Nº 1905

Blue classic watch by W. T. Author

Launched on Friday 13th September 2013 & built in Britain, Nº 1905 blue classic men’s watch draws inspiration from the turn of the 20th Century: a time when the first wristwatches for men were introduced by Louis Cartier and Edmond Jaegar. Taking inspiration from traditional aesthetics of the pocket watch, it reflects pioneering achievements of the era with signature shoulders brazed directly into the bespoke case allowing a raw cut 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 classic men’s watch in blue measures 46mm across, 52mm high including the lugs with a case depth is 11mm. The dial utilises numbers taken directly from 1900′s pocket watches and is enhanced with Author’s unique hour markers. Traditionally formed custom-made hands complete the dial. The white classic watch has been modernised with a beautiful enamel screw down case back, the signature red aluminium crown embossed with W. T. Author’s ‘A’ trademark and a Swiss made Ronda 513S Quartz calibre movement.

Raw leather watch strap

Exquisite beauty

Each natural raw leather watch strap has been handmade in Britain using Argentinian-sourced buffallo hide. The rich colour of these 9 to 10 ounce double shoulders, which is applied during the tanning process, goes completely through the leather. The result is a glazed leather with exquisite beauty, that will uniquely mould itself to your wrist over time. The strap has been designed and manufactured to fit a 24mm lug width with an overall thickness of 4 – 5 mm and is embossed with W. T. Author’s ‘A’ trademark. It is completed with a chrome stainless steel roller buckle.

    My wife gave me the 1905 watch in blue for my birthday and I love it. Very individual and a real statement piece. Now looking to buy the latest 1914 British Military in cream. Another birthday present so could not be happier.
