Amelia Earhart

The Earhart Project was a fundraising campaign that we designed for an international aviation organization involved in the search for Amelia Earhart’s missing Lockheed Electra aircraft. Credible evidence has identified the South Pacific island of Nikumaroro as the spot where Earhart and her navigator crash landed on July 2nd, 1937. This watch contains a dial made of black pearl from Pinctada Margaritifera oysters harvested in the Nikumaroro area.

Mos Espa

Another Star Wars set in danger of being destroyed by the extreme weather of the Tunisian desert is the Mos Espa set near Tozeur. As the following images illustrate, this set is in danger of being swallowed by the shifting sand dunes of the surrounding desert. Working with the folks at Save Mos Espa, we designed a crowdfunding campaign with five different Mos Espa Sand Watches to help fund the sand removal and movie set restoration.

Iwo Jima

With some 19,217 American casualties occurring within just 36 days, the island of Iwo Jima, was the site of the fiercest fighting during World War II. Honoring the fighting spirit of the Marine Corps, we designed a fundraiser based on a special wristwatch that encapsulates genuine Iwo Jima black volcanic sand under the dial. It was this porous sand that presented considerable challenges to the brave Marines that landed at Iwo Jima on Feb 19, 1945.

Apollo 11 Lunar Module

On July 16, 1969, three brave astronauts left our planet on mankind’s first voyage to the moon. This watch celebrates the amazing Apollo Lunar Landing Module that carried Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to the lunar surface. The face of the watch illustrates the 3D surface of the moon where Armstrong and Aldrin landed and is made up of a phosphorescent substrate.

Timeless Memories

Working with Madelyn Corporation, a major manufacturer of cremation jewelry, we designed the world’s first cremation wrist watch. Cremation ashes are held in a special sealed compartment mounted on the rear of the watch so that the wearer can hold a loved one close at all times. Timeless Memories watches are available through Madelyn’s network of dealers.

1953 Corvette

To celebrate the upcoming 70th anniversary of “America’s Sports Car,” we designed a wristwatch for the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY. This watch features design tributes to the first C1 models and contains a small piece of the seat fabric from the last 1953 (#300) corvette built. Corvette enthusiasts literally wear a piece of automotive history when this watch is on their wrist.

New York Yankees

To celebrate to original Yankee Stadium, which stood in the Bronx from 1923 to 2008, we designed a unique wrist watch for Steiner Sports Corporation. It holds genuine Yankee ballfield dirt under the dial in a sealed container. This watch allows Yankee fans to “Wear Yankee Pride” everyday. Talks have been held concerning the manufacturing of ballfield dirt watches for other MLB teams.

Peter Mayhew Foundation

As a result of the popularity of our Lars Restoration watches, we developed a relationship with Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca). A few years ago he asked us to design a wristwatch for his Peter Mayhew Foundation. We were working on a design that encapsulated actual hair from his screen-used costume. Sadly, Peter passed away in 2019.

EarthStones

A few years ago we designed EarthStones, a series of watches for Princess Cruise Lines. These beautiful watches encapsulate crushed gem stones from around the world. The intention was that EarthStone watches would be a private brand sold exclusively on Princess cruise ships through their on-board jewelry stores. The project has been put on hold for now due to Covid and other delaying factors.
