My husband has long admired the WT Author watch collections so he was absolutely delighted to receive a green 1968 Racer automatic for his birthday. He loves his watch. It is stunning with its unique styling and details. The beautifully handcrafted leather strap and the very handsome steel alternative strap also ordered, the sound of the mechanism, the packaging and presentation and the fact that his watch is one of a limited edition built by this British company makes for a very special wristwatch. My husband is over the moon to finally own a WT Author watch but this hasn't stopped him mentioning how much he also likes the grey 1982 Squadron! Many thanks to the extremely helpful Jon with whom I spoke regarding my order and to arrange delivery for providing excellent customer service with a personal touch.

I have just received two watches 1973 and 1940 and I am absolutely delighted with build quality and looks of them , but I would add the whole experience of getting the watches was brilliant , I had a chat with Jon for over 30 minutes where we talked about the watches and described what involved before going with the ones I chose, Sarah was great sorting out the invoices and delivery and there is an superb instructions/how to on their web site telling things like how to change the strap , set the time etc.

So got my 1973 last week, and WOW!!! I love it!. At first glance I thought perhaps the colours on the dial were a little muted, but when I realised just how much it glowed after being under the light, it all made sense. It looks fantastic. The size of a watch is always difficult for me as I always seem to compare to my Nixon 51-30, which is like hanging a wall clock on your arm, but the 73’s size is just about perfect. The dial looks great, especially with the 24hr sub-dial in there, the bezel catches the light differently from every angle and the contrast between matt and polished finishes really catches the eye. Thanks for fitting the Jubilee bracelet, that is something that I think really sets it off. I promised myself that my next ‘proper watch’ purchase would be an automatic, and to be able to get one for the price I did from you guys and it be as exclusive and handmade all adds to the experience. I thought that buying a watch blind would fill me with doubt as I really like to get a hands-on feel for them, but the way you guys set up the Kickstarter experience, combined with the regular email updates and the 'sneak peek' pictures etc. made the whole experience so much better than expected. Thanks for yet another absolute beaut of a watch; I’m proud to add it to my collection.

I'm a avid watch collector. You don't always know what your gonna get when you purchase with kickstarter--which can be part of the fun of it! You guys KILLED this one--the presentation of the packaging, literature and prints are all spot on and fun to look through. The watch itself is really beautiful--great tactile feel, good weight to size ratio. The selection of materials complement each other well. The impression one gets is of a mature, well conceived design. Way to go guys--excited to wear this for years to come!!

Well I am truly happy with my watch,presentation is first class communication couldn't be faulted,I have never been a fan of nato straps and always intended to change them, purchased a stainless steel strap , and wore it on this , just decided to try a spare rubber one I had and in my opinion makes it really " pop " so happy, downsides ? My level of patience needs to improve, thanks everyone, merry Christmas.

It has arrived in Albany, NY!!! The packaging was very well done and the unboxing experience was special. I have withheld photos as to not spoil the experience for others. What I will say is that my 1973 has exceeded all expectations. Thank you, WT Author.

Having met the WT author gents at a couple of shows I decided to pull the trigger on a 1940 blue Pegasus pilots watch. Whilst the website does a good job of portraying the design (and their Instagram page follows up with reassuring pictures of the team working on aspects of its build) once in the hand the watch has more to tell as the design delights in offering something new to the wearer every time you put it on, be it the chapter ring or the concise mimicry of ww2 pilot watch numeral 'fonts' or perhaps even the lume. The case can be enjoyed at different angles with familiar elements of design echoing cockpit instruments that have been completely reworked for a modern take that fit the brand's image. I absolutely believe it to be an icon for the brand, it's extremely legible and feels very robust and is a charm to wear.

Just received my No. 1953 watch, it’s absolutely gorgeous and the workmanship is fabulous, the fact that you can personalise the serial number is a lovely touch. WT Author are lovely to work with, always on hand for any questions/queries they certainly don’t disappoint. All in all one very happy customer!

My husband loves his watch! It looks amazing and feels solidly made. Ordered and delivered on time. However, my only slight concern was that I didn’t receive the shipping information, so I was out when it was delivered.

Excellent presentation, great attention to detail. The watch it’s self looks is great quality yet looks robust for everyday encounters. Detailing is great. The spin bezel sounds quite clunky as it’s rotated which sounds great. For the price I feel it’s great value for money. I will definitely look to purchase another watch in the future.

No 1968 Black Racer looks fantastic; love the contrasting colour combination of "Pepsi" bezel, black dial, sub-dial and hands. Watch with black leather rally strap feels good on the wrist. First WT Author watch for my collection but won't be the last.

These guys are not only talented and know what they are doing, with each piece you buy a unique piece of art. Their concept follows through into the smallest details. A great watch for a small price. 100% trustworthy. Excited to see what they will come up again with their next collection.

