Westminster Stephenson Skeleton Mechanical This timepiece takes its name from George Stephenson (1781-1848) who was a pioneering railway engineer and inventor of the 'Rocket', the most famous early railway locomotive. The watch features a mechanical handwinding skeleton movement which is perhaps the truest form of orignal watchmaking when the wind up of the timepiece was necessary to keep good timing condition for the wearer. With a guilloche finished outer dial, the inner dial is exposed and overlayed wth a wheel construction rotating as the seconds display. Matching hour and minute indicators, blued screws and the inner workings of the mechanical movement create a Victorian inspired Industrial design with the Roman Hour indexes each individually brushed and hand applied – that is still effortless to read from, while still being utterly unique and compelling to view.
Thomas Earnshaw is revered as a legend and pioneer in the field of Horology. Born in Manchester, England in 1749, he was celebrated for his work in refining, and improving upon the Marine Chronometers of the era. It was those Marine Chronometers, crucial to the journeys taken by the boats in the Royal Navy as they circled the globe during a golden era in English history of science and exploration.
Very nice gift. It was well received and wore immediately. Blends and match very well with a handsome and formal attire. A+
