Hemingway Writer

‘The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places.’

Hemingway’s early bestsellers, A Farewell to Arms, and The Sun Also Rises, reflected his experiences as an injured soldier in the First World War and his place in the intelligentsia of Paris in the 1920s. Already as a young man, he was an established and respected writer. Yet his life was to prove him a man of many parts.


VB’s Writer Watch is an expression of Ernest Hemingway as one of American’s most famous 20th century writers. As his writing has been appraised, VB’s Writer Watch is undauntedly honest, bringing together precise technology and simple elegance with its retro dial, and rose gold hands. Its brown sugar watch face and leather strap exude the aura of a great writer’s study. The leather armchair, the Royal Quiet de Luxe typewriter on a bookshelf in his Havana Home (Hemingway liked to write standing up!) and the smoking Cuban cigar.


22.00 mm brown sugar Italian crushed leather strap with off white stitching to match the brown suger dial and a custom made two tone steel VB buckle.
