In early 2017, a group of passionate cinema and history buffs and art and watch enthusiasts, were able to acquire all of the remaining metal from the original Hollywood Sign with the goal of preserving history… but much more than preserving history, our goal was to find a way to hand the world’s sign back to the people. And so, Hollywood 1923 was born.
History should not be forgotten and distant. History can and should be at our very fingertips. Connected. Relevant. Timeless. So after much deliberation over how best to achieve this, we decided to fuse history and time together…
Working with America’s most famous old-world boutique watchmaker, Roland Murphy of RGM in Mt Joy, Pennsylvania, we created a luxury men's watch that would stand the test of time and become a repository of history with a section of the original sign integrated into the dial…history, at your fingertips. Only twelve were made of these supremely limited timepieces.
With over 15 years experience in luxury retail, with a focus on fine art, our next project was to create a framed collectible featuring one square inch of the metal along with a commemorative plaque and historic photos of the golden age of Hollywood, becoming the perfect collectible for the home or office, to be enjoyed with friends and family and to create a legacy for future generations to be caretakers of the sign.
Check in with us frequently as we will be evolving our Hollywood Sign product offerings every few months to satisfy collectors of all tastes and budgets.
