TYPE 99 - CUSTOMIZED FROM RETIRED RAIL
You’re looking at our flagship timepiece that is hand crafted in my hometown of Lethbridge, Alberta from retired rail. I’ve been making some of the most unique, award winning timepieces in the world and am passionate about what I do. You won’t find any lower-priced options with us but you will find inspiration. Each and every timepiece comes with its own unique soul that tells a story through the infusion of century-old rail and creativity. Our unique process transforms watches into meaningful pieces of art that will be passed down for generations. If you appreciate craftsmanship, crave uniqueness and want to own a true one-of-one timepiece that tells your story I’d love to work with you. If you have your own rail you’d like us to use for your custom rail timepiece we can definitely make that happen!

Most watches lack soul…
...so at NOVO we've developed a process of infusing your meaningful memorabilia into a unique timepiece that will tell your story for generations.
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.
One Of One
We 100% guaranteed that no one else will have a watch like yours.
Infused with history you can really feel.
History takes on a new meaning when you can hold it in your hand.
We all have those things that hold meaning that we can’t throw away but don’t have room for. Let us make a watch from it.
PASS IT ON
