Distinctively different, crafted with passion
Certainly, all watches tell the time. But few are crafted by hand one at a time, with every step perfected before moving to the next. Only when the case is completely finished do we fit the highly accurate and reliable Swiss movement that are recognised as being among the best at time keeping.
This is what sets our Motima watches apart, together with their distinctive style. Our heritage dates back before the 1890’s, but our designs are certainly not the same old designs others have. So when you’re looking for something different – why not embrace the unique.
The Motima range are at the pinnacle of men’s watchmaking, designed to be a practical, reliable dress watch. With a screw down crown to reduce dust, eight hand made solid gold or titanium screws secure the stainless steel exhibition case back, protecting the beautifully engraved rotor fitted to the precise Swiss movement. There’s no problem if you haven’t worn your watch for a while either – the 42 hour power reserve will keep your automatic watch ticking.
In Motima, Australian jewellery skills and watchmaking creativity meets the excellence of Swiss watch making in a considered and well balanced design, one with more than a touch of flair.
The shapes and lines of classic automobiles are just one source of inspiration for Motima Perpetual Watches
The softly curved octagonal shape of the Motima Perpetual XT watch case brings you an elegant, distinctive watch that suits any occasion from relaxed through to formal.
Each Curtis Australia watch is made individually, there are no production lines in our studio and we never rush anything; any extra time the watchmakers and jewellers at Curtis Australia spend refining and finishing is not a consideration when making your watch, the pursuit of excellence is our only objective.
TO GET SOME INKLING OF THE CRAFTSMANSHIP AND SKILL THAT GO INTO A CURTIS AUSTRALIA WATCH, CRAFTED IN VICTORIA BY WORLD-RENOWNED JEWELLER GLENN CURTIS, JUST TURN ONE OVER… THE SCREWS THAT SECURE THE CASE-BACK ARE A WORK OF ART IN THEIR OWN RIGHT.
