My name is Itay Noy. I’m an independent timepiece maker – one of a few dozen throughout the world. Since 2000 I have been creating limited-edition hand-crafted
watches, one new collection every year.
My studio is located in the old city of Jaffa, where each watch is assembled to order, by hand; I make about 120 pieces a year, all in my own original designs, using components & movements of the highest quality integrated with in-house dynamic dials, modules and complications.
Itay Noy graduated with a BFA from the Jewelry department in the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, followed by a M.Des. from the Design Academy in Eindhoven. His work has been exhibited in museums around the world and acquired by important collections such as those of the Israel Museum, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, the Charles Bronfman Collection in New York and the Droog Collection in Amsterdam. He is the recipient of nine prizes, including the Andy Prize for the Arts, the Israeli Ministry of Culture Prize and the America-Israel Cultural Foundation Prize. Since 2005 he lectures on timepiece making and design at the Bezalel Academy Of Art and Design in Jerusalem.
In-house dynamic dials modules and complications
Itay Noy is certainly one of the most truly creative watchmakers of the moment, and moreover he occupies a very interesting and unusual niche for such a limited production
