You might ask why would there be two of the same custom watch? The answer is simple, the owners of these beautiful timepieces are brothers. Every three years they buy matching watches, this time around they chose RGM to make them something very special and unique.
The watches are modified RGM Model 222's with custom glass enamel dials. They also requested we incorporate a secret signature of two small seagulls which can just be seen in the large photograph. The hands are blued steel Breguet style. The Model 222 case is 316L stainless steel and has a diameter of 41mm.
They chose the Hamilton 921 movement which we restore; hand polish the steel screws, regulator parts, and the solid gold cap jewel setting for the escape wheel. Then as a option we hand blued the screws using heat.
The enamel dials are made just like enamel dials were made over a 100 years ago. This time we used a blue glass for the numbers and track which is fired into the white surface. The soft look of the blue is very nice on these watches, they are the first we have done with blue. You can read more about how enamel dials are made under the 801-COE or PS-801-BB here on our website under those models.
