"Sometimes a split second of time can be gained at the cost of a chance" - words spoken by Sir Malcom Campbell; a seeker of speed, of thrills and records, of chasing and capturing glory that previously seemed just out of reach. The Coniston is inspired by its namesake lake, where Sir Malcolm Campbell set a world water-speed record.
“An elegant time piece that is already being talked about as a new family heirloom.”
“From the moment of opening the box right through to seeing it on his wrist, the experience could not have been better.”
“Bought for my husband. He loves it! Looks very expensive. Great attention to detail.”
Taking its colour scheme from Malcolm's boat, the Speed Edition is a nod to the unwavering spirit that he displayed throughout his life. With a red-tipped second hand echoing the splash of red in both the Union Jack and Swiss flags that adorned the K3, the Speed Edition immediately catches the eye. The pale blue dial, set within its iconic Blue Bird blue outer ring, makes it clear that the Speed Edition is a close relative of the Coniston Bluebird; just as Malcolm was the father of Donald, the Coniston Speed Edition shares a very special connection with the Coniston Bluebird.
The inifinity symbol on the dial of the Speed Edition replicates the same symbol which appeared on the badge of the K3; a mark of the hydroplane’s official status as a water speed record competitor, and of their unlimited and infinite power. The infinity symbol holds a special meaning in the case of the Campbell family; the lives of both Campbell father and son, infinitely bound together in their pursuit of speed.
The case of the Coniston measures 40mm in diameter, a comfortable size for most wrists, and features 20mm lugs - a classic sizing combination. To the peak of the domed crystal the watch has a depth of 11mm, whilst the 46.5mm lug-to-lug sizing complements the case perfectly.
