The ES-8075 commemorates the career and travels of Captain George Vancouver. Vancouver was a British officer of the Royal Navy, best known for his 1791–95 expedition, which explored and charted North America's northwestern Pacific Coast regions, including the coasts of contemporary Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon.
Most famously the island and city of Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada is named after him. Vancouver used a famous Longcase regulator clock on board his journeys which helped him chart the Pacific Northwest for the first time between 1791 and 1795. This same regulator would also serve Captain Matthew Flinders on his epochal journey to circumnavigate and chart the Australian continent in 1801 to 1803.
The Vancouver displays the same finesse of watchmaking best attributed to the Earnshaw range but elegantly cloaks the finer details of the skeleton self-winding automatic movement through a slightly opaque translucent dial face which frames a clean baton hour index dial.
Classic breguet style hands tie the more vintage credentials of the timepiece. A signature double E logo seconds hand and skeletonized date display also complete the dial and face of this timepiece with appropriate proportion. Designed to provide a slim and modern profile, the 44 mm case is crafted out of carefully streamlined stainless steel with a hardened mineral lens. A thin top bezel allows for an expansive dial viewing area that makes for an altogether more striking impact to the observer.
This elegant timepiece is a complete fusion of modern and classic sensibilities.
The high-quality supple genuine leather strap hugs the wearers wrist to the watch with ease and comfort.
