The Watch

Here we have an early 2017 Schofield Beater 1 Grey Enamel Dial Automatic that has a 45mm bead-blasted stainless steel case, its hand-finished industrial design adds character and uniqueness to the watch, sloping wide screw-in lugs with a lug-to-lug length of 52.5mm and a thickness of 14mm give the watch a unique wrist presence. On the right side, is a deeply knurled crown, a smooth bezel holds a flat sapphire crystal AR coated above the Grey Enamel dial, and Super-LumiNova coated numerals at 12, 3, 6, and 9 with dagger indexes in between marking the hours. An inner minute track is clearly printed, the centre cap has a small indicator which Schofield calls “Sign-of-Life” second hand and sword hands filled in SuperLumiNova. At 12 o’clock the Schofield motif and at 6 o’clock a red “B” Beater. On the reverse, a screw-down exhibition case back, inside an automatic NOS Synchron ETA movement. The watch comes fitted with its 24mm Schofield strap with a signed buckle and also comes with its Schofield presentation box and papers.


Personal Note

I have been fortunate to have sold many Schofields over the years, and now even own the new "Light One" the brand recently released, but this early Beater 1 featuring a wonderful Grey Enamel dial is up there with my favourites! The brand does not shy away from its big and bold design, that is personally what I love about the brand and I would say that if you have the wrist size to support a watch like this book an appointment to come and try it on as you may find yourself loving it too!


The Brand

Giles Ellis made a grand debut of his brand Schofield at the Salon QP event held in London back in 2011. The brand's headquarters are located in Sussex, which is a picturesque county situated on the south coast of the UK, just a short distance from Brighton. Ellis, a visionary watchmaker, has been instrumental in the revival of British watchmaking, which has gained significant momentum in recent years. His brand, Schofield, reflects his passion for traditional craftsmanship and is highly regarded for its precision, quality, and innovative designs. In the initial models, such as the Signalman GMT PR and its DLC variant, the brand established its identity with a combination of high-quality materials, reliable Swiss movements, and a touch of British flair. The Patinated Bronze Beater B3 demonstrated the brand's willingness to explore unique materials and finishes. In 2024, after maintaining the same core case design for almost 15 years, Schofield surprised the watch world with the Light. This new model represented a significant departure, featuring a smaller 40mm case size while staying true to the brand's commitment to functionality and meticulous construction. The Light offered a fresh interpretation of the classic field watch, incorporating subtle military influences and prioritising wearability. With the introduction of the Light, Schofield indicated its intention to expand its appeal while remaining steadfast to its fundamental principles. The brand continues to innovate, utilising high-grade materials and movements to produce enduring timepieces designed to endure the test of time.
