Applying traditional hand engraving techniques to the exteriors of modern Hamilton, Rolex, Tag Heuer, and other wristwatches.
In his shop near Tyler, Texas, one can still find an engraver totally
immersed in his craft using hand made tools to enhance a fine watch in many custom
designs and motifs. David Wade Harris born July 11, 1963 in Oak Cliff, a Dallas
suburb, is a master engraver who was taught hand engraving by the late, renowned,
Ft. Worth Jeweler and engraver, Weldon Bledsoe who in turn learned from famous
Engraver Cole Agee.
David’s wife was instrumental in him having the opportunity to meet Weldon
Bledsoe in the 1980’s. She was working for the plating company where Mr.
Bledsoe took his work and had Mr. Bledsoe engrave a piece for David for
Christmas. David immediately became interested in learning to engrave.