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!

Amazing designs, great product quality and most important, excellent costumer service. This brand is much more than just timepieces, its a whole experience. You get to wear art on your wrist and it comes in a beautifully designed wax sealed package that puts you in the mood for getting behind the wheel and burning some rubber. This feeling only get stronger when you open it and hold the watch, which feels and looks so good. I have watches from mainstream brands in this price range that doesn't feel as high quality as this WT Author no.1968 does. Absolutely a great deal if you're into vintage cars and watches.

I stumbled across WT Author at the Bath and West show and i was so impressed with not only the style but also the quality of these pieces, when I looked into their history and read their story i was hooked!!. I now have a 13 year plan of my own and have just ordered the latest edition to go with the other 6 in the collection. Excellent quality watches , I would recommend to anyone. Every watch collection should include a WT Author.

Well, What can I say that hasn’t already been praised in their latest reviews. I first met Jon & Sam at Silverstone Classic a few years ago and was completely drawn to the watches on display. After chatting with the two of them for a while about the vision and the work that had gone into launching their company I was 100% ready to buy. Bought one there and then. Came back a year later. Bought another. And as soon as I saw the No.1973 coming out on Kickstarter I knew I had to have it. I’d been telling myself for ages that the next one needed to be an automatic; and it looked fantastic. The guys are brilliant at explaining the process behind it all, the attention to detail is phenomenal. They genuinely feel like generational pieces that you want to hold onto and then pass down to your kids later on. I love them. Even the packaging is next level. Honestly, if you buy one you won’t be disappointed. And if you don’t. You will be. There’s always a limited amount which makes them so much more special and personal to yourself. Looking forward to seeing what else they can come up with!!

My husband has 3 watches from WT Author, and we have just ordered a 4th. He loves the watches, which all look amazing and often draw complements. We love the fact they are handmade, unusual, and numbered. We have always had great service from Sam and Jon, we make a point of visiting their stand at Silverstone Classic. I love their care and attention to detail not only are the watches gorgeous they always arrive beautifully packaged. We are looking forward to the next watch arriving and would not be surprised if we end up buying more in the future.

I have a real love of watches and like to think I am a bit of a collector. From common Casio's to rarer Breitling's I like to try and keep in the loop with new releases. W.T. Author caught my eye, with the fact that they are assembled in Britain and also seem to be released in a very limited number. (So far) I have two of the W.T. Author watches. The No. 1914 Blue Trench Watch and also the No. 1934 Blue Dress Watch with the Automatic movement. Both are absolutely stunning and more often than not get admiring comments from friends. The care and attention to detail that the guys at W.T. Author take is obvious to see. From the superb packaging that they come in, the hand stitched leather straps, to the hand written number card and service booklet. You can also sense when owning one of these timepieces that you have a real unique item and one that is special to you. I was able to choose two different numbered editions and knowing that they're the only ones in the world like that is very special, especially in the watch industry. I also really like the fact that they only release one design a year, it keeps me wondering what they might have in store for us in the future. If my current watches are anything to go by then I can't wait to see the next one.

Received wisdom in the watch world is that spending £350 on a quartz watch is a bit crazy. On this occasion that would be very very wrong. This is an item far greater than the sum of its parts. The details, fit and finish on the watch definitely justify the price tag. After purchasing the watch at the Bath and West show I have worn it every day for the last 6 months and apart from the strap (which has aged magnificently) you wouldn't be able to tell. The small details such as the ribbing around the case, red crown and the large numerals really make the watch stand out as different before you even start on the trench watch styling. The strap is frankly a work of art. For a start it's buffalo... Not something you see every day. When it arrived it was a very stiff, pale tan and it did wonder how it would age. I will admit to cheating here, I did for the first few days use Chamberlains leather milk on the strap which spead up the process a bit. Since then the strap has deleloped a great lustre and aged so well it's nearly black in some places. After about a week it was perfectly formed to my wrist. It's worth noting that a) the strap is riveted, it's going nowhere without a trip to the Wt Author workshop, b) it's thick (especially at the buckle) , which is great for longevity, less great for fitting under a shirt. It can just about slide under a cuff of a regular fit shirt but will more often than not catch. The movement hasn't missed a beat since it arrived, the sapphire coated mineral lens has withstood a few heavy knocks with door handles etc and the movement on the standout red crown is smooth and precise. All that before you even start on the exclusivity of the piece. In short, a watch and company so good I almost immediately pre ordered their new model the 1968... And I doubt that will be the last!

