New Watches Chapter 3 of 13: No. 1929 by W. T. Author
Set fifteen years after our second collection, No. 1929 draws inspiration from the period leading up to the crash at the London Stock Exchange. Developing the firmly established aesthetics of our signature silhouette, our third chapter of new watches reference the dawn of the iconic cushion watch head. The brazed lugs take on a more contemporary look with our modified 20mm handmade leather strap. The new watches 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 1920s era watches with a beautifully etched guilloch centre pattern. The minute track is enhanced with our unique tuning fork indices, and traditionally formed custom-made hands that complete the dial. The new watches have been modernised with the beautiful casino chip enamel screw down back, signature red aluminium crown embossed our brands iconic trademark and a Swiss Made Ronda 513S Quartz or Citizen 9015 Automatic movement. Each collection has been designed and built in Britain exclusively by W. T. Author and is strictly limited to 125 limited edition pieces No. 1929 automatic black edition is limited to only 100 pieces. Each No. 1929 leather watch strap has been handmade in Britain using Argentinian-sourced buffalo hide. The rich colour of the 8 9 ounce double shoulders, which is applied during the oil tanning process, goes completely through the leather. The result is a beautiful natural coarse grain strap finished to an incredibly high standard. Over time this will mould itself to your wrist. The strap has been designed and manufactured to fit a 20mm lug width with an overall thickness of 3 4mm and is embossed with the W. T. Author A trademark.
