W.T. Author launch ‘No 1929’
Luxury Watch Brand for Men, W.T. Author launched their third collection ‘No. 1929’ and their first Automatic watch on the 2nd September 2015. W.T. Author’s new collection ’No 1929’ features British luxury cushion watches for men in the brands’ signature four colour ways, starting at £350.
Set 15 years after Author’s second collection, ’No.1929′ draws inspiration from the period leading up to the Wall Street Crash: a time in history when Western society was seemingly nearer to the final triumph over poverty than ever before. Evolving upon the firmly established aesthetics of Author’s signature silhouette, the brand embarks upon its third chapter referencing the dawn of the iconic cushion watch case.
There are those times that come along where we have to make an effort for a special occasion
The brazed lugs take on a more contemporary look with our modified 20mm handmade leather strap. The dial utilises polished numbers taking influence directly from 1920’s era cushion watches with a beautifully etched guilloché centre pattern. The minute track is enhanced with Author’s unique “tuning fork” indices, and traditionally formed custom-made hands complete the dial. The watch has been modernised with the beautiful “casino chip” enamel screw down case back, a signature red aluminium crown embossed with the brand’s iconic trademark. Each style has been designed and hand-finished exclusively by W.T. Author in Britain and is strictly limited to 125 limited edition pieces.
The 2nd of September also marked the release of the brand’s first ever Automatic watch, The No.1929 Black Edition, which will be produced in stainless steel 42mm and will be limited to only 100 pieces. Founded in September 2013 by co-founders Jon Shakespeare and Sam Holland, W. T. Author offers limited edition luxury watches for men created in Britain. Housing Swiss made movements to guarantee quality and precision, each time piece is finished with a hand made leather strap utilising Argentinian-sourced buffalo hide. W.T.Author aim to release 13 collections (one a year) over the next 13 years, with the new collection always launching in September. The collection will be available from www.wtauthor.com
