Swiss Watch, Dutch Made
Arnold Vos, owner of Schaftenaar Jewellery and designer of Schaftenaar Watches, started at the age of fifteen at the watchmaker trade school where he learned the tricks of the trade. In the years following he repaired not only small, but also many large clockworks, even a church clock!
Because of his passion for this ancient craft, and as the owner of a shop with its own workshop, he decided to educate the current generation of apprentice-watchmakers. By teaching others, he is able to pass on his own knowledge and passion, as well as the craft of the founder, Mister Schaftenaar, who started the shop at the Market in Harderwijk in 1901.
Despite the high volume of watches he sells in his store, he was missing a high quality Dutch product in his collection.
Therefore, he has invested his nearly 40 years of experience in creating his own quality product: Schaftenaar Watches®. Watches of Dutch produce, made from the best materials: handmade leather watch straps, custom made cases and dials and the latest Swiss mechanical timepieces in classic Dutch design. A unique product and a watchmaker worthy!
If you are interested, do not wait too long, because this is a product which thrills watch lovers and watch makers alike!
The movement as the heart and soul, a look behind the clock face…
The dial determines the face of the watch
You can choose between three watch models: the ‘Journey’, the ‘Traveller’ and the Lady-S, all available in multiple popular, carefully chosen colours: ‘Steamy White’, ‘Night Sky Black’ and ‘Deep Ocean Blue’. The hour- and minute indication are made of chrome. The watch dial is Schaftenaar’s own design: classic with a ‘thirties’ touch, especially the finishing touch of the fine details is of great quality. The watch dial suits casual as well as representative clothing.
Should you decide you wish to have a Schaftenaar Watch before the official introduction, we will create a special first edition, just for you, which will have your initials and your own unique first edition number engraved into the movement. These will be visible on the bottom of your watch. How subtle, how beautiful…
The watch dial will also be marked with a special first edition characteristic, the owners of the Schaftenaar Watch will recognise this!
