The Whimsical Watches of Itay Noy
This week, our trip to the Worn & Wound archives brings us back to Baselworld 2017, and Ilya’s look at the watches of Itay Noy. Based in Israel, Itay Noy is an independent watchmaker with a focus on creating a bespoke and unique experience for his customer at a cost far less than an artisanal Swiss watch will set you back. He specializes in poetic and whimsical complications that often use heavily modified versions of off the shelf movements, with dial layouts that are unlike anything else on the market. If you’re convinced that originality is lacking in today’s watchmaking climate, be sure to check out Itay Noy to have your faith in original design restored.
