The Gen 1 Bracelet
Touch Of Grey
All prices include VAT
Rugged and ready, the Gen 1 Bracelet has been through some wear and tear, and is now ready to do it all again, with you. Sharing a watch mechanism crafted from vintage, obsolete Soviet-Union movements, and a parachute cord, each bracelet is tightened with a bead. The central detail of the bracelet, a 1960's Russian mechanism, is embedded with '16 камни' (16 rubies), which originally functioned as bearing points embedded by the watchmaker to reduce friction on moving parts. The watch face also incorporates Geneva Stripes, a polishing denoted by the iridescent lines of finishing running horizontally across the watch. This decorative technique is commonly used for enhancing aesthetics, and to indicate a higher-grade watch.
