A fine ladies’ watch comes from The Netherlands

Surprisingly good watches are coming from The Netherlands these days. This time a novelty is a lady’s watch set with diamonds, made by a very experienced watch maker. The producer is Schaftenaar Watches. Owner of the brand is Arnold Schaftenaar, who comes from a jeweler’s family and learned the craft from the Schoonhoven Watch School. He launched his first watches in 2012, two gentleman pieces called the Traveller and the Journey.

This year marks the launch of a new ladies watch: the Lady S. This watch is based on the existing Lady model but with a few extra’s to make it sparkle even more. The first and most foremost addition is a string of beautiful brilliants set in the bezel.

In his nearly forty years of experience, Arnold Schaftenaar learned a huge amount about watch making, and he has used all of this knowledge in his own products. The watches are all made in The Netherlands, with the best materials. From handmade leather straps to bespoke cases and dials. The case is made of stainless steel and has an elegant diameter of 35 millimetres.

Powering this wonderful creation is a Swiss made automatic movement, made by A. Schild and assembled by Schaftenaar in The Netherlands. As he is a trained and educated watch maker, he will personally make sure every watch will do its humble work with the utmost precision. The watch has a power reserve of 40 hours.

To cement this quality, all watches that come out of the workshops of Schaftenaar Watches have a guarantee of 5 years. The watch is now available and it is priced at € 5225,=

The author 0024 Editorial Team

When we started publishing our first high-end watch magazine in 1999, we had only one intention: increasing the popularity of high-quality mechanical watches. Now, many years later, this has not changed at all. In 2017 we have reinvented ourselves to serve our readers in a different and better way. Starting in 2017, the new 0024 is again better equipped to interact with the changing world of high-end watches. The new 0024 HORLOGES magazine (written in Dutch) will be at least a 200 pager: that’s twice the volume of our magazine in the old days.
