Our Expertise

Hout Bay Watch Co specialize in rebirthing vintage pocket watch movements (1800's to 1950's)
into beautiful one-of-a-kind custom wrist watches, with custom handmade straps and display boxes manufactured by local collaboration artists.

Historic mechanical pocket watch movements are sourced, researched, stripped and restored, and placed into a custom case for use as a wrist watch.

Custom leather straps are made to customer specification by our partner company Belt & Band, and are lovingly hand made by Jacques the owner.

Custom Display boxes are made from leather and are engraved to customer specification by Roger from Leather Walls in Hout Bay.
