CANFORD: 202-001


Hands and numerals are the colour of blued screws used in gunsmithing. The metallic 'Bluebottle' effect is set beautifully against the circular grooved dial, designed to attract light for perfect contrast.

Strap:Blue Textured Rubber
Full Description

The first model we designed, and still a favourite – it’s our go-to watch. The uniquely polished bezel, crowns and the circular grooved dial catch the light and contrast with indices and hands the colour of blued screws used in gunsmithing. The metallic blue of the indices and hands has a lovely "bluebottle" effect. In the right lighting, this detail colour is simply stunning.

A stand-out model that shares it's unique polished bezel with the 202-001-L09. Delivered on contrasting inky dark blue leather strap with a neat single-fold deployant buckle that, once adjusted to your size, simply clicks closed to the right size every time, with our luminous shield logo machined into it.

The Canford wears much smaller than it's 44mm diameter would suggest. We only create watches for hassle free every day use even on smaller wrist sizes.

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.
