how a watch case is made

Here at Mr Jones Watches, we thought it would be interesting to show you how our watch cases are made. The cases are roughly stamped out of stainless steel sheet and then gradually refined in seven subsequent stages.

Under immense pressure the first tool stamps out a crude and chunky face, virtually unrecognizable from the finished article.

By the third stage, the face is more slimline and refined, and the hole for the winding crown has been punched through.

 And by the final stage, the watch case is refined, hand polished, and ready to go! 

This photograph shows just how much the watch face evolves from the first and seventh stages.

You'll recognize this watch face from our 'Cyclops', and 'Everyday Special' watches.
