Nº 1929 WHITE CUSHION CASE WATCH
Launched Wednesday, 2nd September 2015 & built in Britain. Nº 1929 cushion case watch by WT Author is set fifteen years after our second collection. It 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. Because of the ever evolving aesthetic to Author’s signature silhouette, we are referencing the cushion case watch. The brazed lugs take on a more contemporary look with our modified 20mm handmade leather strap.
We build the product using tailor-made components from every corner of the globe (from USA to South America, Asia to Switzerland and of course, Britain).
The white cushion case watch measures 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. It is finished with a beautifully etched guilloché centre pattern. The minute track is enhanced with Author’s unique “tuning fork” indices. Traditionally formed custom-made hands complete the dial. The cushion case watch has been modernised with the beautiful “casino chip” enamel screw down case back. It is completed with a signature red aluminium crown embossed with the brand’s iconic trademark. Each collection has been designed and built exclusively by WT Author and therefore strictly limited to 125 pieces.
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 goes completely through the leather. Finished to an incredibly high standard the result is a naturally beautiful strap with a coarse grain. The strap has been designed and manufactured to fit a 20mm lug width with an overall thickness of 3 – 4mm. It is embossed with the WT Author ‘A’ trademark. Rounded strap edges and burnished using our own organic wax each strap is completed with a polished full buckle.
