Bespoke watches entirely made by Machiel Hulsman

The sky is the limit when it comes to Hulsman's bespoke watches with the client getting to choose everything - from design to complications.


Hulsman Timepieces

machiel_hulsmanHulsman Timepieces is a watchbrand for passionate people, who always dreamed about having their own exclusive and unique watch.

From design to finishing including screws, plates, bridges, springs (except the balance and mainspring) are crafted by Machiel on an vintage lathe and turning machines. Everything is entirely made in The Netherlands.

From now on it’s possible to bring your ideas of a perfect watch to life by co creating a watch with Machiel from Hulsman Timepieces.

The First Entirely Handmade Dutch Wristwatch

Meet the first watch entirely made in the Netherlands; The Marie-Elise. The Marie-Elise has a rose gold case with open lugs and a silver guilloche dial with heat blued steel hands and indices. The manual wound mechanical movement has been designed, calculated and manufactured from scratch.

The 3/4 platine with blued screws and gold chatons shows the black polished balance bridge. Côtes de Genève, perlage, anglage, black polish, etc have all been executed to the highest standards.

The movement features hand cut and polished rubies in the barrel as well as many other hand cut rubies like the pallets and impulse jewel, 20 jewels in total. Inside the movement there is a triangle shaped pallet fork made from hardened steel, an innovation that is lighter than a regular pallet fork and is more efficient. The movement offers a power reserve of 46 hours.

Creating your own truly bespoke timepiece

Hulsman Timepieces offers bespoke projects in various styles such as sporty, classic or any according your wishes. Watch designs with complications like perpetual calendar, 3D moon, tourbillon, remontoir etc. are possible. Currently I am working on a Double barrel tourbillon watch with jumping hours and retrograde minutes. If you have an idea about your next watch or if you’re interested in a proposal from my side, please let’s get in touch.
