If you thought personalised timepieces always took long, consider getting one assembled in under three minutes. Bespoke watchmaker, Jaipur Watch Company (JWC), not only specialises in crafting exclusive pieces that fuel desires, but can also bring them to life literally in front of your eyes!
Bespoke is for those who don’t like to pick off the rack and those who enjoy high-degree of personalisation. The process of customising a bespoke luxury watch is indeed an art. Each watch echoes the possessor’s characteristics and connotes its own story through the dial. And its an experience to witness the creative process of assembling a ‘bespoke watch’ in real time.
“With pre-selected components and design elements, one can get a watch customised as quickly as in three minutes,” shares Gaurav Mehta, founder of JWC, based in Pink City, land of the royals. Important to mention that it is the minimum amount of time required for assembling, while adhering to the complexities and finesse of the art of watchmaking.
Sharing about JWC’s latest collection with Vishawatch.com at a recently organised watch making session in the Capital Mehta, however, clarified that not all bespoke watches can be assembled so quickly. Depending on the concept, design and components, it can take from a few hours to even days.
But the wait is worth too for a specially crafted piece. If diamonds are your thing, trust JWC to throw in as many as you like on a gold plated one. If you wish to carry an antique coin on the wrist, JWC master craftsmen will slice it and convert into a thin dial with see a through movement. There is more for the art-lovers.
The atelier artists can create magic with enamel and paints with your pictures. The seekers can get Buddha or Shiva embodied. One can also get watch backs monogrammed with texts and engravings to convey the emotion or message. The possibilities are endless.
“You imagine and JWC can make it happen,” says Mehta with pride, adding that numerous watch connoisseurs approach with monograms, coins and motifs of personal significance that they want to turn into heirlooms.
