Our creative team sat down with famed American boutique watchmaker, Roland Murphy, of RGM in Mount Joy, PA, and sought to design a timepiece that was wearable by the modern man, but evoked a sense of the history, fashion and taste of the Golden age of Hollywood. The American designed and manufactured watch case is reminiscent of the housing on a classic 1930’s spotlight. The dial has a subtle outline of an old film reel. The numbers pay tribute to the Art Deco fashion, taste and architecture that was prominent during the 1930’s and 40’s. And, of course, the metal from the 1923 sign is featured prominently on the dial. This is a project and design that is a history-making first in global watchmaking and any watch connoisseur should aspire to have this masterpiece in their collection.
At the heart of the Founders watch beats a Swiss-made mechanical movement. Selected for its precision and quality, this is a timepiece that can easily be passed through the generations. Large watch components such as the case, dial, and of course, the Hollywood sign ‘badge’ are made in the USA. Manufacturing and assembly is all done by hand at RGM’s boutique manufacture in Mount Joy, PA, the historic heart of American watchmaking.
