£175.00 Including Worldwide Shipping

Our ‘field’ watch for 2020 – the Newmark 52. Simple, reliable and rugged. No gimmicks, down to earth.

The Newmark 52 owes its distinctive design (both case and dial) to military watches dating back to the 1950s, but has been brought up to date with a modern quartz movement and a durable sapphire crystal.

With its 100m of water resistance, the Newmark 52 is a true ‘go anywhere’ watch with inbuilt accuracy and reliability – requiring little, if any intervention. You don’t need to wind it, you don’t need to set the date – just wear it and admire it!

The velvet black dial of this version is designed for ultimate legibility; with the anti-reflective sapphire crystal and matt white hands you will have no trouble reading the time day or night.

Talking of night, then we have used Super Luminova X1-C3 luminous compound all round, ensuring a bright and long lasting glow.

The Newmark 52 is equipped with the relatively new Seiko VH31 – whilst this movement is quartz, it is designed to ‘tick’ four times per second, reminiscent of watches of old and very appropriate for this design. The visual aesthetics of a mechanical watch with the accuracy and reliability of quartz – perfect for those who don’t want the worry that can come with mechanical movements.

This version comes as standard on our high quality single pass military style strap in Admiralty Grey. Of course, the standard lug width of 20mm and removable spring bars mean that the world is your oyster when it comes to fitting different straps or bracelets.
