LA CALIFORNIENNE

Rolex Oyster Perpetual DateJust 1601 Leather Strap Watch

laCalifornienne draws inspiration from the pink and blue magic hour skies of California. From our Los Angeles workshop, we restore vintage timepieces and reimagine them in bold color.

Each watch is given the utmost attention to detail including servicing the movement and refinishing the case to the original specifications in which the watch left the factory. While all of our watches pay homage to their original concept, we find our process to be part of a new beginning. Each dial and strap are hand-painted to produce a unique timepiece. We take great pride in sourcing leathers from some of the best tanneries in the United States and Europe and they are, by design, made to age beautifully and distinctively with each wear.

We aspire to find a new generation of caretakers for our vintage watches that we have revived with a touch of the California spirit. We guarantee our timepieces to be 100% authentic and as described. 

Circa 1973 automatic timepiece with solid 14K gold accents set on a handmade vegetable tanned leather strap featuring hand-painted stripes and custom buckle. This has a miss matched box, so the card and sticker on the box are not for this watch, but the tag is still on it. It has scratches on the crystal from the bag. These crystals are very easy to polish or changed for minimal cost.
