custom library - model 1925
Ropes and Rubies
The sterling tonneau case takes on a full Western look when dressed to the 9’s with multicolor gold overlays and large gemstones. This beauty has hand crafted overlays of rose, yellow and green gold on the bezel culminating in the clients Brand. The gold rope is hand twisted and the rubies are set in bezel cups as well as in the winding crown. A wide flair strap design and matching buckle make this perfect cattleman’s timepiece.
Bright Cut and Sapphires
The case and handcrafted bracelet fully covered with bright cut engraving, this attractive, ladies piece was set with over 50 white diamonds and 13 blue sapphire markers including one in the winding crown. The bright cutting burnishes as it relieves the metal leaving the brilliant sparkle behind. Once the diamonds and sapphires were added, it was exactly what she wanted.
Wildlife Artist John Banovich’s leopard is the centerpiece of this incredible project with dial engraving by Christian Decamillis. Over 140 hand set diamonds are scattered throughout the bright cut engraving on the solid rose gold case. The bulino engraved dial is framed by a hand turned yellow gold rope. All case work was completed by Diane Scalese. The unique piece was finished with a chocolate brown alligator strap.
Western Engraved Titanium
Truly one of a kind, this fully engraved titanium timepiece was handcrafted for a truly one-of-a-kind individual. Each link was individually cut and painstakingly assembled and then hand engraved by Jake Newell. The deep and intricate engraving covers the entire piece including the case back and it is one of the lightest full metal timepieces we ever built.
Babe the Labrador
Created to memorialize a loved pet, Babe was a labor of love from beginning to end. The deep relief scroll on the case and bulino engraved dial was all completed by Christian Decamillis. The open case back not only displays the mechanical movement but also the precious pup’s moniker. This very personal piece was finished with a black pampa strap.
The Western Monogram
The iconic styling of the Western monogram is always meant to reflect the character of the owner. This simple clean dial shines with a combination inlay and engraving of the clients initials surrounded by gold and sapphire markers. Contrasted by the dizzying small deep relief, single point scroll work and finished with a hand tooled saddle leather strap.
The Vail Deer
Periodically a client wants to create a dial to commemorate a particularly impressive hunt. The Vail deer is one of those. The client provided imagery of the trophy and our artist partners brought it to life on the dial of the watch. The single point case engraving compliments, but in no way competes with the special subject framed out by 12 gold dial markers.
Classic Western Deep Relief
The Model 1925 in its most authentic Western look. The deep relief scrollwork is patinated to achieve that antique grey look of sterling silver. The scroll design makes it way out onto the bezel where it frames the classic white dial with sub-dial seconds, keeping the look classic western and early century. Finished with a hand tooled black saddle leather strap.
The Night Wolf
A masterpiece product of our collaboration with the engravers of Bottega Giovanelli in Italy. Master Engraver Dario Cortini created a night scene that depicts the wolf in the moonlight of a forest. The forest of trees makes its way off the dial, wrapping around the titanium case. This stunning piece was finished with a hand cut and stitched black saddle leather strap.
