KETELAARS WATCHES

Ketelaars Watches is a Dutch fine horology brand founded by Stefan Ketelaars in 2017. This independent brand produces hand-crafted mechanical timepieces in limited series. Presently, the brand offers three watch collections: Time in Motion, 3D Terra in Motion and Terra Luna. All of these timepieces are equipped with modified, high-end ETA Caliber 6497 movements.

Ketelaars Time in Motion

Time is defined as the indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present, and future regarded as a whole. It cannot be grasped, contained, controlled but can be measured. The Ketelaars Time in Motion watch model takes inspiration from Time. Its dial design highlights two elements, the balance wheel that shows the motion of time and the flying regulator sub-dial.

There are two versions available: Day Time in Motion with brass nickel plated, sunburst grinded dial and Night Time in Motion with Black etched brass, circular grinded dial.
