HWC is making watches with an artifact, an actual piece of the original Hollywood Sign preserved inside a Swiss-made watch.
HOLLYWOOD, Fla., Sept. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- It's not commonly known that the original Hollywood sign from 1923 was replaced in 1978, a costly movement spearheaded by celebrities including Hugh Hefner and Alice Cooper. HWC purchased the remaining metal from the original sign and designed a functional way for fans to own a piece of this iconic monument. Everyone loves movies – now enthusiasts can enjoy the legacy of film by placing a piece of its history onto their wrist.

The metal from the original sign is finite. Only a select few will be able to own an HWC timepiece with Hollywood sign metal on the dial. Named The Premiere Edition, this watch is timeless yet contemporary.
HWC spent two years refining the design to ensure the very best Swiss-made quality at an affordable price.
