A Wristwatch Face Made Of Sealing Wax. BOAT Introduces The Custom Sealed Watch.


Hong Kong based boat (Be Optimistic and Thankful) has introduced the unusual and fun ‘Sealed Watch.’ The modern, simple, colorful unisex wristwatches are made to order based on your own color choices of face, hands, bezel and strap.

High grade sealing wax is heated to the appropriate temperature and then melted onto the dial where it is stamped with a seal in a specific pattern.


After cooling, the dial, hands, strap and movement are then assembled by hand with care and passion.

The watch is then checked for quality and functionality, then packaged and shipped worldwide with a confirmation e-mail and tracking order.



Note: the face of the watch is truly made from wax with a minimum melting point of 140- 158 degrees farenheit (60 -70 degrees celsius), so don’t leave it in direct sun or in very hot conditions because it will melt.
