Black Diamonds and Greek Key
A solid gold case is the basis of this distinctive Officer’s Watch. The familiar and historic Greek key design makes its way around the bezel interrupted only by the individually hand set black diamonds. Gold on gold with a contrast of black, finished with a black American alligator strap, is how this OW made its way onto the lucky owner’s wrist.
Deep Relief and Sculpted Dial
One of the most desired designs of the OW has to be the fine deep relief scroll work case framing the solid gold sculpted oak leaf and acorn monogrammed dial. The fine silver hand fabricated dial markers offer balance and contrast exquisite craftsmanship surrounding the custom monogram. Finished with a brown hand tooled and stitched saddle leather strap.
The Bugling Elk
Iconic to the Rocky Mountain Fall season is the bugling elk. Created by Canadian Engraver Robert Spark, the elk comes to life on the dial of this custom piece. The solid gold lug system, dial markers and corona style crown perfectly contrast the intricate dial engraving and large Western deep relief scroll on the case. The brown, hand tooled strap is an excellent finish.
Western Bright Cut
The brilliance of contemporary Western bright cut engraving brings a distinctive style to the Officer’s Watch. The bright white color of the sterling silver is almost illuminating when paired with the elegant mother of pearl dial and the blue spade and stick style hands. Finished with a hand cut black alligator strap and matching engraved buckle.
Jeff’s Colt Series
The Colt Series was a line of titanium cases that were intricately inlayed with gold wire designs by renown engraver Ernie Lytle. After the cases were inlayed with the gold, Jeffrey took a torch to them to gradually color the metal to a blue hue, much like the blued finish on early firearms. The last Colt produced made its way out of the studio and into Jeff’s personal collection.
High Polish Rose Gold
Sometimes simple elegance is still the best. The thinnest timepiece in our line, this Officer’s Watch was created in solid 18 karat rose gold. The complementing yellow gold crown and lugs mirror the high polish finish, and the white mother of pearl dial is framed beautifully by the bezel. The entire piece was finished with a hand cut and stitched burgundy alligator strap.
Childress Custom “hold my watch”
Handcrafted for one of our favorite clients, Richard Childress, who has his fair share of MWC pieces, we think this one might be his favorite. Commissioned in stainless steel with mother of pearl, the relief engraving on this case is highlighted against the solid gold lugs and crown. Finished with his signature Childress Flair, hand tooled, saddle leather strap. Western at its best!
Gold Overlay Greek Key OG
This custom OW is the original Greek key creation. The bright cut engraved sterling silver case has a solid gold bezel overlay that has been engraved in the Greek key motif set with a scatter of black and white diamonds. The black dial against the gold accents reveals a beautiful one of a kind timepiece finished with a black alligator strap.
Classic Western Standard Relief
A classic look for a custom piece. The white lacquer dial with blue spade and stick hands is the foundation for this iconic Western timepiece. Add hand engraved rolling scroll work to the case and you have a quintessential American West timepiece. Finished with a hand tooled saddle leather strap and it’s - Cowboy Up!
