Nº 1905 Black Men’s Classic Watches
Watch Episode 1 of The Vaults here and deep dive into the inspiration behind Nº 1905 men’s classic watches.
Launched Friday 13th September 2013, Nº 1905 men’s classic watches are available to purchase. They draw inspiration from the turn of the 20th century. We start here because this was a time when the first wristwatches for men were introduced by Louis Cartier. It is looking at the traditional aesthetics of pocket watches therefore reflecting pioneering achievements of the era with signature shoulders brazed directly into the bespoke case. This allows a raw cut hand-made leather strap to be fitted.
We build the product using tailor-made components from every corner of the globe (from USA to South America, Asia to Switzerland and of course, UK).
The men’s classic watches measure 46 mm wide, 52 mm high including the lugs with a case depth is 11 mm. The dial utilises numbers taken directly from 1900′s pocket watches and is enhanced with Author’s unique hour markers therefore keeping within the brand’s aesthetic. Traditionally formed custom-made hands complete the dial. The watch has been modernised with a beautiful enamel screw down case back (because we think the back deserves to look as beautiful as the front!) and the signature red aluminium crown embossed with WT Author’s ‘A’ trademark. It is finished with a Swiss made Ronda 513 S Quartz movement.
WT Author makes each natural raw leather watch strap by hand in Britain using Argentinian-sourced buffallo hide. The rich colour of these 9 to 10 ounce double shoulders goes completely through the leather. The result is a glazed leather with exquisite beauty, that will uniquely mould itself to your wrist over time. The strap has been designed and manufactured to fit a a 24mm lug width with an overall thickness of 4 – 5 mm and is embossed with WT Author’s ‘A’ trademark. It is completed with a chrome stainless steel roller buckle.
