To complement the Pirates writing instruments, Montegrappa released the Pirates Wristwatch. Embellished with precious metal overlays that reproduce the motifs of buccaneer culture in intricate detail, this watch is release just ahead of the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales film which is probably not coincidental. The 43mm case made with the jewellery lost-wax casting technique is finished in burnished Sterling Silver, or Sterling Silver with Vermeil (yellow gold plated) accents.
It captures the eye, revealing its secrets slowly, for every surface is festooned with piratical elements. At the top, the grinning skull known as the Jolly Roger holds a dagger in his teeth. A small skull sits at each corner., in between are heavy marine ropes, swords, chains, mermaids, sails and other images and items associated with pirates, while the crown bears the pattern of the ship’s wheel. Inside the massive case is one of the world’s most dependable automatic movements, the renowned ETA 2824 automatic calibre. The case is secured by four screws and features a screw-down crown, to protect it against water ingress to 10ATM.
Fitted with a genuine stingray leather strap, the Pirates Wristwatch will be issued in a limited series of only 88 examples in burnished Sterling Silver and 88 in Sterling Silver with Vermeil accents.
