Hello Devilīs Friends,
Please let me introduce myself: My name is Clemens and Iīm the guy behind H2O and this absolutely crazy Damascus Steel watch. Since many years Iīm a collector of not only watches, but also knifes. I mostly read in the biggest knife forum in Europe: the German www.Messerforum.net
I have produced only six damascus stee blocks from this steel and just 4 made it to a final product. Every customer has chosen his preferred combination of bezel, display case back and main case to make the watch even more individual for the buying person.
My Damascus steel watch case is for example very different looking as I was coocking the watch case in approx. 90° Celsius hot acid. Fortunately I didnīt make it longer, because otherwise maybe the 4th wouldnīt have become a watch.
This is the knife I have made for my damascus steel watch. Itīs made from the same damascus steel like the watch case itself and handmade by German knifemaker. The bolster (is that the right word for the damascus plates surrounding the wood?) and handle could be changed to different types of wood and also the bolster to timascus or Mokume Gane.
Of course the knife shown is not final as the wood handle must be exactly fitted between the metal plates and also the screws are to big in diameter.
To make this story short:
We are introducing a new watch series H2O ORCA with 5 different watch cases and Iīm planning ON REQUEST to manufacture a VERY SMALL LOT made from HANDMADE STAINLESS DAMASCUS STEEL!!! The design for the watch could be chosen from the 5 different designs of the ORCA series.
Just to make sure: Of course we are NOT using industrial made Damasteel!!!
We are using really handforged stainless damascus steel and this is to my knowledge the first time this will be done.
Here are the ORIGINAL stainless damascus steel blocks used to produce the watches:
Some watches are already sold to my current customers, but you can contact me under firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
