Nº 1929

Blue luxury watches for men by W. T. Author

Launched Wednesday, 2nd September 2015 & built in Britain. Nº 1929 luxury watches for men draw inspiration from the period leading up to the Wall Street Crash: a time in history when Western society was seemingly nearer to the final triumph over poverty than ever before. Evolving upon the firmly established aesthetics of Author’s signature silhouette, the brand embarks upon its third chapter referencing the dawn of the iconic cushion case watch. The brazed lugs take on a more contemporary look with our modified 20mm handmade leather strap.

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 blue luxury watches for men measure 42mm across, 49mm high including the lugs with an overall case depth of 10.5mm. The dial utilises polished numbers taking influence directly from 1920’s era cushion watches with a beautifully etched guilloché centre pattern. The minute track is enhanced with Author’s unique “tuning fork” indices, and traditionally formed custom-made hands complete the dial. The blue cushion watch has been modernised with the beautiful “casino chip” enamel screw down case back, a signature red aluminium crown embossed with the brand’s iconic trademark.

Raw leather watch strap

Exquisite beauty

Each Nº 1929 leather watch strap has been hand-made in Britain using Argentinian-sourced buffalo 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 20mm lug width with an overall thickness of 3 – 4 mm 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 polished full buckle.

    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!

    Bought as Christmas present for my husband. I was so pleased with it that I couldn’t wait to give it to him. Looks stunning and is a truly beautiful timepiece. He loves it!

    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.

  4. Rated 5 out of 5


    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.
