Hand engraved watch - Seiko 5

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, this is my personal watch. I have been learning to hand engrave in my free time. It is an intricate art done under a microscope. I'm glad at how this Seiko 5 turned out :). I hope you enjoy the pictures

Damn that looks amazing. How did you manage to learn this technique? Have you practiced on others before?

I agree with gimli - Amazing! You are clearly mastering the art of hand engraving. Also impressive is the fact that your Seiko bracelet is stainless steel, which is surely a tricky metal to work with.:)

Thank you all for your kind words. 

Gimli: I have spent a lot of time practicing and planning my engravings. I started by watching youtube videos, especially those by 'Shaun Hughes'. I then focused on drawing and learning the graver technique. Initially I made gifts for my friends and family (such as the one in the video that 'wrench' posted above. I now co-run a facebook group called 'Hand engraving for all' where we help people learn how to engrave and share our work.

Alwayswatching: Yes stainless steel is a tricky metal to engrave. It leads to a lot of broken graver tips and resharpening. This piece took about 24 hours in total.

Wrench: Yes that video is me in my first year of engraving. This is my most recent youtube channel/video =

 

Caller: Yes I have engraved cases too.
