The Centenary Edition is a celebration of a man borne of speed obsession who would travel firmly and resolutely into the annuls of speed history. His achievement on land and water captivated, inspired and motivated people to be better, to chase harder and love stronger. This 100 piece edition marks the 100th year from the day Donald Campbell was brought into this world, and with this unique conduit of memory we celebrate the inimitable speed master.

OFFICIAL COMMEMORATIVE EDITION

The design of the Centenary Edition is unique - we've taken a back seat - our logo is printed in clear gloss whilst Donald's iconic Bluebird logo is centre stage. Glistening salt-white, gold and Bluebird blue, the Centenary Edition is heavenly in its presentation - classic, clean and uncomplicated. The gold-edged dial is surrounded by a moat of lume which is startlingly bright in vivid blue - Donald's lucky colour - and just wait until you see the Bluebird icon at night.

We're also honoured to be permitted to use the great man's signature on our exhibition case back, and sign off this edition with the etched and paint-filled markings "Speed Record Breaker On Land And Water - Official Commemorative Edition - Donald Campbell". A final unique touch to an already incredible watch. Supplied on a salty sand rally strap as standard, and numbered 001-100.

COMMEMORATING 100 YEARS

We have been inspired so deeply by the efforts of Donald Campbell CBE that we felt it appropriate, and our honour, to mark the year which would have seen his 100th birthday with the release of a Centenary Edition watch.

We must cherish the legacy that we create, and celebrate those legacies which resonate with us.

NEVER BEFORE SEEN

Included with the Centenary Edition are 6 never-before-seen photographs of Donald Campbell - supplied by Simon Willies, son of Ronald (pictured far right) who worked for Girling Brakes and was part of the support team in Australia for Donald’s land speed record in 1964 on the flats of Lake Eyre.

Having only previously featured in the Willies family collection, we're delighted to share these incredible, historic, never before seen photographs with 100 lucky customers. 

LIMITED EDITION

To mark what would have been Donald's 100th year, we have created 100 sequentially numbered Centenary Edition watches, one of the shortest production runs we've ever worked on. Proceeds from the sale of every watch will be donated to the Campbell Family Heritage Trust, to help maintain and celebrate the history and legacy of the Campbell family, all that they achieved, in addition to the various vehicles they used to pursue their hunger for speed. 

An elegant time piece that is already being talked about as a new family heirloom.
