Tucked away in the Jura Mountains of Switzerland, 1,000km above sea level, is the world's epicentre of luxury watchmaking, also known as Watch Valley. It is home to the elite Swiss watch manufacturers and where we chose to build our spectacular new Triumph Collection.
Our Triumph Collection sub dials take inspiration from the dashboard gauges within a fire engine cockpit. Reminiscent of pressure pumps, the sub hands are finished in red, blue or gold to match the main chronograph hand, shaped in the style of a vintage fire bell chime.
The chronograph hand and 30 minute sub dial is operated by the antique brass finish buttons located on the side of the case.
As well as launching our new Triumph Collection, we are also pleased to announce our new William Wood Watches Heritage Cufflinks. Made from antique brass these beautiful cufflinks are inspired by our iconic helmet logo and have the perfect home in our Triumph Collection fire alarm presentation box, equipped with a cufflinks compartment.
We have really pushed the boundaries this time with a genuine Italian leather watch presentation box inspired by a fire alarm. This unboxing will set your mind alight.
The box has two levels, the first can carry up to 3 watches neatly wrapped on individual cushions. The second level, accessed by pulling the emergency cord, houses a cufflinks box, straps box and certificate library for your new timepiece.
SWISS SELLITA SW510
Sellita is a leading Swiss manufacturer of mechanical watch movements based in La Chaux-de-Fonds. Founded in 1950, Sellita has quickly become one of the leading producers of Swiss precision movements around the world.
The SW510 chronograph movement has a push button stopwatch, 60 second sub dial (9pm), 30 minute sub dial (3pm) and date window (6pm). The movement is 30mm in diameter, has an impressive power-reserve of 48 hours, and an exceptional accuracy with 27 jewelled bearings.
We have created a one of kind custom-made fire alarm case back. With our Sellita SW510 movement residing inside as the fire alarm, and a glass partition between the emergency plate 'In case of fire break glass'. This really is one of our proudest inventions yet and an iconic statement aligned to the heritage of William Wood Watches.
LIGHT IN THE DARKEST HOUR
We have enhanced our Super-LumiNova this time lighting up our sub dials, hands, indices and bezel pip. The result is a magnificent looking dial both in day and night.
Forged from an original 1920's British brass firefighters helmet are our Triumph Collection crowns embossed with our iconic helmet logo. We have coupled them up with our antique brass finish chronograph case buttons. This range really takes you one step closer to British firefighting history.
Our Triumph Collection comes coupled with our iconic line of upcycled British fire hose straps which have served and protected the UK Fire & Rescue Service in live fires for over 10 years. You can still smell the rich smokiness within the rubber.
Available in London Fire Brigade Red, West Midlands Fire Service Yellow, Tyne & Wear Fire Service Blue and British Armed Forces Fire Unit Green.
