Nº 1914 BLUE MILITARY WATCH

INTRODUCTION

Launched Friday, 19th September 2014 & built in Britain. Nº 1914 blue military watch is set nine years after WT Author’s debut collection. It draws inspiration from World War One: an era where warfare made digging about in one’s pocket far too time-consuming. And so the trench wristwatch was introduced. We develop the aesthetics of the pocket watch even further into the realms of the modern wristwatch. Therefore the signature brazed lugs on the military watch have been shifted to extend directly from the side of the bespoke head. This allows the more refined Nº 1914 handmade leather strap to be fitted.

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 WATCH

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

THE BAND

Each Nº 1914 leather watch strap has been hand-made in Britain using Argentinian-sourced buffalo hide. The rich brown 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 24mm lug width with an overall thickness of 3 – 4mm and is embossed with the WT Author ‘A’ trademark. Rounded strap edges and burnished using our own organic wax each strap is completed with a black PVD coated brass buckle.

    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!
