Derwent - Classic

  • Our Classic version of the Derwent is born out of our love for traditional British watches of the 50s and 60s, with hi-dome acrylic crystals and small cases. We've added a few contemporary touches like a subtle domed dial leading outwards to an angled chapter ring and simple pitched profile hands for maximum readability, but the classic aesthetic remains.

    Most watches of this era had solid case-backs, but the Derwent Classic offers a small porthole displaying the balance wheel smoothly oscillating back and forth, another contemporary element bringing this timepiece into the 21st Century.



A Nod to Tradition

The Derwent range is 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. 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.


"The loveliest spot that man hath found"

In the north-west of England lies a mountainous region with breathtaking beauty. The Lake District, with it's valleys, woodlands, fells and lakes is captivating and stirs a hunger for the great outdoors.

Home to some of English literature’s greatest and most revered writers and poets, including author William Wordsworth, who wrote of it on many occasions.

Bordered by woods and towering crags, Derwent Water is surrounded by the magnificence of the Lake District - to its west rise the fells of Cat Bells, to the east Friar's Crag. The Derwent takes it's name from this lake as it was on her very banks the concept was born.
