Custom Handmade Timepiece
Since 2011 we’ve been crafting some of the world’s most unique and historic timepieces. Since this watch is handmade from your memorabilia we can 100% guarantee your watch will be 1 of 1. If you have any questions about our work please reach out!
There’s nothing more meaningful in a watch than when the story it’s centred around is yours. I’ve crafted watches for people who live all over the world and the one thing in common is that when the dial of the watch is rooted in your story it becomes a cherished product that will inspire today and for future generations down the line. We’ve worked with everything from NFL helmets to bulldozer tracks so it’s highly likely we can work with whatever material you have!

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to build a custom watch?
Depending on the complexity between 8 - 10 weeks.
How are you better than other companies?
We’re not! We’re different. Our focus isn’t on mass producing anything. Our focus is transferring a customer’s story to his/her wrist or pocket.
What movement do you use for your watches?
We use a Swiss ETA 6498-1 for our watches.
What can I expect when I receive my watch?
An absolutely stunning timepiece that tells a story you connect to. And tears. And love.
What do you mean “most watches lack soul”?
Mass-produced products lose the individuality and personality that hand-crafted watches exude. While mass-produced pieces are great for marking important moments in life, our hand-crafted watches infuse the actual memorabilia representing your moments and bring with them character that’s impossible to replicate.
What kind of material do you work with?
We work with anything! We’ve worked with NFL helmets, MLB cleats, train tracks, military tanks, branding irons, iPhones, and more. Every watch is different so feel free to call or email to chat more about your specific material and see what we can do with it. Email steve@novowatch or call 888-782-2607.
