Why choose a Black Watch?

Acting as an extension of the traditional elegantly British ensemble of a suit and tie, it is essential that the correct kind of watch is selected so as not to mismatch. A classic black timepiece works incredibly well on a man’s wrist as it suits all occasions all the while maintaining an understated look.

The sleek black colour of our watches is attained by using the black physical vapour deposition (PVD) technique, which consists of bonding compound metal vapour to form a thin black layer on the entire exterior of the watch. Other than giving the piece a flawless finish, it also renders the watch almost impossible to scratch or wear, ensuring that – over the years - it maintains that same pristine appearance it had on the day it left the watchmaker’s bench.
