THE Nº 1929 WRIST WATCHES FOR MEN COLLECTION

We are proud to present our third collection – the Nº 1929 wrist watches for men.

The Nº 1929 draws inspiration from the period leading up to the Wall Street Crash. This was a time in history when Western society was seemingly nearer to the final triumph over poverty than ever before.

The Nº 1934 is an automatic and hand wound mechanical wristwatch with a quick date setting, stop second device, two-tone polished bezel and exhibition back. Each 316L stainless steel watch head measures 42 mm width x 49 mm length x 10.5 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 polished fluted bezel. The machined crown features a bold, deep red anodised finish, consistent with all of our past collections.

The screw down exhibition back, printed with the WT Author mark and uniquely allocated serial number, gives the wearer uninterrupted access to view the inner workings of the intricate mechanical movement. The bespoke watch head is finished with an unapologetically raw buffalo hide handmade strap in black with a polished gold-tone full buckle.

Every watch is built to order with British and imported parts in our UK workshop located in Shropshire. Each watch 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 1929 BLACK WRIST WATCHES FOR MEN

Featuring a black finish applied to a beautiful guilloché dial that brings a striking contrast against the two-tone polished gold-tone indices. Bespoke, labelled hour markers are carefully placed on the dial with a contrasting minute track.


THE RONDA QUARTZ MOVEMENT

Founded in Waldenburgertal, the company headquarters are now in Lausen. The group has five international subsidiaries.

The caliber Nº 513S is analogue quartz movement, assembled in Switzerland. It is produced in-house by high-speed automatic assembly lines and undergoes strict quality checks.

The component includes repairable metal clockwork with a very powerful stepper motor and fixed pulse.

THE HEAD OF THE WRIST WATCHES FOR MEN

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 42 mm diameter, a length of 49 mm (lug-to-lug), all contained within a depth of 10.5 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 BACK OF THE WRIST WATCHES FOR MEN

The intricately machined screw down 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 CROWN OF THE WRIST WATCHES FOR MEN

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 SAPPHIRE COATED CRYSTAL LENS

The sapphire coating offers significantly more scratch resistance vs. traditional glass, plastic or acrylic crystal as well as being extremely strong.


THE SIGNATURE DIAL OF THE WRIST WATCHES FOR MEN

The watch dial is where we can be the most expressive. The Nº 1929 watch comes in four different colour options: Blue, Black, Cream, Green and White. Each one carries a specific correlation of meticulously designed hour, minute and second indices. The hour markers utilise a correlation of our applied, signature “tuning fork” indices placed securely to the dial to compliment the labelled WT Author mark at the 12 position.

THE EXPRESSIVE HANDS OF THE WRIST WATCHES FOR MEN

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


THE HANDMADE LEATHER STRAPS

Each unapologetically raw leather watch strap has been handmade in Britain using oil tanned dyed through buffalo hide. 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 screen print (limited edition screen print with signature and corresponding number to match the watch’s serial code).
  • Chapter 3 taken from The Book of WT Author (the Nº 1929’s story visualised within a beautifully formatted booklet).

    We can’t praise WT Author enough, the quality of the watches, the compassion and love they put into each order to make it special! We chose a 1929 automatic in black for my son’s 21st Birthday and they were able to deliver the limited edition number 21, to make it an even more special present. Big thank you to Sam and Jon, as well as the rest of the team!
