The dial utilises applied faceted indices and is enhanced with Author’s unique shape.

The watch strap made by hand in the UK

The Nº 1953 Milanese bracelet is constructed from fine-knit stainless steel therefore 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 raw leather straps

The Nº 1953 leather watch strap has been handmade in Britain using vegetable tanned dyed through shoulder. The rich colour which is 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 therefore giving a distinctive antique look with this mellow feeling skin. The strap has been designed and manufactured to fit a 20mm lug width with an overall thickness of 3mm and is embossed with the WT Author ‘A’ trademark. The strap is completed with a polished stainless steel buckle and finished with rounded, burnished strap edges.
