We have taken this original 1920’s British brass firefighter’s helmet and melted it down into our watch crowns. The result, as you will see in the image below is a wonderful combination of old vintage brass versus new modern stainless steel. The helmets are all sourced from the UK and all craftsmanship to perfect this skilled work is carried out in the heart of London.
We are very proud of the fact that we have created our very own William Wood straps made from cast off Angus Duraline British fire hose that has served and protected the UK Fire & Rescue Service for over 10 years.
Our 12pm indices represents the two collar markings on the lapel of a UK Fire & Rescue Service Crew Manager. The chequered markings around the outside of the dial mirror the markings from the side of a British fire engine. Our seconds hand takes inspiration from the chime of a vintage fire bell. And we have tinted the double domed sapphire crystal glass blue as a tribute to our founder's grandfather's service on the Blue Watch.
