The story of the 'Blackbeard' wristwatch.
The pirate captain Blackbeard ruled the Atlantic ocean and Carribean Sea during the 18th century and gained a reputation for being merciless and cunning. Together with his crew, they took over many merchant ships through clever tactics and ruthless battles. We believe that if he ever wore a watch, this would be it.
Blackbeard is a watch for men who want a dark and strong accessory that looks as if it has seen a lot from the mysterious world that lies beyond.
The details of the watch.
This watch is one of our larger vintage watches and they are handmade by one of our expert vintage watch designers, Paul. The stainless steel casing is roughly 48 mm in diameter with a 42 mm face diameter and a 5 mm bezel width. The rim has a tachymeter you can use to to measure travel speed whether you are out in the open or at sea sailing to your new adventure.
The glass was made from scratch proof crystal mineral glass. This analog watch has a dial that has a centralized skeleton display. It also has two sub-dials, in numerals and roman numerals, there to serve as a visual enhancer. The clock has sleek dauphine hands which strike a strong contrast with the black and steel clock.
The details of the leather cuff.
The leather cuff made from aged veg-tanned leather was dyed with eco-paint giving it that final, smokey look. Were positive Blackbeard would have appreciated it, because it would have reminded him of the strong planks his ship was made of. The leather cuff, 64 mm in width, was handstitched and embodies craftsmanship. There are several nails attached to it and it has leather stampings to enhance it's appeal. It has a single push button deployment clasp.
Aesthetics of the watch
This vintage watch is truly remarkable. The incredibly detailed cuff made from veg-tanned leather has a smokey look that works well with the stainless steel casing and darker dial. It's almost as if the watch is a compass on an old ship made from strong, aged planks.
Veg-tanned leather is quite special because it can take up to 60 days for it to be suitable for usage. Even then, it requires tremendous skill to make anything worthwhile out of it because it's sturdier than most types of leather. We are positive that this cuff with this watch will really add edge to your image and will be the perfect dark accessory for your wardrobe.

You will absolutely love the feeling of the watch around your wrist. The high quality leather and watch simply feel masculine and amazing. It's a rugged accessory, perhaps it even has a somewhat dark and mysterious aura surrounding it. It will be a watch you will wear for years to come. This dark leather watch will be a great addition to any man's wardrobe looking to add some edge to their style.
