CANFORD: 202-003-L08


A real classic, so easy to wear every day with understated elegance. Metallic grooved dial with high contrast detailing and bright SuperLuminova makes it a joy to use.

Full Description

Matt brown 'pull-up' leather tones perfectly with the metallic ivory textured dial and dark chrome hour markers and hands.  A red-tipped seconds hand adds a subtle pop of colour inside the precision brushed stainless steel case. The exquisite colour palette on this '003 grows on you with an easy going warmth that's easy to wear with just about anything. A timeless, classy combination. If you can't decide which Canford to choose, choose this one.

The premium leather strap is produced in small batches and over time, the matt, waxy nap will develop into a smooth, darker sheen like an old leather belt. The straps are shaped to fit upto the case seamlessly, with a single-fold brushed deployant buckle that, once adjusted to your size, clicks closed to the right size every time, with our luminous shield machined into it.

We design and re-design every component to make watches that are fundamentally fit-for-purpose, minimising or eliminating typical points of failure such as spring bars breaking, straps snapping, or watches leaking - all potentially catastrophic failures.

Any watches damaged in service can be repaired quickly and economically at our in-house workshop in Poole and returned to service with the minimum of disruption.

Not only is our servicing world class, the warranty has no small print. It’s honest, comprehensive, and straightforward. The whole watch is covered for 5 years, not just the movement. The only exclusions are accidental damage, the battery and wear & tear.
