Art Deco was a style of arts, architecture and design popular in the 1920s and 1930s, characterized by geometric forms and rich decorations. What makes Art Deco special is that its influence spread all over society: it was the first democratized art style. Art Deco was not only to be found in classical concepts of art -such as sculptures, architecture and literature- but also in everyday objects. Whether lamps or furniture, glasses or watches: art and design became part of everyday life.
Every Art Deco watch tells its own story. A watch designed in the ‘Happy Twenties’ will often be made of luxurious materials that, on top of its historical and authentical value, makes the watch worthwhile. Quality of case materials decreased after the 1929 Crash –stainless steel, for example, was replaced with chromed metal. Therefore you will not find many valuable Art Deco watches from the 1930s. However, many military watches are worth quite a lot despite of low quality cases; they tell incredible World War ΙΙ stories ánd still tell time…
Some vintage watches are still provided with the original, curved bombeé glass. But since bombeé glass is expensive to reproduce, most Art Deco watches you find on the market right now contain regular glass. Every watch has a different story to tell, whether in the form of scratches or replacements…
Inspired by the positiveness and rich history behind the Art Deco watches from 1920-1950?
Discover Aleksandr Nesterenko Art Deko watch. A hand made luxury wristwatch by Russian independent watchmaker Alexsandr Nesterenko in a 42mm case of stainless steel, and presented on dark blue alligator leather strap with pin buckle. Grey dial with blue centre panel featuring hand guilloché decoration and ornate steel hands. Sapphire caseback revealing modified Raketa Cal. 2609 hand winding mechanical movement with 42 hour power reserve.
A superb piece of individual and elegant beauty, the Art Deko watch by emerging Russian independent watchmaker Aleksandr Nesterenko is a watch which formally announces the arrival of another young talent to the wider international community of collectors and connoisseurs of artisanal watchmaking.
With much of the watch fabricated by hand in Nesterenko’s home city of Saint Petersburg, whose magnificent architecture provided inspiration for its sophisticated styling, the Art Deko is certainly an impressive piece, and throughout it boasts a remarkable level of detail and exceptional finishing, and in particular a dial which is breathtaking in its artistry.
Equally adaptable as a dress watch or simply as an accompaniment to a smart casual look, the Art Deko is presented in a stainless steel case which measures 42mm across, and features polished bezel and upward facing surfaces, with a brushed waist.
Beneath a gently domed sapphire crystal, the dial and hands are beautifully executed. A two part outer band in grey features a black minutes track, with fine roman numerals in white print around the edge, while immediately inset, the applied hour indices stand out in royal blue, and taper to points. The polished hour and minute hands are Nesterenko signatures, with pronounced ‘pomme’ circles just before their arrow-point tips.
Most striking of all is the mesmerising pattern of guilloché decoration which engraved deep into the deep blue surface of the dial’s central panel. Overlapping rings swirl outwards from the centre to create an intense ripple effect which plays with the light and irresistibly catches the eye. Machined by hand using traditional guilloché rose engine, it is outstandingly accomplished.
On the underside of the watch, a sapphire exhibition caseback reveals a manual winding Russian-made Raketa Cal 2609 movement. Disassembled and finished by Aleksandr Nesterenko, the large three quarter plate has a circular brushed finish, while the balance cock features a coarse grainy frosting. Beating at 21’600 vib/h (3hz) the single barrel provides a power reserve of at least forty two hours.
With each piece individually manufactured, no two Art Deko pieces are identical, and with dial variations and movement finishing options also available, each one is uniquely exclusive.
