Handmade .935 Argentium Silver Case with Vitreous Enamel Dial

In 2021, Lamb introduced his first series of watches: The Origin Series – a limited edition of 50 handmade watches. The first theme for this series is inspired by the classical elements of nature; Fire, Water, Air and Earth.

A culmination of James’ 20 years of experience in the watchmaking, silversmith and precision engineering industries, The Origin Series is James Lamb’s first release, showcasing traditional horological craft with entirely hand made .935 Argentium silver cases and champlevé vitreous enamel dials hand-crafted in Britain.

Integral throughout the manufacturing process: Soldering and annealing during casemaking and essential for firingthe vitreous enamel. Fire Element evokes deep red furnace with the carefully engraved flame pattern offering real depth and movement.

The Origin Series Argentium silver case is created entirely by James from flat stock bullion and shaped to final form using only simple hand tools, the lathe and fire. Not content with just making the case, other components James produces in his workshop are the sterling silver dial blanks, winding crown, pendant tube, sterling silver dial feet, ceramic subdial and decorated movement holder of the Origin Series.

The case design has presence but is comfortable for all wrist sizes. The finely profiled bezel and sapphire crystal maximises the aesthetic impact of the dial, yet allows the case to maintain moderate proportions.

Each case is hallmarked at the London Assay Office. The solid silver laser engraved case back is finished with a design that echoes the theme of the dial.
