Private Watchmaking Event
The Idaho Watch Collective is a community-based organization dedicated to promoting the art of watchmaking. Thus at one of the recent events, members were given a unique opportunity to hand make their own watch. Receiving some help along the way from our experienced in house watchmaker.
Amplitude 2022 was held at Simmons Fine Jewelry, where members gathered to learn the ins and outs of watchmaking. Also trying their hand at crafting their own timepieces. The watchmaker led the group through the process step by step, providing guidance and support along the way.
Each member was given a kit that included all the necessary components for their watch. Including the movement, case, dial, hands, and strap (Like Shown below). Components in the kit were carefully selected to ensure that each watch was functional, beautiful and unique.
Assembling The Watch
The process of assembling the watch was both challenging and rewarding. Members had to use precision tools and techniques to ensure that each component was properly fitted and aligned. The watchmaker provided guidance and feedback throughout the process, helping members troubleshoot any issues that undoubtedly arose and ensuring that each watch was of the highest quality.
The handcrafted watches were not only beautiful and functional, but they also represented a deep connection between the members and the art of watchmaking. Each watch was a testament to the dedication and passion of the members, and a symbol of the community that had come together to create something truly special.
The Amplitude 2022 was just one of the many events and activities that we hosted throughout the year. The Watch Collective is dedicated to promoting watchmaking and fostering a sense of community among the members. Whether you are a seasoned collector or just starting to learn about watches, the Idaho Watch Collective is a great place to connect with like-minded individuals and deepen your appreciation for this fascinating and equally intricate art form.
Overall, Amplitude was a huge success, and a testament to the skill and dedication of the members. It provided an opportunity for members to learn, connect, and create something truly special. It will no doubt be remembered as one of the highlights of the years event calendar despite being held early on in the year.
