With a grandfather and great grandfather working as watchmakers, crafting watches was a natural step for Master Jeweller and Curtis Australia founder Glenn Curtis to take. Watches from Curtis Australia reflect the brand's jewellery heritage, with solid gold cases less engineered, but more fluid in shape - from a material perfectly understood that adds a distinctive character to the hand crafted watch. Enjoy browsing our watch collections as much as we have in bringing them to you.
The distinctive, softly curved octagonal shape of the Motima watch case needed an entirely fresh approach to create. The case body is carefully forged at over 1,080 degrees Celsius before being individually hand finished. It takes over 30 hours to hand lathe and fit the individual parts before we install the Swiss made, 25 jewel automatic movement - all from our own Australian watchmaking studio.
Each Curtis Australia watch is made individually, there are no production lines in our studio and we never rush anything. Any extra time the watchmakers and jewellers at Curtis Australia spend refining and finishing is not a consideration when making your watch, the pursuit of excellence is our only objective.
Glenn Curtis explains the Curtis philosophy of designing everything here in Australia. “We design and make prototypes of all the watch parts in house. By creating all the prototypes ourselves we ensure that the look, the balance and comfort are as we envisaged. We can also make adjustments and improvements as we go, resulting in a more efficient and seamless timeline from concept to finished watch"

“TO GET SOME INKLING OF THE CRAFTSMANSHIP AND SKILL THAT GO INTO A CURTIS AUSTRALIA WATCH, CRAFTED IN VICTORIA BY WORLD-RENOWNED JEWELLER GLENN CURTIS, JUST TURN ONE OVER... THE SCREWS THAT SECURE THE CASE-BACK ARE A WORK OF ART IN THEIR OWN RIGHT.” STEVE COLQUHOUN, ROBB REPORT
