Derwent - Sundial

Notify me when this product is available:

  • This timepiece is a contemporary take on the oldest means of reading the time; the sundial. Taking its red and blue details from the Countess Pillar in Northern England, the Derwent Sundial features only hour markings, as did its ancestors, but gives small indicators of the minutes as they pass to bring the design back to present day. Delicate rose gold pitched-profile hands sweep their way around the fine detail lines of the dial, tying together with the rose gold case which gives this watch its warm glow.

    Harking back to the dress watches of the 50s and 60s, the Derwent features a hi-dome custom acrylic crystal. Case backs in this era were typically solid, but the Sundial caseback provides a return to the 21st Century, with a small porthole displaying the balance wheel smoothly oscillating back and forth; a small glimpse into the heart of a watch which has a big story to tell.

The Beating Heart

We use hand-wound mechanical movements in all of our timepieces. The beating heart of the Derwent is the harmonious Miyota 6T33, which was selected not only for its reliability, but also for its incredibly accurate time keeping.

A quick peek at the case-back and you'll find a porthole displaying the balance wheel smoothly oscillating back and forth, keeping accurate time whilst o­ffering a quick visual indicator of your Derwent's current power status.

Surrounding the port hole window is a sunburst radial pattern which is a nod to the Japanese machine whirring within.

A Nod to Tradition

The Derwent is a watch designed with nods to a few traditional timepieces whilst offering a more contemporary touch. A diameter of 38mm harks back to the dress watches of the 50's and 60's, with the hi-dome custom acrylic crystal also lending itself to the classic aesthetic. The dial is more contemporary with a subtle domed form leading outwards to an angled chapter ring, which draws the eye in towards the dial. The simple pitched profile hands afford the maximum readability whilst continuing the traditional yet contemporary feel.

The Devil's In The Detail

Inspired by our original Cherwell box, we've designed a single tier box especially for the Derwent. The box, made from 3mm card and wrapped in lovely Fedrigoni paper, contains a single drawer with its own precision-milled dense foam cavity to hold your timepiece securely in place. All of this is enveloped in the Fedrigoni clad box, imprinted with a clear logo and finished with a pristine band with our embossed crown icon. Inside you'll find a traditional letter-pressed insert telling you a little more about your Derwent.
