Watches include ETA Swiss quartz or mechanical movement, but some timepieces include 25 jewel self-winding chronograph movements. Strap watches have padding and stitched crocodile bands of premium quality.
Owned and operated by the Orgel family since 1894, the fourth-generation jewelers founded the company in New York and continue the tradition of providing high-end, beautiful watches and jewelry that’s recognized all around the world for its accuracy, beauty, and dependability.
Usually reserved for a limited edition offering or a commemorative design, the incorporation of platinum into the watch design signifies a dedication to high-quality and innovative offerings that come standard for the company. Although several companies have a couple of platinum models in continuing lines, Austern and Paul are the only high-end watch manufacturer that offers their platinum models customizable and available to reorder. Theirs may be the first full line of platinum timepieces in the U.S. and the pure, bright finish makes it a natural fit alongside its other jewelry.
About 40% of its sales are in karat gold watches, but platinum is the real white metal and the company shows it in their watch manufacturing. The pedigree of Austern and Paul has established them as a fine maker of gold and diamond private label watches and jewelry.
A U.S. manufacturer, Austern and Paul handcrafts its own bracelets and cases, setting all of its diamonds and even services clients’ repairs. Their flexibility comes from their location in New York.
Movements, dials, and crystals are Swiss-made and are trusted in both their most affordable models and high-end offerings. Austern and Paul offers more than 30 platinum watch styles, with many featuring bracelets complimenting the company’s gold and platinum jewelry.
