The Signalman takes its inspiration from the great British lighthouses of the 18th and 19th centuries. The shape and circular engraving on the crown, the domed sapphire crystal set below the lip of the bezel, the buttress style lugs and the large chamfer in the case body all reflect the design of Fresnel lenses, which magnify and focus light, allowing lighthouses to be visible over great distances. The case back features an engraving of Smeaton’s Tower on the Eddystone Rocks, the third lighthouse to occupy this hostile reef, as a testament to strength, longevity and precision of engineering.
The Signalman is powered by an Automatic Swiss Soprod 9335 movement. Beautifully decorated with perlage and ray graining, rhodium plated with blued screws. Complications include a power reserve with indicator at 12 o‘clock and a GMT display at 6 o’clock and a small date window at 3 o’clock.
The watch case that defines the Signalman is a four part outer assembly, machined to tolerances not exceeding 0.1mm. This, along with the double gasket screw-in crown, give the Signalman its unique shape and makes the watch water resistant to 500 metres.
The Signalman comes on a sharkskin strap, packaged in an English made cherry wood box. Third party links and reviews for the Signalman below.Watch Anish Watch Report video Prodigal Guide Talking Hands Prodigal Guide review Watch Report review Cool Hunting
A note on the Signalman characteristics and care: The stainless steel case will mark and scratch over time, especially around the square edge bezel. This is normal and expected. Steel watches are easy to re-polish and we can do this at any time. Please visit our servicing page for more information. The sharkskin strap is tough and durable although it does not like boiling water, you can polish with your neutral shoe-shine.
