We got lucky enough to work with an amazing family on this custom piece. The dial is made from the track of a bulldozer that a Father used to provide for his family and the brand on the dial is the family brand used on their ranch. The collaboration was incredibly fun and a successful Father's Day present that will last for generations to come. Now the history and memories that Allister has created are cherished and preserved in the form of a beautiful timepiece. Here's the little story we wrote on the certificate of authenticity for the family:
In the fall of 1963, Allister found himself on a train headed to northern Alberta for work. Little did he know, this was the beginning of a wonderful life. Seated across from his friends on the same train was a beautiful young lady named Fern. The friends insisted she meet Allister and when they met, as they say, the rest is history. They married in the spring of 1964 and had two daughters. After almost 50 years together they now have 2 grandchildren along with a lifetime full of memories. During these happy years, Allister captained a DC 6 bulldozer, and those very tracks were used to craft the dial of this family heirloom. We know happiness doesn’t come through material things but we hope that these timepieces bring memories of happiness and gratitude for everyone lucky enough to be a part of the family.
