The first model under my name, which was released in 2019, was the “Arrow” model. The idea for creating this watch came to me when I was repairing a watch of one of my friends. So completing the watch repair, I put the watch on the table and just looked at it. Then I paid attention to the fact that the lugs of the case are very similar to the halves of the arrowhead and thought, “What if I make a watch which design will be inspired by the arrow?”. I decided to add hands in the form of arrows to the arrow-shaped legs of the case, I decided to make marks in the form of arrowheads. Of course, this watch does not look like an arrow, but when you look at it you can immediately understand that the design was inspired exactly by the arrow, it can be clearly seen in the details and it was the idea from the beginning of this project. So I decided to make a watch which will have traditional elements and be modern at the same time. I decided to make a time-only watch with a classic seconds counter at six o’clock like all the traditional classic three hand watches. I think the watch must be dressy and have its own face and personality, but not to be boring and over conservative. This watch is based on the one of the most reliable movements ever which is ETA 6498. It features a stainless steel 42 mm case which is a 11.2 mm high, sand blasted and gold plated dial which is also available with silver and rhodium plating. Hour marks are made of steel and polished by hand and blued, seconds counter also made of steel with satin finishing. Hands and hour markers for the first watch were made entirely by hand without using CNC machines and then blued. It also features a crocodile leather strap and my own handmade stainless steel buckle. I did a very big job to ensure that the dial is legible and the right combination of metals and colors is achieved. This watch was made with the idea to make not only a dressy watch but also as an elegant looking “jeans watch”.
