Novo Watch Handmade Collection

Feb 28, 2019

As a watchmaker, it’s difficult to set yourself apart — the horological space is inundated with companies (and offerings) that essentially usurp the others at every turn. To break free of the monotony, Novo Watch has revealed The Handmade Collection, a gathering of unique heritage-focused wristwear that’s built using repurposed metals from notable sources.

From 132-year-old railroad tracks used on Canada’s Pacific Railway to illustrious metals used within one of the 1st Royal Tank Regiment’s prized military support vehicles, the vintage wristwear utilizes materials that have a story to tell. Layers of the heritage Hermann Oak leather and polymer utility parachute deployment bags accompany the watchmaker’s acquired metals in an effort to create a truly unique timepiece. An ETA 6498-1 movement with hand-engraved finish adorns the collection’s flagship watch, the Coalbanks, while a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal protects a hand-painted, machined historical Magnese steel dial. A hand-made 20mm Hermann Oak leather band joins seamlessly with the watch’s 18mm steel buckle, providing a handsome industrial timepiece that’s bursting with character.
