Craftsmanship

The photographs below give you an insight into some of the detailed work undertaken at the workshop.

Case Finishing

Case finishing is something we take very seriously, going to the extent to create our own polishing machines to achieve the best results. Our cases feature challenging contrasting satin and polished edges, each watch case takes many hours to polish with a variety of processes. Notably our watches are given a horizontal satin grain between the lugs, which is only possible by hand.

Handmade Hands

We are very proud to join the ranks of a very small amount of watchmakers who make their own hand finished hands. Each hand takes us approximately 20 hours to finish, by first shaping the hand with a file and then polishing with pegwood and diamond paste. Each hand is made of two components, a steel black polished boss (in the middle) and the tempered flank, existing in either blue or purple.

Enamel Dialmaking

Enamel dial making is an exceptionally difficult art, even the most accomplished artisans have a failure rate of 75% with enamel dials. Our dials are crafted by our esteemed partners at Donzé Cadrans, in Le Locle, Switzerland - the same town we studied watchmaking in.
