New Watch Collection by W. T. Author - Chapter 4 of 13: No. 1934
Set five years after our third collection, No. 1934 celebrates the beginning of widespread access to literature from the period leading up to the paperback publishing revolution. Our signature silhouette takes on a contemporary look by adopting lugs tooled directly into the watch head, finished beautifully with our refined 22mm handmade leather strap. Utilising a combination of highly polished and brushed surfaces the new piece measures 41.5mm across, 47.5mm high including the lugs with an overall case depth of 10.5mm. Applied directly onto a domed dial our bespoke numerals take reference from 1930s era watches, complimented by our unique tuning fork indices. Each finished product utilises a delicate two-tone sunray finish that brings depth and contrast, with our traditionally formed custom-made hands completing the dial. The new watches have been modernised with our new engineered casino chip enamel screw down back, signature red aluminium crown embossed with 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 pieces (No. 1934 automatic blue edition is limited to only 100 pieces, whilst our No. 1934 green edition is limited to just 25 pieces). Each No. 1934 leather watch strap has been handmade in Britain using vegetable tanned dyed through shoulder. The rich colour which is treated with waxes and oils offers a distressed effect which lightens in colour when folded or turned. The natural grain is left intact to show all the growth marks and unique character to give a distinctive antique look with this mellow feeling skin. The strap has been designed and manufactured to fit a 22mm lug width with an overall thickness of 3 4mm and is embossed with the W. T. Author A trademark. Rounded strap edges and burnished using our own organic wax each strap is completed with a polished stainless steel buckle.
