The 1018 is the latest model available
The 1018 started off as personal build and evolved into a watch for sale to the public.
This vintage inspired watch comes with options when ordered that allow the piece to be a unique and personal experience.
The standard model has a ETA 2824-2, the movement is hand regulated over a period of time to bring your watch to well within COSC specifications.
As an alternative you may choose a 1960’s New Old Stock vintage movement – probably an ASchild Automatic subject to a availability. This slows the automatic beat of the watch to the 1960’s beat speed, it’s hardly discernible – however when you know about it you see it and fall in love with the feel.
Standard is black, but a vintage inspired grey is an optional choice.
The Dial and hands
The dial has no options, it’s black gloss with gilt print and hand applied vintage lume.
In this image the dial on the left has the Gloss finish
The standard issue for the 1018 is a set of cathedral style hands, silver, with hand applied vintage lume – this is done at the same time as the dial is prepared to ensure the correct colour consistency.
You may wish to have another hand choice like a Mercedes hour or complete set. Your choice.
Strap / Bracelet
The following images show previous strap options over a range of ‘1016’ and ‘1018’ Watches for demonstration purposes.
The standard 1018 comes with an Italian hand made leather strap, colour of your choice from availability.
Very recently after a lot of failed purchases and trials I can now offer a bracelet option (£25 extra). The bracelet is hand finished to match the watch.
The ‘1018’ is currently available for £550 plus shipping from the UK (£25)
Build time is around 3 weeks from receipt of a 50% deposit. Balance to be paid before shipping.
