Lomond Chronoscope - Vintage Coffee (Pre-Order)

  • Pre-Order - To Be Delivered October/November 2017

    Striking. Different. The Vintage Coffee has a luscious deep brown, almost black dial colour. In one light it appears a glossy inky black, helped with the reflection from the crystal. In another light and angle it's a flat espresso brown. The main printed markings are a combination of vintage cream with red and white accents; polished hour blocks match the polished hands. The sub-dials feature a turned brass aesthetic complementing the markings, with a vintage cream Chronoscope hand completing the look.

    The case is polished to a mirror shine, with matching crown and pushers. The Vintage cases feature a polished black ceramic bezel with a 60 second gradation scale engraved and paint-filled white. The Vintage Coffee is fitted with a black leather strap, contrasting white stitching and brass rivets to compliment the sub-dials.

     



STRIKINGLY UNIQUE. REASSURINGLY FAMILIAR.

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.


GATEWAY TO THE HIGHLANDS

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.
