Limited edition of 49 worldwide

After collaborating on the design of the “Duo-Face” watch from the Rpaige Watch Co., Richard Paige challenged Duo-Face case designer Mark Carson to come up with an unexpected watch design. The result is the Art Deco “Crash of '29” watch, featuring a restored vintage American pocket watch movement along with newly designed and produced case, dial and hands. The watch was originally launched on “Kickstarter”, and was successfully funded.

Using a “12 Size” vintage American pocket watch movement makes for an impressively sized art deco masterpiece watch. The case is approximately 49.7 mm wide by 57.5 mm tall and 12.7 mm thick. Even at this size, the angled lugs and flat bottom make the watch sit snugly on even average to smaller wrists.

The strap is 22 mm wide at the lugs and tapers to 20 mm at the buckle. The case is 316L Surgical Grade Stainless Steel. The watch features a sapphire crystal and an exhibition back which shows off the movement's decoration and 18,000 BPH operation.

Water resistance is rated at 50 meters (150 feet). The watch is paired with a leather strap and each watch will be sent in a zippered travel case. The warranty is 12 months and covers the watch case, crown, dial, hands and movement.

This is your chance to wear a true piece of American watch heritage as a modern wristwatch from established watch makers. Series strictly limited to 49 pieces.

    I love this watch! The attention to detail is amazing in every respect. It keeps near-perfect time, quite remarkable from a movement dating to 1903. The Art Deco design is fantastic and iconic. It makes me think of the times my grandparents lived in and wonder what that age was like.

    I own 2 other RPaige watches as well as a Mark Carson original. Both of these gentlemen stand behind their work and are a true pleasure to work with. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next!

    Richard Paige produces about 100 watches a year. He sources, strips down, refurbishes and rebuilds some of the most reliable pocket watch movements made by Elgin and the Waltham Watch Company. This is a truly bespoke undertaking. I’ve been covering the watch space for more than 15 years as a watch dealer, writer and magazine editor; and Richard’s produced something unique and affordable for the true watch aficionado. Well done.
