A NEW WATCH FOR 2024!
Schofield introduces a general purpose field watch. After 15 years making watches with the same case shape and dimensions, the Light brings a whole re-design, from the ground up. At 40 mm diameter we now have a wholly new offering with no less complexity and detail as seen in other models. Lighthouses have been Schofield’s inspiration for the last 15 years and these two new watches reflect their austerity, endurance and precision. Built for legibility and reliability – a functional watch with subtle military cues. Powered by an automatic, mechanical Seiko movement with 24hr GMT. The Light comes in two colours, aptly named The Light One and The Dark One. Both limited to 150 pieces.TO THE LIGHT
Sometime (the podcast) is about time, actually it isn’t, well, not obviously so, which is why it’s called Sometime, because it relates to time, some of the time. It will fight against being pigeon-holed, but if pressed, it is about my life in watches which is science, technology, engineering, design, manufacture, business, family, health and other people. It is one of those quiet places with a glass of something proper type things.
Told as stories that last no longer than 20 mins in a slowed down, reflecting vibe which is in stark contrast to my generally maniacal working day. I need this, maybe you do too…
A journalist once described Schofield as a disruptive luxury brand. Disruptive because we are outsiders, not following trends and fashions, but having a hand in making them. Every watch, strap, buckle and box has a story behind its details, all of which are realised by thinking.

…It’s a well-known fact among the watchmaking community that I’m a Schofield fan-boy. Despite this consistent fandom, I always do my best to take a step back from the novelty in question and ask myself how I would feel if I were coming to this brand cold?
My relationship with Schofield started when I was at the British School of Watchmaking. Giles Ellis, the brand’s founder, had blazed a trail I wanted to follow. As such, my connection to the brand is very emotional and knotted up with my own personal history. Putting that to one side as best as I can, however, I can say right off the bat that I think the latest addition to the Beater family might just be the brand’s best yet. And here’s why…FRATELLO MAGAZINE
British watches for those that like a story. Much of what we make is rare by the very nature of being a small company. But within all our limited editions are the Rare Things, watches limited to fewer than 5 pieces. Some of these watches sell very quickly, never making it to these pages and some only make it as far as the Buoys Club, a secret page specifically for existing Schofield watch owners.

Winner in Product Design
The Small Wall Clock is only 16 cms in diameter allowing it to be discreet, tucked in a corner, not loud and dominating. The dials are available in three metallic colours with plain and simple numerals, designed for clarity at distance and modelled on old AEG factory clocks. The hands are plain baton style with the luminescence only found in the counterpoise of the seconds hand. The case shape is like our watches but milled from solid aluminium billet with a fancy, over engineered case back mechanism.SEE THE SMALL WALL CLOCK
