Horology Timepieces

watch-21Automotive designers Andy Shaw and Robert Silkstone have designed a set of timepieces that are every bit of unique as the person wearing it. It is said that there are three things you can judge a man by; his shoes, his belt and his watch. By the looks of these Industrial North Design Horology timepieces, I’d say it would be hard to find a pair of shoes and a belt to keep up with your wrist. The debut models, the Britannic and the Vanguard-Precision, reflect the designer’s automotive background. The designers used extreme manufacturing techniques such as spark erosion and wire-EDM machining coupled with laser engraving to produce these gorgeous watches. The debut models are going to be available in a limited production with only 15 units per model being made at $8,000 a piece. Industrial North Design is currently taking pre-orders and hopes to start shipping out the timepieces in about eight weeks. Visit their site, www.industrialnorth.co.uk, to place your order.
