Collection: Legacy Automatic

1 of 4


The Design

The Legacy Automatic is the first time and date only design of our “Legacy” lineup. It includes many firsts for the brand, including our first custom designed caliber and is also 100% US assembled, including the movement! The Legacy Automatic features a newly designed, hand-finished, titanium case with a subtle coin edge bezel, hollowed lugs and an exhibition caseback. It is available in three dial variants for now: “Dark Cobalt”, “Burgundy Tux”, and our first ever Aventurine dial “Stargazer”. Each dial is limited to 50 pieces. The case is 38mm with a 20mm lug width. The Legacy Automatic is also 10.5mm tall, so it easily fits under a shirt cuff while allowing visual depth to the dial. The Legacy Automatic is made to “create memories and celebrate milestones”; which can often get overlooked in the newer, faster paced world of watch collecting.

The Details

The Legacy Automatic continues on with the Legacy’s tradition of thoughtful and functional design elements, including:

– Svelte dimensions to create a timepiece that’s timeless. The Legacy Automatic is sized at 38mm (45mm lug to lug) and maintains a 10.5mm height, all while boasting a stunning dial that is finished with applied markers and a Guilloche center, except for “Stargazer”, which is our first full Aventurine dial.

– Sapphire Crystal with five layers of anti-reflective coating added to ensure legibility, whether you’re telling time or capturing photos – all while being scratch resistant, so that you can use your timepiece worry free.

– The newly designed, hand-finished, Titanium TA2 case has an aesthetic that allows the Legacy Automatic to be worn in formal settings, while being versatile enough to transition to casual settings. The case blends both brushed and polished finishes in the right places – and features hollowed lugs and a subtle coin edge bezel.

– The case lugs are a modern reinterpretation of the legendary “Cornes de Vache” (French for “cow horns”) lug style that renowned watch houses have utilized in the past. Unlike those, the Legacy Automatic’s lugs combine both sharp and rounded edges that maintain our original design language while giving respect to those timepieces that paved the way. To add further distinction, the lugs are hollowed out and visible from the side. It adds a new layer of depth to the timepiece.

– Water resistant to 50 metres (160 feet), the Legacy Automatic is suitable for most activities as long as the crown is pushed down. The leather strap should not get wet as that can cause the leather to dry out.

– The Legacy Automatic features our FIRST custom mechanical caliber, HWC-01. It is visible via exhibition caseback and is a beauty to see. Caliber HWC-01 is 100% US Assembled. The Legacy Automatic is also 100% US Assembled!

The Dials

The Legacy Automatic is available in three different dial themes. Each dial is crafted with
multiple layers for visual depth and combines brushed finishing, a guilloche center plus a date
window at 3 (except for Stargazer). They’re finished with applied hour markers, seconds
track and accents that enhance the overall combination and are a beauty to look at.

Dark Cobalt – Our quintessential blue dial. The Dark Cobalt dial features legendary Breguet
numerals. Named after the influential Abraham-Louis Breguet, Breguet numerals first
appeared before the French Revolution. The silver numerals and accents are applied, and
dance in natural light when paired with the Dark Cobalt dial. Stare at the Guilloche center long enough and you’ll see it moving!

Burgundy Tux – Our first “Tuxedo” dial! It features a deep Burgundy Guilloche center, with Burgundy applied Breguet numerals and a silver colored seconds track that provides a slight contrast against the metal hours track. This dial is also extremely legible and versatile.

Stargazer – Our first Aventurine dial! This is also the “No Date” option with the Legacy
Automatic. It features a beautiful Aventurine dial, with applied Breguet numerals and a silver
colored seconds track that shimmers against the starry backdrop. Aventurine is difficult to
work with as when you produce one dial, several dials get destroyed in the process. It’s
tricky to photograph and no two dials will be the same because of the distinct pattern found in this quartz gemstone. Aventurine is offered on many high end luxury timepieces at a premium. The Legacy Automatic offers the same experience but approachable by all.

The Movement

The Legacy Automatic features our first custom designed Caliber: HWC-1!

HWC-1 is an automatic mechanical caliber that features a date window at 3 o’clock, as well as
hacking seconds. HWC-1 has 26 Jewels, beats at 28,880 VPH and has a 38 hour power reserve.
Caliber HWC-1 is aesthetically pleasing to look at, with its bead blasted, rhodium finish. It’s completed with blued screws and gold accents via its rotor, gear train and surrounding base. Caliber HWC-1 is also 100% US assembled, allowing us to have greater control over quality and performance. With normal wear, a maintenance intervention is recommended every three to five years.
