel Milanese bracelet.

Every watch is built to order with British and imported parts in our UK workshop located in Shropshire. It is guaranteed against any defects in material or workmanship that may occur under normal use for a period of 24 months from the date of purchase. Learn more.

THE Nº 1953 DRESS WATCHES FOR MEN

Featuring a soft cream finish applied to a beautifully knurled dial that brings a subtle contrast against the faceted polished silver-tone indices. Unique, angled hour markers are applied gently to the dial with a contrasting minute track.

THE STAINLESS STEEL DRESS WATCHES FOR MEN HEAD

It has been designed to fit perfectly on the wrist within a robust and solid watch head that has been assembled to be put through its paces. The result is a timepiece with a 37.5 mm diameter, a length of 43 mm (lug-to-lug), all contained within a depth of 12.5 mm (including lugs).

We effortlessly combine beautifully brushed and highly polished surfaces that meet to create a clean aesthetic with incredibly strong properties. The highly polished watch bezel brings a dynamic style whilst offering a fantastically machined aesthetic.

THE DRESS WATCHES FOR MEN BEZEL

The two-tone aesthetic presented through the contrasting finish is enhanced further by a delicately brushed surface.


THE SCREW DOWN DRESS WATCHES FOR MEN BACK

The intricately machined screw down serial numbered back includes deep, tooled recesses with enamel infill to reflect our established signature “poker chip” aesthetic influenced from our previous watch collections. The component creates a powerful seal that ensures water resistance tested to 100m / 10 ATM.

The stable construction with precisely defined architecture has been designed and machined to be as beautiful as every other component on the watch. The back is finished with our intricately printed mark and serial code to indicate its allotted number in the limited edition collection.

THE DRESS WATCHES FOR MEN CROWN

The crown is placed at the 3 o’clock position with lugs that fall tightly underneath the top component of the watch head, avoiding any discomfort to your wrist.


THE SOLID SAPPHIRE CRYSTAL LENS

The solid sapphire crystal lens is constructed in extremely high temperatures and made up of crystalline aluminium oxide. Each item is precisely cut with diamond saws that are then ground & polished into shape for the finished product.

It offers significantly more scratch resistance vs. traditional glass, plastic or acrylic crystal as well as being extremely strong and shatter resistant. The solid sapphire crystal lens has an identical hardness to natural sapphire.

THE SIGNATURE DRESS WATCHES FOR MEN DIAL

The watch dial is where we can be the most expressive. The Nº 1953 watch comes in nine different colour options: Blue, Black, Cream, Green, Grey, White, Red, Blush and Silver-tone. Each one carries a specific correlation of meticulously designed hour, minute and second indices. The hour markers utilise a correlation of our faceted, signature “tuning fork” indices applied securely to the dial to compliment the matt labelled WT Author mark at the 12 position.

THE EXPRESSIVE DRESS WATCHES FOR MEN HANDS

The highly distinctive minute, hour and second hands utilise  silver-tone finishes. The bold forms have been designed to be easily read and visible against the dial.


THE HANDMADE LEATHER STRAPS & MILANESE BRACELET

The Nº 1953 Milanese bracelet is constructed from fine-knit stainless steel, harking back to 1950’s mesh jewellery. It is stamped from sheet metal and stitched together. This makes it a far more economical process than that of traditional bracelets. It represents a dressier alternative to our leather straps.

With a 20 mm lug width, our premium Milanese straps are both highly functional and lightweight, capable of handling everyday life.

Choose a handmade leather strap as an optional band add-on to all purchases for £45 each instead of the usual £65. Each leather watch strap has been handmade in Britain using vegetable tanned dyed through Italian cowhide. The rich colour, 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, giving a distinctive look with this mellow feeling skin. The strap has been designed and manufactured to fit a 20 mm lug width with an overall thickness of 3 mm and is embossed with the WT Author ‘A’ trademark. Each strap is completed with a brushed stainless steel buckle and finished with rounded, burnished strap edges.

THE SUSTAINABLE PACKAGING

Our packaging has been engineered to be 100% reusable and recyclable, as well as providing a lightweight solution to reduce wasteful distribution. We endeavour to use recycled stock at every possible opportunity. The inherent beauty of this repurposed material is adorned by our own exclusive artwork.

Every watch comes accompanied by the following items:

  • Signed and numbered map print (limited edition map detailing the route of the Queen’s Coronation with signature and corresponding number to match the watch’s serial code).
  • Chapter 6 taken from The Book of WT Author (the Nº 1953’s story visualised within a beautifully formatted booklet).
