Pen 01 - Brass Dowlais 1884 Edition
Loaded with textures of hand craftedness and infused with history from 1884, this might just become your favourite pen. If you think it looks pretty, just wait until you hold it. The body is made from solid brass rod and the cap is made from 1884 railroad track giving it some worthwhile weight. The track was pulled from the side of the hill in my hometown of Lethbridge and was also used to craft our first in-house piece: The Coalbanks - Dowlais 1884 Edition.
We’re huge fans of industrial design and this pen oozes just that. Raw metal throughout and the contrasting lid make it a truly beautiful piece that turns the pen into a piece of art you’ll want to show off whenever possible. Looks aren’t the only thing that will wow you, the writing will feel magical. Many pens have some wiggle room where the nib exits the pen but our perfect fit will avoid any rattle keeping your writing feeling smooth. The nibs on both sides of the pen give it symmetry and allow you to place the cap on the front while not using the pen or on the back when in use.
Because these are done by hand please allow some variances with the final product you receive. I’m a huge fan of the character products possess when made by human hands and am sure you’ll love the character of these when you receive it.

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.