Came across WTAuthor at Duxford this September whilst perusing the many exhibitor stalls. At a glance I thought it was just another peddler of watches as I walked past. What made me stop was that I didn’t recognise the Brand and when I saw the prices I was I intrigued as opposed to put off. There was no hard sell and Sam introduced himself and the story and concept behind the watches. The more I listened the more I felt that was looking at a product that represented or reflected on my personality. It was unique, a limited edition offering, built to order with a fascinating storyboard of period designs and a British company. I loved the presentation, the styling, the build quality and I felt Sam was offering a genuine product backed by a design team that believed in their product. Sam seemed genuinely interested in spending time answering all my questions knowing there probably wouldn’t be sale there and then which reassured me further. It was like to talking to a friend than a sales person. The result was a decision to purchase a 1940 automatic movement online a few weeks later. I keep in touch with Sam via WT Arthur’s FB Page and love the personal touch. The watch was delivered beautifully presented with a hand written note which made me feel very valued as a customer which at this time further reinforces the values and customer service of this company. Thank you for a great watch and great service to date.

I bought my husband one of your watches for his 50th birthday. I was lucky to get for Christmas the Emmeline with both the metal and also the leather strap. It is beautiful - just perfect and I love the versatility of the different straps.

In total we have purchased three watches which are all unique and of excellent quality. I recently received the ladies watch as a present and am thrilled with it. The service provided during sales and after sale has been excellent. Most definitely recommend this company and their watches.

Bought one of their first edition watches “No 1905” in 2013 and have been following the brand ever since grow and develop! They are amazing at what they do and provide excellent service!

I got the 1940 green face model as a birthday gift from my wife, it's an absolutely stunning watch. Ive been wearing it for a few weeks now and it has really settled on the wrist well, the strap is so comfortable.I love the packaging that the watch came in with all the extra items in the box, WTAuthor really do go that extra mile. Can't wait to own another.

A great watch for wearing at formal occasions, an elegant design and looks very different from a mass market watch. I love the blue face, it's subtle but still manages to stand out. It's my watch of choice for going out and about to dressed up events.

One of my favourite watches, it looks so different from anything else and is the watch that is most commented on whenever I wear it. It's a great vintage wardrobe addition as well for any vintage period event, e.g. the Goodwood Revival.

I have followed W. T. Author watches from the first crowd funding days, I have never been disappointed in the watches produced. I wanted a watch that was different to the run of the mill, didn't break the bank and was eminently usable. I have a model of every edition and didn't realise I was a watch collector until I bought the first 1905. Support British made goods, buy a quality limited edition watch from W. T. Author today!

Like the other reviewers, I couldn't stop at one W. T. Author watch, my first being the 1934 blue automatic, quickly followed by the 1914 in black and more recently the 1929 in white. The concept of designing watches around historical moments and of course the tie in of getting a new book chapter with each watch really appeals to me. I guess we are tied in to 13 watches and I hope they are all as individual and classy as the existing ones. I live in US and the guys at W. T. Author have been brilliant in ensuring my watches reach me quickly and in great condition. My favorite and most commented on is my black 1914. Love that watch!!

I purchased the Nº 1934 green dress watch as a gift to myself as I've never really owned a time piece that had much more purpose than simply telling the time. W. T. Author's watches are more than just a timepiece, they have a history and a story to tell with each model. After months of looking through the range on the W.T. Author website, I finally decided to go with the Nº 1934 as soon as it was released in September 2016 and purchased #08 of 25 which gave it even more personal value to me. The full service from Jon and Sam has been exceptional from first contacting the guys, through purchasing to after care service. The watch arrives in a beautifully presented box and you get a real sense for how much pride they have taken in designing, building and sending the watch. I'm sure I'll be buying a few more products from W. T. Author in the very near future!

The Blue 1929 watch, is one of the most beautiful and subtle watches I have had the privilege to own. When I first opened it, I thought the guilloche pattern on the dial was too subtle. However after looking at it in much better light, it is definitely noticeable. I had to put the watch strap on the very last notch, as my wrist is so skinny. Plus the photos make it look like the dial pops just a little more than it does, but that's more of a nit pick and good photography on WT Author's part. Overall, it is a fantastic watch.

The 1929 edition is great for leisure, business or formal wear. An individual watch which immediately feels comfortable like a favourite pair of jeans on a Sunday morning, yet stylish like a sharp suit on Saturday night.

After two amazing pieces of art, WT Author made me wonder if the third would be in the same style with just a twist. But they came up with something extraordinary totally different and very tasteful. The inner carvings are lovely and somewhat change with the light during the day, I noticed mine weren't deep enough, but a very fast fix by Jon and Sam (and the mail man) made it possible I had my watch re done and back within a week. Great job guys and let's wait i great anticipation what you will have for us next year!

Every watch WT Author creates is a timeless piece of art, the quality is very very high, it can take hits and water and still look great for every occasion. The leather strap wears down beautifully making it look light a real adventurers timepiece. Whenever I wear the 1905 or 1914 people get attracted to it an especially the red crown draws a lot of attention. The watch is just magnificent and so is the idea behind it, every year I will be waiting in eager anticipation what they come up with next!

