Dutch sophisticated, handmade, watch-art

A real dutch brand

Johan Büdgen is the man behind the dutch brand WatchID; since 2000 he makes his watch-jewels. He is an architect, a technician and designer, a man who also wants perfection for his jewelry. Therefore he designs and makes everything himself, except the saphire glass and Swiss movement.
July 2019 Zillawatch started being intermediair for WatchID, a new step into the future.

January the 12th of 2020 Johan launched the 39mm WatchID#6 at the “Rikketik” fair, Houten-Netherlands.

At the moment Johan has built three 39mm dressy watches; the 006, 007 & 008!
This first serie of 3 is ready and the 007 and 008 are ready for showing. Below you can see the all new design of the 39mm’s! These are watches with different STP calibers; the 007 has a skeletton movement.

The watch (jewelry, art?) is made of stainless steel, has the special “turning lugs” for a superb whrist-fit and the Swiss STP automatic movement.

I will have some pieces of art to show.

WatchID’s vision is very different:

They make art telling the time. Therefore look at the pictures and consider them as a curriculum vitae!

Do you like the style? Then you can contact me……

Together with WachID  your watch will be created as a beautiful one of a kind!
