This listing is for the construction of a custom watch like the one shown. The watch pictured is one I am currently wearing. The price is for everything: watch parts, dial, custom band, Swiss mechanical movement, etc. There will be some variation in the appearance from the process of torch firing and hand constructing everything. I can also make this dial design with different colors.

The watch will have a Swiss Unitas 6498 manual wind movement, stainless steel case, and sapphire crystal front and back. The case pictured is no longer available. The case used will be slightly different looking 45mm all stainless steel case with sapphire crystal. Send me a message requesting pics of cases currently available. It takes about four days to make everything.

These watches are made with torch fired vitreous enamels fused to fine silver or copper dials. Each watch is unique and handmade. I mill the material for each dial from copper or fine silver, saw the form by hand, turn the sawed form on a lathe for accuracy, anneal each dial form, and then torch-fire various vitreous enamels or glass powders multiple times on the metal to fuse the glass and metal. I work with basic enameling techniques, Limoges, and cloisonne.

The watches are very high quality, made with serviceable standardized parts and dimensions, Swiss ETA Movements, and should last many years. Any of my watches can be upgraded with Swiss ETA Mechanical Movements, custom bands and cases with sapphire crystals. The watchbands can be changed to one of my own handmade watchbands which will be listed soon. If you would like to change a watch I have listed, please contact me for a quote and to discuss it before purchase.

I love tinkering with mechanical watches, old cameras, and vintage electronics. My watches are an attempt to combine and share my interests in art and mechanical things. I hope you like my work and welcome any comments.

Thanks
