Seriously amazing skills! I follow a guy on Instagram that does engraving. He's done a full Rolex as well. Case, bezel, and bracelet. His mother is a jewelry maker in Northern Michigan, so he came by the gifts honestly!

I couldn't handle the stress of putting a chisel to an antique watch case. Amazing work.

WFs:
Remember back n tha days when a person retired, their employer(s) presented
a watchpiece with sentiments ENGRAVED on case back?
When is the last time companies or corporations did that to someone you know
or were acquainted with?
IMO engraving on a watch is icing on the cake!!! It could be from your offspring
on the occasion of your wedding or other momentus event. I think the ability, like
the ability to service mechanical watches, is a lost art.

Just replaced the strap on someone's retirement watch the other day. I've only seen two in recent memory. I think in the modern age if you work at the same job 5 years you have to quit and go on Kickstarter with your brilliant plan

It's hard to imagine most of those watches becoming any nicer
than they already were in stock form, but holy cow !!!

Thought they were all works of art to begin with, but now they
are on a different level. It's remarkable, and looks like you can
either slightly change up a watch, or totally transform watches
into these unique masterpieces !

You really have to appreciate the ability that these people
have. Actually kind of takes your breath away, and leaves
you speechless Desk. Love it ! ..Thanks so so much !!!

The day's of companysdoing things like that for thier employees is sadly long gone in most part. Some really great skills there though. Makes me think of custom guns that people have engraved like that. Real works of art.

Wife and I had date of wedding engraved in our yellow gold wedding bands
55 years ago. Still wear my band. Arthritis has wife's ring finger swollen that
she can't put her band on any longer. Being old SUX!!!
Corps used to be more generous with employees retiring. Now its a swift
boot in the butt with no goodbyes.
Shame everthing is so different than the 50's. When I got promoted to RR
Engr it was Mr Snutt this or that!!! Now it's "Hey Stupid, get this train outta
the RR yard"..

Arthritis is truly terrible my wife has a similar problem, she can't get her wedding band off thankfully the band is not tight on her finger above the knuckle.

Although I'm 81 y o and 11 mos older than the wifee, my arthritic problems
pale in comparison to hers. Sure would be nice to have a cure for her achy, and
twisted digits.
Forwarded your engraving post to a fellow Texas watch chap. Who owns PAMs.
He had said he might consider engraving on one of them.
He's deep pocketed as well.

Imagine Rolling Stone ranking Brian May 26th in the world in guitarists.
No Jimmie Paige but above 26th ranking.
Nothing to do with watches or horology. It just makes me upset.

Have to agree that the skill level to do engraving work like that is more than admirable.
Could not wear something like that though.
