Cherwell - Black

Notify me when this product is available:

  • Four textures of inky black come together to form the striking face of the Cherwell Black. The raised central plateau, punctuated in its centre with angular, elegant polished hands, holds the sunken sub-dial, featuring a stunning radial pattern which catches the light and adds depth. Polished hour indices bridge the step down onto the outer ring, studded with subtle 'punched' square minute markers, all encased within the slim, polished case. A strong, elegant presence within our range, the Cherwell Black is an expression of exquisite design, carefully considered aesthetic and our passion for bringing something completely new to the hand-wound market.

The Beating Heart

We believe the rear of a watch should be as spectacular as the front, so the Cherwell flaunts its oscillating balance wheel with a large glass aperture. We use hand-wound mechanical movements in all our timepieces, and the beating heart of the Cherwell is the beautiful Sea-Gull ST36, which was selected not only for its reliability but also its delicate and eye-catching decorations.

Internal engraving on the crystal can be seen only at certain angles offering an intimate flourish. Surrounding this visual spectacle is an inverse engraving with the words of renowned British author, poet and scholar, C.S. Lewis - who along with fellow novelist J.R.R. Tolkien, were active in the informal Oxford literary group; the Inklings:

The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of sixty minutes an hour


Every element of the Cherwell's design has been carefully considered - a robust and accurate manual wind mechanical movement; a slim yet modern sized beautifully designed custom case; a large radial textured sub-dial displaying the sweeping seconds ticking by; and the bespoke crown designed to remind the wearer to turn it and keep that heart beating.

The Devil's In The Detail

Eschewing convention when it comes to watch boxes we've designed a very special box just for the Cherwell. The box, made from 3mm cardboard and wrapped in lovely Fedrigoni paper, has a single tray holding your Cherwell. Each tray has its own precision-milled dense foam cavity to hold the contents securely in place. All of this is enveloped in the Fedrigoni clad box, imprinted with a clear foil logo.
We're proud to offer the Cherwell with a 12-month movement guarantee - if anything does go wrong we're on hand to repair or replace it for you.
We ship our watches worldwide using DHL - once your order's dispatched we'll email your tracking number so you can keep an eye on its progress.
If you aren't completely satisfied with your timepiece you have 30 days to return it to us for a full refund (must be unworn and in the original packaging).
