Montegrappa Announces the limited edition Pirates Wristwatch
July 24, 2017: Montegrappa is pleased to announce the release of a wristwatch to accompany the Pirates Pens as part of their Pop Culture collection that honors artists, individuals, and parts of pop culture alike. To complement the Pirates writing instruments, the Pirates Wristwatch is embellished with precious metal overlays that reproduce the motifs of buccaneer culture in intricate detail. The 43mm case made with the jewelry lost-wax casting technique is finished in burnished Sterling Silver, or Sterling Silver with Vermeil (yellow gold plated) accents. 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. The watch is equipped with the renowned ETA 2824 automatic caliber, and the case is secured by four screws and features a screw-down crown, to protect it against water ingress to 10 ATM. 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.
