Automatic Movement Holder Colour and Finish Options
When planning to build my large sized automatics, I always had it in the back of my mind that the movement holder for these watches needed to have a variety of colouring and finish options on account of their visibility through the back crystal of the watch. Below are the options for the colouring and finishes currently available, with more to come. Because of the costs of different metals and the differing time it takes to apply certain finishes, the price of these options does vary. You may choose the options according to your preferences when you make your watch purchase.
Personalization options will also be available soon to put text onto the movement holders either by laser engraving or by hand engraving. Photo examples to be posted soon.
There are almost limitless possibilites for customization of these holders such as: hand engraving, hand piercing (cutouts through the holder and dial), and stone setting (diamonds and other precious gemstones). If you are interested in any of these possibilities, please contact me via the web site.
Colours currently available: naked/brass, palladium plating (steel like colour), copper plating, 24k yellow gold plating, oxidized (grey)
Colours coming soon: ruthenium plating (dark grey), rose gold plating (pinkish)
Finishes currently available: brushed, sandblasted/frosted, random brush, radial brush, circular brush, large perlage (larger sized circles), small perlage (smaller sized circles)
Finishes coming soon: Geneva Stripes, random hammered.
Here are photos of the currently available colours and finishes (except for small perlage, coming soon):
