Obscura naughtiness No. 483

We have a secret, just we three,
The robin, and I, and the sweet cherry-tree;
The bird told the tree, and the tree told me,
And nobody knows it but just us three.
But of course the robin knows it best,
Because she built the—I shan’t tell the rest;
And laid the four little—something in it—
I’m afraid I shall tell it every minute.
But if the tree and the robin don’t peep,
I’ll try my best the secret to keep;
Though I know when the little birds fly about
Then the whole secret will be out.
The Secret – Anonymous

Evening all. The Obscura is less obscure every day… So tonight let’s look at the crown. The manufactured ones are blurred out in the background because I am not ready to give you the real thing! It is oversized like all Schofield crowns, PVD black with double O rings. It is the screw down type, has fine knurling and our nail groove, it has multiple steps and different finishes but the real fun is with the red/pink Super-LumiNova fill in the engraved front face. A glowing dot under your cuff, a concept we introduced with the Blacklamp.

All the Obscura updates can be found on the Buoys Club, and now Undercurrents


Not all Schofield club members and enthusiasts are middle aged men. No sir! Miss G aged 12 has been a keen Schofield Belle for half her life collecting the less expensive paraphernalia which is no less valuable to her than the watches are to her parents! I say, ‘stay fresh with a glitter sticker!’.



Oi! Oi! What’s this actual proper treasure! It is a new range of straps affectionally known as the Quality Street Straps or officially QSS. I am showing you a week before they go live on our website because they are just so cool. The leather is tanned in the UK, metallic and shiny, certainly Christmassy!  If there was a way of elevating Schofield’s strap game any higher, this is it!



I shouldn’t have, but could not resist…



Keeping shop. A note to say that from December 2nd most of our watches will increase in price. All orders taken prior to that date will be honoured at current prices irrelevant of delivery dates. You all know how much I hate doing this; prices have not been adjusted for many years but my accountant is cross so I can delay no longer. On the upside we may be offering Klarna, though I am still deciding if that is actually good for anyone 😉
