The Daymark

The Daymark


The Daymark is an automatic watch with the same case dimensions as our classic Signalman but has been made from one piece of vapour-blasted stainless steel. The crown is a pull-out type and in the gallery below you can see a nail notch milled into the case. There is also a deep groove running around the circumference of the crown. These two details make it easy to pull the crown out. This groove also indicates the ‘affordance’, the action required of the crown, teeth to show rotation and the groove to show pulling in and out.

Powered by a Swiss automatic, ETA 2824. The watch is a 3-hander, hours, minutes and seconds. The case has a 44mm diameter with an exhibition case back. The price shown is with UK VAT, if you are outside of Europe then VAT will be deducted at the checkout.

More information

The Daymark is a hollow octagonal tower of limestone built in 1864 by the Dartmouth Harbour Commissioners. At 80 feet high it is an Aid to Navigation (the first name of the watch that would become the Signalman) to help mariners find entrance to the River Dart. The Daymark is essentially a lighthouse without a light! A perfect name for our automatic watch. The place itself is beautiful, high on the headland above Kingswear, a bleak landscape devoid of trees with this menacing black tower which looks as if it has its fingers in the earth, anchoring it in harsh weather.

Size guide

Schofield watch straps are available in two sizes; regular and long.

Medium/average wrists are covered with both sizes.

The regular sized watch straps are 110mm on the non buckle side and 75 on the buckle side. The long straps are 115mm on the non buckle side and 90mm on the buckle side.

If your wrists are less than 19cm (7.5 inches) in circumference then we suggest you choose a regular length strap. If your wrists are more than 19cm (7.5 inches) in circumference then we suggest a long strap. If your wrists are approximately 19cm in circumference then a longer strap will give more of a tail; most guys opt for a regular sized watch strap with a shorter tail.

Watch care

A note on the Daymark characteristics and care: The stainless steel case will mark and scratch over time, especially around the square edge bezel. This is normal and expected. Please visit our servicing page for more information.
