Archer Sterling Review - Canada

Postby koimaster » February 1st 2012, 7:52am

Archer Watches is a tiny independent watch brand located in St.Thomas, Ontario, Canada. Archer Watches is a one man operation, its staff consisting solely of a watchmaker named Al Jenskey. I had the pleasure of meeting Al at a Timezone dinner this past October and not only did I enjoy the opportunity to see much of the Archer range in person, but also to experience Al’s passion for watches and watchmaking. Al assembles all of the Archer models, which range from aviators and more dressy designs, by hand in his workshop. The Sterling fits into the casual space between dressy and sport and is a sound example of the marine officer style which offers excellent legibility and refined classic detailing.

My daughter thought I would get a kick out of this one. I asked her if this was based on first hand experience. :twisted:

His prices made me laugh. As did the meme.

His own microbrand might indeed blow - still, Al "Archer" Jenskey is one of the best people that one can trust with fixing a vintage Omega. Saw his work on ordinary watches, rarities ("lollipop" Speedy CK 2998), and seemingly hopeless cases. So, frankly, while the last thing I'd ever spend $1200 on is a watch from his brand, I can't really bash him - the quality of his watch restoration work is top-notch.
His deepest need was that people should like him. An admirable trait, that... In a spaniel, or a whore.
