Wristwatches with Swiss-made Pocket-Watch Movements

Charming Vintage Designs
Tourby Watches Marine with Arabic Numerals

(k-press) The design of Tourby’s Klassik wristwatches is derived from vintage pocket watches. This is also true for the movement inside – a genuine Swiss-made pocket-watch movement, properly refined according to highest watchmaking standards. Refinement options are available for any customer’s budget but Tourby also offers decent handiwork at decent prices. It all starts with Genevan strips, blued screw, and polished crowns. Further options include a screw balance, a swan neck, sunburst decoration, perlage, hand engravings, skeletonized parts, etc. In some cases, the refinement of the pocket-watch movement is so elaborate that the origin can not be recognized anymore, turning an ugly duckling into a beautiful swan. The Klassik range includes the Enamel, Guilloché, Marine, and Marine Silver models. All of them are 42 mm in diameter and feature two sapphire glasses. As usual with Tourby, the customer can freely select from an extensive number of design options.

“We build your watch”

Tourby Watches is a small company based in Hagen (Westphalia, Germany) that specializes in making exclusive mechanical chronometer watches. Rather than holding products in stock, Tourby produce their wristwatches only at their customers’ specific requests. Thus, each watch is a unique item made to the customer’s taste and special demands. Customization is based on a large range of design and component options: Several watchcase designs and finishes, bezels, crowns, an extensive selection of dials and hands as well as various straps and clasps in any combination are available to choose from. This allows for creating classical wristwatches, pilot watches, or skeleton watches – each single one a unique item. Of course, special requests will be fulfilled, too. For example, the customer can have his or her name printed or engraved onto the watch for a surcharge. The Tourby Watches collection is actually meant to be a set of templates as all models can be redesigned to the detail. Tourby agents will discuss all specifics with the customer to build a unique custom watch.

Tourby: Much more than a hot tip

People from all over the world wear Tourby watches – and love them. Connoisseurs in the U.S. have been enthusiastic about them for quite a while, and many collectors enjoy their custom chronometers.

Chinese admirers debate at length Tourby products in online wristwatch and collector forums.
