Circa 1930's Tonneau Watch
I've grown tired of the gaudy, oversized designs that seem to dominate current watch offerings. Flashy, diamond encrusted watches the size of manhole covers may appeal to aspiring
rap stars, but it's decidedly not the image I wish to portray. Fortunately the designers at Circa agree. While ignoring the fleeting trends of today's fashion, Circa is instead dedicated to capturing the classic American design elegance found in vintage timepieces from the 1930's, 40's and 50's — an era when watches were considered wearable works of art with timeless designs! These distinct styles celebrate the golden age of American watchmaking, painstakingly
crafted to preserve the design cues that made the originals true classics. From the custom 23 carat gold plating (color matched to the gold alloy used in the early 20th century), gracefully curved cases, lugs and elegant dials with seconds hand sub-dials, to individually stamped and applied numerals and indices — no detail has been overlooked. Yet unlike the vintage originals, each Circa timepiece offers the convenience of a modern day precision quartz movement, scratch resistant mineral glass crystal, water resistant case, all fitted to a supple, genuine leather embossed strap — elegant and always in style!
