The Devil's In The Detail
Like the other Black Edition designs the Sceptre edition features a matte black dial, chapter ring and hands. The faded gold printing on the dial, chapter ring and case-back pop in the darkness, with the glossy white of the hand tips and luminous pontoons giving the clarity specs a massive boost. This is an incredibly easy to read dial design.
There’s something wonderful about the combo of black dials and blue AR coated crystals, and with the Black Edition we get a wonderful taste of the spectrum of deep water colour. When the light catches just right, we're treated to a visual trick of the eye: a vivid blue flash, a blue to black gradient and a strip of jet black on the dial surface. You could say this one is our favourite, but that would be unfair to the others.

The rifled grip on the bezel gives a subtle nod to our beloved Morar, but takes on an altogether more aggressive stance - looking similar to a turbine inside a nuclear submarine.
The case is a polished chassis with the bezel featuring blasted recesses on the grip and a radial brushed finish to the top surface. Stainless steel 316L, a marine grade steel, is used to prevent rusting when exposed to the salty atmospheres of coastal operations.
Behind the exhibition caseback lies the engineering marvel that is the Miyota 9039. This automatic calibre beats at 28,800 bph and offers a power reserve of 40+ hours.
The Sceptre features proprietary lume on both the dial and hands to aid low light time referencing.
Our watches are produced in small batches and each watch is finished with a unique serial number.
“I own too many watches (my wife's opinion, not mine) but the Sceptre Black Edition caught my eye and its simple design appealed to me, so I ordered one and I'm totally impressed with this watch.”
“I saw the Scepre Black Edition and was sold immediately. It's design is in that sweet spot - a unique piece but not flashy. It's undeniably a must for anyone looking for a first mechanical watch.”
“It's not often that my expectations are exceeded when buying a watch online, but the Sceptre Black Edition is one of those rare cases. The finish is excellent and on par with watches double the price.”
The world under the waves is not a place for the light of heart - it’s a dangerous place, obviously, but formidable, challenging, changing and complicated too. Whilst the Solent range was designed to be worn whilst carving through the surf above, the Sceptre has built upon this framework to deliver a watch more capable of surviving in the depths.
ROBUST & CAPABLE
The Sceptre is the next watch from the Solent DNA stable. Featuring the same architecture but building upon that unique foundation, the Sceptre is the natural progression of the range; more robust, more capable and more striking - the Sceptre is an aggressive ocean-faring watch that’s built for the harshest environments.
The case of the Sceptre is aggression and strength personified. Reaching 42mm in diameter by 12.65mm tall, it's perfectly sized to have bold wrist presence but wear neatly too. The case has a polished chassis showcasing the rugged aesthetics of the Sceptre design.
