Founded in 2005 by Mike France, Peter Ellis, and Christopher Ward, they started the world's first online-only watch brand. July 2nd, 2014 saw the announcement to a genuinely astonished watch industry their own in-house movement, Calibre SH21, the first commercially viable mechanical movement from a British watch brand in over 50 years.

Baton hands with a sweeping center second covered with the same Old Radium SuperLuminova. The distinctive Trident counterbalance completes the minimalist dial. The text is contemporary and uncluttered. On the reverse, a screw-down case back with the Trident motif embossed in the center. Inside an Automatic Sellita SW-200, 26 jewels, 28,800 beats per hour. A robust and reliable movement. The watch comes fitted on a 20mm Christopher Ward rubber strap and an additional Italian Vintage oak leather strap with a matching signed buckle.

I had never seen this model before this one landed on my desk, what an incredible timepiece at a super fair price! The overall look is super stealth which was CW's aim I suspect, but pair it on the brown leather provided and it turns it into a completely different watch.
