William L. Mitchell was a great car designer, the Vice President of Design for General Motors in America.  He is credited with many famous sayings, one of them was that "Love starts with a look".  This profound statement does not apply only to cars, but to everything that we are attracted to in life.
Here at the Wandolec Art Studio in Kiev we know what those words mean. For the successful sale of each of our Noble Design Watches is dependant on the aesthetics of the newly created case that will attract that "Look".  After the "Look" comes the wonderful revelation that a movement from an iconic brand has been meticulously restored and is housed within it, resulting in a historic and beautiful little time machine.
The combination of an iconic movement and the aesthetic "Look" results in a Noble Design Watch.  A one of a kind  that is unique and special.   
See them on my website, wandolec.com, and find the one that has the look that you will love.


I have often heard people say, “I am not creative”. NOT TRUE!

All of us, every single person, is creative. People just do not focus on it. Creativity is part of the human character, expressed in many ways and it is how we have been able to advance as a civilization. Some people intuitively become very good at being creative and that leads them to careers influenced by the arts. Fine art, music, design, writing, fashion and all of the professions and hobbies strongly influenced by art are rooted in creativity.

When first discovering creativity by accident people then enjoy the special feeling it gives them.


 All Antique watches are mechanical. Many repairs will not be cheap, as most likely they will require replacement of non-standard parts (unlike most late model watches).

- Antique watches should not be beaten or dropped - because repairs may be expensive.

- Antique watches are generally NOT waterproof. This is because waterproofing was not in general production until the middle of the 20th century for most watches. Therefore you should protect your antique watch from exposure to moisture.

About a hundred years ago the pocket watches were replaced by the wrist watches. By this time many different Watch Factories and their know-how started to disappear.

The quality of the pocket watches of this period is conclusive until today. At this time the watchmaker's tradition was at its zenith in over than 500 years of the history of watchmaking since the era of Leonardo da Vinci.
