Westfal watches – a different view of time

Westfal Watch is a Czech microbrand focused on the handmade production of design watches.

Westfal primarily uses unconventional materials and objects alongside traditional mechanisms and procedures in watch production. Their goal is to produce and design high-quality watches with a unique perspective. Therefore, Westfal uses materials such as carbon, camel bones, glass, and both rare and semi-rare stones and diamonds. Thanks to this all Westfal watches are very original.

Westfal priority is to cooperate especially with local Czech brands and connection of traditional crafts together.

The Glass watch

The Westfal Glass watch is made with the cooperation of three Czech companies, and as the name itself suggests, glass has become dominant here.

The dial processed in the traditional glass method, followed by grinding, drilling and surface treatment, was created by MgA. Martina Mokošínová — brand Marti Sklo. This amazing work and knowledge of the field, has given the watch a unique design and considerable distinguishableness from other brands.

Crowning the entire design is a beautiful leather strap , also handmade, from the workshop of Ing. Jaroslava Vaculík — Ogarbags brand. Feeling for the design and perfection of the strap in every detail, completes the entire composition, gives it grace.

How everything started? The first idea “to create your own watch” began in the summer of 2021. The founder started with the purchase of machinery, reverse engineering, where in March 2022 the project took a real shape and the idea was turned into in-house production.

Drawing on experience from automotive design and a strong passion for creation, our idea began to take physical shape.

Technical specifications:

Case — 316L steel watch case with a diameter of 42 mm
