Nº 1914

Black army watches by W. T. Author

Launched Friday, 19th September 2014 & built in Britain, Nº 1914 black army watches by W. T. Author is set nine years after W. T. Author’s debut collection. It draws inspiration from World War One: an era where intensified warfare made digging about in one’s pocket for a watch far too time-consuming, and so the trench wristwatch was introduced. Developing the aesthetics of the pocket watch even further into the realms of the modern wristwatch, the signature brazed lugs have been shifted to extend directly from the side of the bespoke head allowing the more refined Nº 1914 hand-made leather strap to be fitted.

We assemble our products using tailor-made components from every corner of the globe (from USA to South America, the Far East to Switzerland and of course, Great Britain).

Author’s unique hour markers

Custom-made hands

The black army watches measures 46mm across, 52.5mm high including the lugs with an overall case depth of 10mm. The dial utilises black numbers taking influence directly from 1914 trench watches and is enhanced with Author’s unique hour markers. Traditionally formed custom-made hands with tonal colour infill complete the dial. The white trench watch has been modernised with the beautiful “casino chip” enamel screw down case back, a signature red aluminium crown embossed with Author’s trademark and a Swiss made 513S calibre movement.

Raw leather watch strap

Exquisite beauty

Each Nº 1914 leather watch strap has been hand-made in Britain using Argentinian-sourced buffallo hide. The rich tan colour of these 8 – 9 ounce double shoulders, which is applied during the oil tanning process, goes completely through the leather. Finished to an incredibly high standard the result is a naturally beautiful strap with a coarse grain that will uniquely mould itself to your wrist over time. The strap has been designed and manufactured to fit a 24 mm lug width with an overall thickness of 3 – 4mm and is embossed with the W. T. Author ‘A’ trademark. Rounded strap edges and burnished using our own organic wax each strap is completed with a black PVD coated brass buckle.

    I am not a watch type of person, I am a car guy, but, my wife bought me a 1905, I bought a 1914, and I’m now ordering the new 1929 W.T. Author watch. My friends, who are watch guys are always impressed and are spreading the word, so get them while you can.
