Strange Lights ✦ NQR

This limited edition titanium watch is the lightest Schofield has ever made at 85 grams strapped. It comes in two colours; not quite red and not quite green, a little off, strange. Port and starboard navigation lights, on the sea or in the sky. Distant.

A titanium watch is very comfortable, you don’t know you are wearing it! It comes on any strap you like, although we favour grey. The buckle is brushed steel to match the crown.

Two striking limited edition watches designed for comfortable, everyday wear in the highly recognisable Schofield case. With legible dials devoid of any unnecessary ornament.

The case back engraving shows a 1950s style UFO hovering above Smeaton’s Tower, a lighthouse that represents Great British engineering and innovation. It also featured on Schofield’s first watch the Signalman, followed by many others over the last decade. The limited edition Strange Lights traces that journey. It is a loud and confident celebration of 10 years in watchmaking.

Schofield manufactures and finishes all the titanium watch cases right here in the UK. Whilst we have made titanium cases before never with a Ti case back and aluminium movement holder. It is only 85 grams strapped making it arguably the most comfortable in Schofield’s history. There is an engraving of SWC SL-1 (Schofield Watch Company Strange Lights 1) on the side of the case. 

This aesthetic matches with P-2 , our fountain pen and the Small Wall Clock. 

An elaborate and deep laser engraving on the case back says it all with a retro UFO beaming a light over Smeaton’s Tower lighthouse, so many lights in a strange combination. The crown has been lauded as one of the finest made. It is an intricate wonder. featuring a gold-plated nail groove that matches the hands. The crown is finished both matt and polished surfaces with a unicode symbol for a lighthouse engraved into the face. 

We use a double-domed, chamfered sapphire crystal. Featuring a new technology anti-reflection coating, applied in nine layers. Applied to the top surface is a special oleophobic, DLC coating anti-reflective coating, making them scratch resistant and lens-like, a typical Schofield aesthetic.


This titanium watch is classic Schofield in the layout, open and uncluttered designed for legibility. Hours at cardinal points including a slash-0 at 12. Darts between the numbers and a minute track bordering precisely the stepped level and colour change in the dial.

The Strange Lights is a limited edition full titanium watch with only 29 made in Not Quite Red dial colour and 29 Not Quite Green

We commissioned custom Super-LumiNova for these dials, a coloured pigment that matches the dials yet emits green. Most obvious in the printed ring around the outer circumference of the dial akin to the Blacklamp. Red for the red dial, green for the green. The hue of both designed specifically for the tone of the titanium watch cases.

The new hand set features a play on the original Sign-of-Life hand found on some Beater models. Here it is a counter poise only, indicating time is passing but without the need for to the second time-telling. 

Brushed gold hands match the inner gold ring in the crown. Pertinent to this watch is the luminescence of the second hand and the central cap, so that in the dark it looks like orbiting bodies. More Strange Lights. 

The movement is the ubiquitous stalwart of quality and reliability the ETA 2824-2. This time gold-plated and highly finished, it has a retro feel in this much rarer variant. You cannot see it behind the solid case back – but it’s there.
