THE ROYTER WATCHES

Founded by an inspired self-taught watchmaker Dan Royter in New York, ROYTER Watches became a young, vibrant, independent watch brand that creates exclusive luxury sports watches for every day. Recognized by the watch community and enthusiasts worldwide, ROYTER are proven to be versatile and highly reliable watches that would satisfy even the most demanding connoisseur. With a very small annual production of 50-75 watches, Dan finishes and assembles each timepiece in his NYC atelier using traditional techniques executed by hand with great love and passion. With total involvement in the process from start to finish, Dan is able to have a complete control over craftsmanship, quality and customer satisfaction.

LACQUERED HANDS 

Lacquering chronograph hands manually is a form of art and by far no easy task. Process requires a highly trained eye, steady hand and high level of skill. Royter paints each and every hand by hand with high precision using various colors chosen by the client. During the execution, it is important to maintain 100% focus and concentration for the result to be perfect.

Our custom tailored leather straps are individually hand stitched by a seasoned artisan with the highest level of technical execution. Using wide range of colors and textures they are made to measure from 100% genuine, top grade exotic leather materials and fitted on a stainless steel Royter single deployant folding clasp. No detail is overlooked and every stitch is truly flawless

HAND FINISHED ROTOR 

Each rotor is shaped and finished using traditional techniques. Using special hand-held burnishing tools the edges are cut, smoothed and beveled along the edge at an angle of 45 degrees. After, the bevels are carefully polished by hand with various density pith-wood sticks and diamond paste to create the final mirror polish. Finally the rotor is hand engraved with the logo and dipped in rhodium for the final bright white finish.   

HAND POLISHED CASE 

Each case is carefully polished and satin brushed by hand to perfection. It is carried out with rotary tool fitted with soft cotton buffing wheels augmented by polishing pastes with fine abrasives. To achieve ideal depth of brilliance at every angle, this process requires a steady hand, an intense attention to detail and many years of experience.
