For over 70 years the Italian company Giglio Asla have supplied the highest quality in inlaid wood all over the world. Especially for our Artisan series, they have designed cases both exceptional in quality and appearance which are detailed with intarsia of the classic Salvador Dali work of art known as Danae. Intarsia designs are created with hundreds of tiny pieces of wood, carefully selected, to make each item one of unique beauty and craftsmanship. The particular variety of woods, originating for the most part from Europe and Africa, the drying process, the assembly and varnish processes, all contribute towards the making of exceptional cases. The meticulous puzzle-like assembly of tiny pieces of wood may require up to 25 different wood varieties. Giglio's woods are perfectly dried and the veneering is meticulously selected. The woods comprise ebony, elmwood, maple, poplar, briar, rosewood, vavon and walnut dyed in different colors. Inside the special designed case is an easily removable drive station fitted with three Swiss-made ironless core drive motors to provide independent operation for each of the three rotating cups.

From our customers:
After placing my order I received a personal e-mail from Craig, the owner. The winder was delivered very quickly and he followed up with a personal note! I was very impressed with the personal touch so often absent in e-Commerce these days
I am UK-based so initially approached Timescape with some caution. However, Craig and Jacob could not have been more professional and helpful. From initial discussion right through to monitoring the international shipping they were excellent.
After a frustrating search for someone who could help me in replacing two watch modulars for my Scatola del Tempo watch winder I came across this site. I found on their site exactly what I was looking for and Zanetta assisted me and made sure I got exactly what I needed.
I could not be more happy with my experience!
I ordered this watch winder never seeing one in person. The jeweler I bought my watch from recommended Orbita. This was beyond my expectation. The workmanship is superb. The package was wrapped in multiple layers of protection. Once opened the winder was found to be an exceptional work of art. Fast shipping too!
