Next to the self-winding mechanical movement, the features of the A46 include a sapphire lens on the back that enables you to see the clockwork. Two versions will be made; a black one with a handmade Italian leather strap and butterfly buckle, and a steel version with a steel bracelet.

With an even more industrial and raw design than the previous tube watches, it really stands on its own.


An exclusive watch deserves an accompanying exclusive box. These boxes are designed and produced by Piet Hein Eek and are made from cedar wood, but not just any wood.

In the olden days on New York’s skyline, the signature skyscrapers used to have huge water towers on top. These reservoirs were there to maintain the water pressure. Nowadays, these towers are of no use anymore, until Piet Hein Eek’s eye fell on them.

The boxes of the tube watch A46 Swiss automatic will be made from the wood of these barrels.

Every year, the A46 Swiss automatic is made in limited quantities and is only going to be available through a few selected stores. The first 300 that sign up will receive a box signed by Piet Hein Eek and a watch that will have its own unique number between 1 – 300 engraved.

Below, you can fill in your name, your e-mail address and your preferred model (black or steel) to order the A46 Swiss automatic. After submitting the form, you will receive an e-mail with the payment information.
The full price of the watch will be 990 euro, but we’re asking for a deposit of 250 euro, to ensure your watch with engraved number. After we’ve received your payment, we’ll send you a confirmation e-mail with the specific number of your watch.

Before the end of 2017, you’ll be one of the lucky first owners of these limited pieces.
