A new Josh Shapiro
I received my Josh Shapiro Infinity watch today. It’s stunning. There are a few special features of the watch that are worth highlighting.
The dial is ruthenium and the way it plays with light is mesmerizing.
The numerals on the chapter ring are heat blued and match the heat blued hands. The numerals were first hand engraved. Josh then heat blued the entire chapter ring and brushed it. All that remained blue were the numerals. Again, the interplay between these numerals and the light is fascinating. At times they appear black, at other times, bright blue.
The caseback is engine turned and engraved with a Lithuanian snake called Žaltys, king of the grass snakes, a symbolic protector of the family. It’s coiled in the shape of an infinity sign to reference the watch.
Well done, Mr. Shapiro.
