This is one of those watches that begs to be stared at and when you do, there’s a feast of beautifully honed detailing that perfectly demonstrates the Founders obsessive nature. From the deployment rubber strap buckle, the subtle box sapphire crystal, lozenge-smooth ceramic bezel insert, to the highly polished case details that provide so much of this model’s character.
A chalky, inky, deep ocean blue isn’t an easy colour to pull off; not too bright, not too dark, a unique colour specifically created for this model.
The two layer sandwich dial suits the blue hue so well, highlighting the embossed basket weave signature texture adorning the recessed centre and softened with local Purbeck stone colour luminescent hour batons and hands, framed in brushed matt silver that glow brightly when visibility reduces.
The unique basket weave texture was created from elements from the EB shield, it also adorns the outer surface of the textured rubber strap and surrounds the raised shield emblem within the deeply detailed case back. It provides much of the classic character this watch delivers so well, whilst remaining perfectly current for today’s demanding audience.
At 40mm case diameter (41mm bezel) this is one of our smaller watches yet wears easily over a wetsuit or dressed for an evening out. Being based on the edge of Europe’s largest natural harbour with its strong maritime links, this model is an instant HQ favourite. The blue rubber strap is a thing of beauty but when we tried a brushed steel B07 bracelet and dark blue heritage webbing straps, it took on a totally new character – perfect for dressing up or down.
The 120 click unidirectional timing bezel on this watch frames the box crystal so perfectly, tapering gently towards the outer circumference, a precise ceramic insert gleaming with the clearest markings, the tiniest chamfer of highly polished steel contrasting perfectly between the gloss black ceramic and low profile, grippy coin edged splines.
When you’re putting your name to a watch you’ve created, it puts a certain pressure not only to make every watch a thing of obsessive beauty but to ensure it will perform no matter how harsh the conditions. That’s why we build in a shock protection system for the Swiss movement, created triple seals for the crown stem, indestructible strap bars that are a cinch to change, we only use the best, most durable materials, test every watch in water at 200m and can repair and fettle them for life long after the 5 year warranty expires so you never need to worry.
