Heritage Time Works
Tempus Machina is driven by an obsession to build watches that represent a perfect balance of modern and vintage that faithfully unites several generations of legendary models. It is extremely rare to find craftsman that share a similar sense of design, coupled with the same attention to manufacturing detail that we demand of ourselves. Heritage Time Works is one such company. As such, we are proud to partner with them in their launch of the stunning CFG-01 and CFG-02.
The Rolex ref 6541 Milgauss conjures emotions in vintage watch enthusiasts unlike any other Rolex sport model. From the unique gilt waffle dial to the lighting sweep hand, HTW has captured every beautiful hallmark of this historically important timepiece in the CFG-01 and CFG-02.
One of the most recognizable sport watches ever made is the ‘lightning bolt’ Rolex Milgauss Ref. 6541 of the 1950’s. Faithfully reincarnated here with period-style features such as the gilt 'waffle' textured dial, work to create a perfect fusion of the old with the new.
The concept behind the watch was to create a true heritage timepiece that merged the very best elements of its modern incarnation in the Ref. 116400, as a highly wearable, robust and accurate watch, with the unique elegance of its grandafther, the legendary Rolex Ref. 6541 Milgauss. We have tried to be as faithful as possible with the features and details that have been modified or added, in the hope that we could honestly re-create a bit of horological magic of times past, for those discerning watch lovers of today.
