With the release of our most recent collaboration with Etch by design Melbourne we thought it would be a great opportunity to get up close and personal with the wrist watch kit and what makes them so damn awesome.
So what actually comes in the box?
Everything you need is in the box apart from a pair of everyday scissors used for trimming.
Our leather watch bands are 20mm wide and designed in 3 parts;
The face and buckle
Included is the classic 42mm matte black and white face complete with quality japanese movement. All you need to do to swing it into action is remove the plastic clip holding the crown out from the watch and peel back the protective plastic from the front glass and stainless steel back. The face is completmented with a beautiful matte black buckle to suit the 20mm wide leather band.
All the small things
Every kit contains 2 colours of thread one matching the other is a burst of personality and colour. Good equipment is important we include a high quality John James saddlers needle to help you master the 1 needle method of saddle stitch, we also include a link to the below video tutorial for your one on one at home workshop. Seeing is totally believing!
WHY WHY WHY? This is a question we get all the time.
Why should I make my own? Because you will learn something new and it is going to feel soooooo damn good when your done. Take a break and instead of having a kitkat for the hips put a few stitches on your wrist!
Is it wrong to give a gift that needs work put in? No way! giving a DIY kit as a gift is 2 fold. It shows that some serious thought has gone into who you love and what they like, you are telling them you believe in them and what they are capable of.
What if I stuff it up? You can not beat leathergoods that are handsitched no matter what skill level the maker is at. We make it easy with top notch threads, needles and leather along with our video instructions will have any novice stitching like a pro.