I have just received two watches 1973 and 1940 and I am absolutely delighted with build quality and looks of them , but I would add the whole experience of getting the watches was brilliant , I had a chat with Jon for over 30 minutes where we talked about the watches and described what involved before going with the ones I chose, Sarah was great sorting out the invoices and delivery and there is an superb instructions/how to on their web site telling things like how to change the strap , set the time etc.

I have a real love of watches and like to think I am a bit of a collector. From common Casio's to rarer Breitling's I like to try and keep in the loop with new releases.

W.T. Author caught my eye, with the fact that they are assembled in Britain and also seem to be released in a very limited number.

(So far) I have two of the W.T. Author watches. The No. 1914 Blue Trench Watch and also the No. 1934 Blue Dress Watch with the Automatic movement. Both are absolutely stunning and more often than not get admiring comments from passers by.

The care and attention to detail that the guys at W.T. Author take is obvious to see. From the superb packaging that they come in, the hand stitched leather straps, to the hand written number card and service booklet.

You can also sense when owning one of these timepieces that you have a real unique item and one that is special to you. I was able to choose two different numbered editions and knowing that they're the only ones in the world like that is very special, especially in the watch industry.

I also really like the fact that they only release one design a year, it keeps me wondering what they might have in store for us in the future. If my current watches are anything to go by then I can't wait to see the next one.

I am the very proud owner of all the blue models and supporter of the brand since the first day. There is something about W.T. Author that you will never find in any brand alike, they tell a story and unfold the history of watchmaking and the world. That, and the fact that they will only create 13 limited models, makes it quite a special timepiece to wear.

The make is very high quality, all models feel very solid and sturdy. The straps are made of very strong leather and give the pieces an adventurous and original look. The battery life is very long, actually my 1905 is still running on the same power as it did when it first arrived, where the 1914 needed to have it's battery changed only once.

Every year Sam and Jon come up with a new great concept, connected to a specific year in history only one per decade, telling a unique story.
The anticipation that starts every year at the end of summer and ends around half november - december for me is hard to describe, I am always eager to find out what they come up with next and every time they exceed my expectations.

Came across WTAuthor at Duxford this September whilst perusing the many exhibitor stalls. At a glance I thought it was just another peddler of watches as I walked past. What made me stop was that I didn’t recognise the Brand and when I saw the prices I was I intrigued as opposed to put off.There was no hard sell and Sam introduced himself and the story and concept behind the watches. The more I listened the more I felt that was looking at a product that represented or reflected on my personality.It was unique, a limited edition offering, built to order with a fascinating storyboard of period designs and a British company. I loved the presentation, the styling, the build quality and I felt Sam was offering a genuine product backed by a design team that believed in their product.Sam seemed genuinely interested in spending time answering all my questions knowing there probably wouldn’t be sale there and then which reassured me further. It was like to talking to a friend than a sales person.The result was a decision to purchase a 1940 automatic movement online a few weeks later. I keep in touch with Sam via WT Arthur’s FB Page and love the personal touch.The watch was delivered beautifully presented with a hand written note which made me feel very valued as a customer which at this time further reinforces the values and customer service of this company.Thank you for a great watch and great service to date.

I consider myself a bit of a watch-a-holic. Not collecting the - so to say - top-end makes, but searching for breathtaking timepieces at a reasonable price. For me W.T Author clearly stands out. Jon and Sam tell and amazing story by releasing only thirteen models in thirteen years covering the history of the wristwatch, one out of each decade starting with 1905.Every model has its own remarkable look and feel, but still they all stay within the brand WT Author. The signature on the 12, the red crown, the missing numbers on the dial.The make is very high quality, all models feel very solid and sturdy. The straps are made of very strong leather and give the pieces an adventurous and original look. The battery life is very long, actually my 1905 is still running on the same power as it did when it first arrived, where the 1914 needed to have it's battery changed only once.And they are clearly full of surprises, creating the first automatic with 1929 black and adding a very limited (and sold out) 25 pieces green version with the 1934. Can't wait what they come up with in the 1940 model.This brand is much more than just a wristwatch making company! They are true storytellers with a sharp eye on high quality of details and a tremendous vision on how a beautiful time piece has to be made.Owning every model, I can say I love to wear them all and no matter which one is on my wrist, I always get compliments about it. Giving me the wonderful opportunity to re-tell the story of W.T. Author.

My Dad is in love with his new 1905 tan watch, bought for his recent 60th birthday. Not only did he love the style but he was impressed that the straps are hand made, with a good amount of British quality craftsmanship that you'd hope for from any top end watch company. Service was second to none and watch despatched within a day of ordering, what more could I ask for, thank you to the guys at W.T.Author, I am one happy customer and so is my Pops!
