Gasgasbones owner Carl Evans is putting blood, sweat and tears into the production of his latest limited edition watch.
As owner of the bespoke nylon watch strap business, Evans is used to getting his hands dirty but for his latest watch project, under his 6B brand, he will be making all of the straps as well as the presentation boxes in his workshop.
The 6B Mk2 pilots watches will be produced in a limited run of 50 pieces using a Valjoux 7750 chronograph movement and components sourced from the UK and Europe. Evans will also be produced the bespoke watch presentation boxes himself, with options in milled aluminium and routed solid oak. Each watch will be presented with leather and nylon Gasgasbones straps.
Evans introduced the world to 6B in 2013, creating just 20 pieces of the Mk 1 military-inspired watch which quickly sold out.
Evans promotes the 6B brand through a dedicated website and offers direct sales via his Gasgasbones website. The 6B Mk2 is available to buy for £1,795.
