Designed in Britain and inspired by the prestigious university city of Oxford, this watch is named after the River Cherwell, which meanders through this. Within the efficiently designed case is a robust and accurate mechanical movement, whose beat is maintained by winding the bespoke crown. Our crowns are a signature element with angled grooves and a subtle taper to promote positive and quick winding. The face of the crown is concave, inverting the reflection and adding a light halo around our engraved M icon. We use hand-wound mechanical movements in all our timepieces.
The beating heart of the Cherwell is the beautiful Sea-Gull ST36, which was selected not only for its reliability, but also its delicate and eye-catching engravings that can be seen through the exhibition case-back. THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAIL. When designing the Cherwell we had several prerequisites. The first was to design something bespoke - a true from the ground up design - as few stock parts as possible.
The second was to present the time clearly and efficiently, but also dynamically. And finally the Cherwell must be beautiful and comfortable to wear, whilst also feeling great to hold in your hand. Too often, tactility is neglected when designing physical objects, especially those worn for long periods of time.
Picking up your Cherwell and winding it should feel just as good as wearing it on your wrist. The Cherwell has a simple, beautiful, and cleverly designed bespoke case - the sides are gently tapered which, when worn on the wrist, give a sleek and elegant look. The weight of the Cherwell is designed to convey a feeling of quality and strength whilst visually appearing refined.
The bezel is thin and gently angled to leave the dial feeling open. The lugs are steep and tapered, which along with the angled case sides, places the strap snug to the case to avoid unsightly gaps and comfortably secures the watch to the wrist.The window to the soul of the Cherwell demands special attention - the curve of the crystal matches the bezel angle to form an almost seamless arc over the dial. Double-domed and made from Sapphire, the crystal is piercingly clear and allows the dial to be read from any angle. To cut down on excessive reflections the crystal is treated with an anti-reflect coating.
We believe the rear of a watch should be as spectacular as the front, so the Cherwell flaunts the oscillating balance wheel with a large glass aperture. Internal engraving on the crystal can be seen only at certain angles offering an intimate flourish. Surrounding this visual spectacle is an inverse engraving with the words of renowned British author, poet and scholar, C.Lewis served on the English faculty at Oxford University and, along with close friend and fellow novelist J. Tolkien, were active in the informal Oxford literary group; the Inklings. 43.4mm diameter x 12mm high (lug tips to crystal zenith). 20mm lug width, 48mm top to toe. Hand-wound mechanical movement with 21,600bph. Power reserve of over 50 hours when fully wound. Double-domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating.
