Latest from Winton Watch Company, say hello to the Rawlins model;
Inspired by diving medicine pioneer Sir John Rawlins, The Winton Watch Company’s latest watch is equally at home under the sea as in the boardroom. Hand assembled in Switzerland and water resistant to 200m, with sapphire glass, it will take pretty much anything you care to throw at it.
With a blue dial, the timeless design features applied markers and large ‘paddle’ pointers, making it easy to tell the time at a glance, and high luminescence means you can read it no matter what the conditions – whether diving wrecks or flagging a cab in the city.
The Rawlins includes a rotating bezel – a feature introduced in the early 1950s to track a diver’s bottom time, or time spent underwater. The bezel can also act as a reminder to prevent divers from exceeding their diving time limit – and features a 15 minute ‘red zone’.
It’s sister watch, the Walker, has a black face and is inspired by William Walker, a diver who saved Winchester Cathedral.
Price is £585 by the way.
