Are you tired of modern highly expensive watches and looking for something special? We are glad to invite you to check this unique wristwatch!
This timepiece has a vintage mechanical movement, which was originally a pocket watch. Individuals commonly scrap pocket watch cases for their precious metal, leaving the original mechanism orphaned. Thus, we restored the movement and created a new "home" for it and it is now ready to proudly tick on your wrist!
This key wind & key set wristwatch is created on the base of the high-grade Swiss DAVID J. MAGNIN very well-preservedwatch movement that was found uncased, but with an original dial.
(Please note, the dial has tiny hairlines at 8 and 10 o'clock.)
The movement was disassembled, cleaned, then serviced and re-cased.
A high-quality CASE with transparent back covers is new and was specially crafted by our team of watchmakers & jewelers.
The singularity and charm of this timepiece is that you have to use a special key to set the time and wind the watch. The key is included.
The watch is fully functional and is ready to proudly tick on your wrist. The accuracy may vary +/- 5 mins a day, which is considered a norm for a caliber of this age.
We create artisan watches.
Our concept is to restore what can be restored in the watch (case and/or dial). And to produce, what is missing to make the timepiece wearable again. We upcycle quality movements that are not used anymore.
We do not copy, we come up with our own designs.
We appreciate what is handmade, special, and unique.
