A wristwatch is an extension of one’s personality—an emotional form of expression as well as a pragmatic one. Bespoke Watch Projects creates limited production mechanical timepieces, made to order for each individual owner in their Oakland, California studio. Inspired by horological tradition, driven by collaboration, and fueled by modern design, the creation process results in a true heirloom-quality item to be passed along for ages.
The 17-jewel mechanical movement has a 42-hour power reserve and is recommended to be fully wound each day to maintain full power. For proper winding, the crown should be turned clockwise until a mild resistance is felt (do not overwind). While the watch assembly includes rubber gaskets and fittings to protect from moisture and dust, it is best to avoid prolonged exposure to water, oil, and corrosives. With proper care this timepiece will be a true heirloom, requiring minimal maintenance for years to come.
Inspired by vintage horology and military timepieces, the design includes modern graphical details and clean styling—with final sizing and proportion tailored to the contemporary wrist. Parts and components are fabricated, produced, and sourced from a variety of sources, including the United States, Switzerland, Germany, and Asia. Product design, final assembly, and custom production of some parts are executed locally, all within a 10-mile radius of the Oakland, California studio. Each made-to-order timepiece is assembled by hand within a 2-3 week time period, followed by one week of final testing and packaging.
Assembled by hand in California, this made-to-order timepiece features an engraved black and silver dial, stainless steel case with a matte PVD black finish, domed sapphire crystal, and calfskin leather strap. The inner workings are powered by a reliable 17-jewel 3620 manual mechanical movement with a decorated rhodium finish and blued screws—fully visible through the glass display back.
This edition is limited to only 50 handmade pieces.
