Hulsman Timepieces is a luxury watch atelier specialized in producing bespoke mechanical luxury timepieces, based in Hilversum in The Netherlands. Established by Machiel Hulsman, this horological workshop translates customer ideas into designs and makes unique timepieces from scratch by hand. Machiel’s goal is to never make the same watch and to constantly discover new designs and techniques together with the customer. Things can always be better. The first creation from Hulsman Timepieces is Marie-Elise, the first watch fully handmade in the Netherlands in history.
Marie-Elise (2019) Time only
Meet the first entirely handmade Dutch wristwatch;
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 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. 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.
