Derwent - A Test

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.

The Classic dial is paired to a polished steel case and hand set. The dial is finished with a pearlescent granular paint to catch the light and bring a shimmering quality. The Classic also features a naturally tanned, black calf-skin leather strap with red accents and a Marloe engraved buckle.

The Beating Heart

We use hand-wound mechanical movements in all of our timepieces. The beating heart of the Derwent is the harmonious Miyota 6T33, which was selected not only for its reliability, but also for it's incredibly accurate time keeping. 

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.

Surrounding the port hole window is a sunburst radial pattern which is a nod to the Japanese machine whirling from within. 

A Nod to Tradition

The Derwent is a watch 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.

The Devil's In The Detail

Inspired by our original Cherwell box, we've designed a single tier box especially for the Derwent. The box, made from 3mm cardboard and wrapped in lovely Fedrigoni paper, contains a single draw with its own precision-milled dense foam cavity to hold your timepiece securely in place. All of this is enveloped in the Fedrigoni clad box, imprinted with a clear foil logo and finished with a pristine band with our embossed crown icon. Inside you'll find a traditional letter-pressed insert telling you a little more about the Derwent.
