I want to make beautiful A.MANTEI watches, with as much manual work as possible, using traditional methods and traditional computers (no CNC machine tools, no EDM, etc.).
I lead my own development and design and the necessary structure combination.
The dial, my hands and the panel are made by hand, from the most different solid materials. The dial is silver or gold because of my index, numbers and minutes, etc. Material eingraviere by hand. Subsequently, the "groove" was designed with enamel powder. This looks good and is long lasting. The silver dial rhodium is even fine silver to prevent discoloration. Tempered blue, satin or polished steel parts, but not engraved. The metal ring of my dial package is screwed on, so there is no dial foot, as provided by the industry. This has the following advantages, the stability is far better than with the foot, but can often bend or break. The dial can also be replaced by others.
With this type of production, it is possible that I change the design in each clock to make each clock individually unique. This way I can also respond to the needs of individual customers. The same pointer. By the way, 0.4mm thick hands, just start to browse cracked or beveled edges. The plasticity it brings and it looks more beautiful!
Why am I doing this?
Because it is my pleasure, because I can, because I can flow my creativity. What I did along the way was the preservation of the classic watchmaking craftsmanship.
Maybe your personal A.MANTEI clock will follow. But you can't decide to buy a clock? You come to me, take care of Itztehoe A.MANTEI watch closely.
The automatic movement of most A.MANTEI watches can be wound correctly by most watch winders. Usually, the automatic winding movement of A.MANTEI needs to rotate 650 to 800 revolutions per day, and most of them can rotate in combination mode. So please take some time and like to choose a cute clockwork that suits you and your watch.
It is no coincidence that most automatic watches produced today have very common spring specifications, so it is easy to find a suitable barrel.
Once the winder is programmed on the watch, you can keep it, which will leave your A.MANTEI watch intact and ready to wear!
The table below shows that most A.MANTEI watches sold today are wound in combination mode, but there are always exceptions, so please make sure you understand the correct specifications of the watch.
(Always make sure to use the manufacturer’s specifications as the "number of turns per day" and "winding direction". «CW»-clockwise winding direction; «CCW»-counterclockwise winding direction; «Both»-combined mode (clockwise Clockwise + counterclockwise) ;)
