We wanted to create a timepiece with a foot in both the traditional and the contemporary; with a strikingly unique yet reassuringly familiar design. For the Lomond Chronoscope we kept some elements of our earlier designs whilst developing a timepiece that stands apart, not just within our own range but also within the market it exists. This is a more complex mechanical timepiece, offering both accurate timekeeping and time measurement, therefore the design needs to reflect the need for additional information, whilst remaining true to our core belief of essentials only, clutter free design.
Of all the Lochs in Scotland, few have as much connection in popular culture as Loch Lomond. An hour north-west of Glasgow, Loch Lomond is the gateway to the Highlands - a distinct visual indicator that you're about to enter the most beautiful place on Earth.
Most associated with the song “The Bonnie Banks o’ Loch Lomond”, Loch Lomond is also the name of Whisky drank by Captain Haddock in Herge’s Adventures of TinTin. It’s a glorious place full of activity and culture, and also hosts a mob of wallabies on one of the islands within the Loch - one of the few places where wallabies exist outside of Australia.
Named after this Loch, the Lomond Chronoscope expands the growing range of timepieces from MWC, which now includes the original Cherwell and the smaller diameter Derwent.
