We hand assemble each watch locally on Martha’s Vineyard and every dial is meticulously hand cut from vintage ties and finished in house to our exacting standards. Due to this every watch dial will have slight variations in pattern and placement. We then pair each watch with matching leather straps to create a visually intriguing and cohesive design. Ungraded shark or ostrich straps are available. Email us for these upgrades. Strap upgrades are $75.
Each watch dial is made from up-cycled vintage ties. Individual ties yield a limited number of dials and production will vary due to vintage tie availability. Some ties will yield a few dozen dials and others will yield only one or two dials of a specific pattern.
This watch dial is cut from a vintage Gucci tie. Please be aware. We are not affiliated with, representing or partnered with any tie manufacturers. We reuse and recycle vintage ties that are no longer worn into beautiful watches to be worn and enjoyed for years to come!
Check out the process in the photos above! Currently watches are made to order and take 3-5 weeks for completion.
