There is a certain sense of glamour to the golden age of movie making in Hollywood and it is this elegance and sophistication that these gloriously appealing Hollywood Watch Company Watches tap into. But it’s not just essence of Hollywood that the timepieces tap into, it’s more tangible than that. The original Hollywood Sign was built in 1923, constructed for a real estate development called HOLLYWOODLAND. The word LAND was later removed. The prominent advertisement would go on to become one of the world’s most iconic and recognized landmarks; a symbol of hope, glamour and success.

The original sign was replaced in 1978 and the new sign was funded by Hugh Hefner, Alice Cooper and other Hollywood notables. The metal from the original sign was placed in storage and eventually sold. Hollywood Watch Company acquired the remaining metal from the original Hollywood Sign in 2017 and it is this metal which makes their fantastic timepieces have a direct line to the world of moviemaking and an A-list aesthetic that we’re loving here at Coolector HQ.
