The deep blue of the open ocean is captivating, inspirational and frightening. From icy blue to vivid aquamarine, the ocean captivates, no matter how deep or wide.

Being drawn to the sea is a feeling that some sense deep within them, a calling you might say. We feel it, which is why a lot of our watches follow a nautical theme. Blue is a calming colour - fresh, clean, rich and welcoming. It also happens to make for a beautiful watch dial.

The Devil's In The Detail

A dark marine blue throughout, the main dial features the same ‘bendy’ stripes as the Rescue dial and, again, lends an endearing textural element to the otherwise matte blue dial. Surrounding this is a machined steel ring that brings some visual sparkle to an innately brooding dial, with dark blue printed minute marks for legibility and ease of time reference.

The inner rotating chapter ring retains the same dark blue of the dial, with white printed numerals and a vivid cyan perimeter line. A luminous pip at 12 o’clock aids quick time referencing.

The minute and hour hands are fully polished with a gentle sword profile - great legibility in all lights. The hairline running seconds hand is bright white with a turquoise centre circle - a magnificent sweeping hand standing in stark contrast against the deep blue of the dial.

BENDY STRIPES

The dark marine ‘bendy’ stripes lend an endearing textural element to the matte blue dial.

BROODING

Surrounding the dial is a machined steel ring that brings some visual sparkle to an otherwise brooding dial.

Maritime Feel

Inspired by navigational dividers, the hands retain a maritime feel, with a needle point opening up to a thicker stalk that now holds luminous compound.

smörgåsbord

Owing to the multiple coatings of anti-reflection treatment on the sapphire crystal, we're treated to a smörgåsbord of blue.

Lume

The Solent Timer features proprietary lume on both the dial and hands to aid low light time referencing.

Small Batch

Our watches are produced in small batches and each watch is finished with a unique serial number.

A SKILLED SAILOR

The Timer's caseback features a chapter ring with the proverb coined by President Franklin D. Roosevelt: “A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor”

During our research, on and off the water, we spoke to many a sailor. The Timer is a testament to the unwavering precision and unrivalled style of skilled sailors, embodying their expertise and unyielding dedication to the art of navigation.

EMINENTLY WEARABLE

The case size of the Timer is a bold yet eminently wearable 42mm at bezel and, despite the additional complication of an internal mechanism for the chapter ring, remains a surprisingly slender 12mm, with a 22mm strap width.
