Our foremost timepiece, the Cherwell, is inspired by the prestigious university city of Oxford and takes its name from the River Cherwell which meanders through this City of Dreaming Spires.
Surrounding the exhibition case-back 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.
The Cherwell is a mechanical machine, worn on the wrist, powered by you, to display the passing of time - a feat of such engineering marvel that we believe should be celebrated.
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.
