The Canford Range

The Canford typifies our watch making DNA perfectly. It’s quietly handsome, for those who don't want their watch to shout too loudly with the elegance of a classic pilot's watch. It's the sort of watch you need never take off, no matter how tough the conditions or how smart the suit.



 

Classic understated champagne metallic cream dials with subtle blue metallic hands contrast with matt gunmetal cases and ultra clear indexes inspired by military instrumentation. Case finishes include brushed black, matt bead-blasted gun-metal, or brushed and polished stainless steel.  All 22mm straps are an easy fit for personal customisation.

The Canford's Swiss-made movement has a three year battery life and is secured inside a unique shock-absorbing steel movement housing. The 44mm case wears much smaller than it’s dimensions would have you think and is machined from solid 316L marine grade stainless steel which develops a gorgeous patina over time.

Domed and hardened anti-reflective mineral or sapphire* crystal provide long life expectancy and clear vision in all lighting conditions.


 

 

The dial, hands and bezel are all flooded with long-lasting Superluminova detailing for outstanding legibility in all light conditions. The internal rotating bezel is operated by the upper crown and is damped for a silent, glass-smooth action. Special edition models are fitted with a professional spec locking crown and timing bezel.


 

 

Both crowns are fitted with triple seals to block moisture even when the crown is extended while aggressive knurling gives secure grip even with gloved fingers. The ‘compressor’ case back is bolted down, not threaded, because it's the best combination of precisely orientating the shock-absorbing movement housing inside the case, keeping the case back straight and giving the best sealing performance.
