Watanabe workshop handmade watch "GRANDAD-B" jumbo brass hand-stitched belt [NW-JUM116]
[Made-to-order] 3-4 weeks
| Mr. Masaaki Watanabe of Watanabe Koubou is a watchmaker who makes watches one by one by hand at his workshop in downtown Tokyo. We have worked on many watch works that are full of warmth and a tasteful expression unique to handmade.|
Mr. Watanabe does everything by hand, from making watch parts such as cases, dials, and belts to assembling them. There is a wide variety of products, from simple designs that can be used for both casual and business purposes, to unique models that incorporate originality and ingenuity. Watches created through a very time-consuming process give warmth and healing that ready-made products do not have.
For the material of the case, we use materials such as brass and silver that can be enjoyed over time. The leather belt is made of genuine leather that is thick yet fits well, giving it a sense of quality and presence. With the flow of time, you will grow attached to it - it is overflowing with such warmth.
Since each item is made by hand, it takes about 3 weeks to 1 month from the time of order, but you can also choose the color of the belt. It's a very rare and warm handmade wristwatch, so I'm sure it will be appreciated even if it is given as a gift!
|You can feel the warmth and ingenuity unique to handmade...|
The case (watch body) is made of brass
Easy-to-read large dial
|It seems that a compass was a necessity during the Age of Discovery... The design resembles an old compass, with a large dial and lines drawn radially from the center. With a diameter of about 45mm, the brass case has a sense of volume, but it is flat, so you can wear it neatly.
The brass case, which is full of handmade feeling, will deepen the color as you use it, and your own taste will come out. The warm atmosphere of brass and the engraving-like numbers create a classical atmosphere.
The rustic feel of the rustic brass and the strong hand-sewn stitching of the heavy leather belt add individuality to the simple design. . Not only is it a casual style, but it also makes a statement with a simple style.

| The belt is made of high-quality cowhide leather, and the thickness is about 4.5mm, giving it an outstanding presence. It is much more durable than the leather straps of common wristwatches, and it also has a high quality. I think there are very few mass-produced watches in the same price range that use leather belts with such quality and presence.|
Because it is almost made-to-order and hand-made, it takes time from order to delivery, but it is worth it. It is a watch that is full of character and warmth, so it is recommended not only for yourself but also as a gift. I'm sure it will be a memorable gift!
|You can choose the color of the belt!|
|The belt is available in eight colors: black, brown, camel, tanned, white, red, khaki, and navy. Choose your favorite color belt and make it your one and only wristwatch in the world♪|
