A momentous occasion unfolded at the Manhyia Palace Wednesday during the Awukudae festival, as a remarkable custom-made timepiece was presented to the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

This exquisite watch, crafted in 18k gold plate, holds immense historical and cultural significance, and stands as a unique masterpiece with an appraised value of GH¢100,000.00.

Designed as a testament to the regal legacy of the Asantehene, the watch is a one-of-a-kind creation, affirming the unique status of Otumfuo Osei Tutu II as its sole owner.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the Warrior King Heritage timepiece encapsulates the essence of royalty and power.

Every element has been carefully chosen to symbolise the exceptional leadership qualities embodied by the Asantehene. The watch’s bold and elegant design reflects the regal demeanour of Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, capturing his charisma and influence.

The King’s customised piece was presented by Hourhand Watch CO’s CEO, Patrick Amofah, at the Awukudae grand durbar at Manhyia, on Wednesday, July 5, 2023.

This horological masterpiece will be a treasured possession in the collection of the Asantehene, as he becomes the sole owner of this extraordinary 1/1 watch.

The presentation represents a gesture of gratitude for Otumfuo’s tireless efforts in preserving the rich heritage of the Asante people and advancing their collective well-being.

Warrior King is a prestigious brand that connotes the Ghanaian prehistoric cultural, political and traditional origins in timepieces. The name Ghana literally means “Warrior King.”

“We want to tell the tales of the Gold Coast of Africa through our timepieces. We will use our watches to spread our values and heritage. We decided to create timepieces that will be recognised for their style, uncompromised robustness, and quintessential touch of our primordial roots, incorporating elements from the durability, ingenuity, and elegance of our ancestral artisans embodied into the workmanship of our craftsmen. We combined heritage with a contemporary modern twist to create a one-of-a-kind brand for you,” Patrick Amofah indicated.

Beyond its aesthetic brilliance, the timepiece features intricate engravings that narrate the rich history of the Asante Kingdom.
