The Newmark HS Chronograph has been introduced alongside the 6BB for those who might prefer something a little different but with a vintage military vibe. Thus, we have equipped the HS with an off white dial and black hands/markers for maximum legibility.
The HS is named after watches (notably Lemania) which were issued to the Royal Navy (notably the Fleet Air Arm) from the 1940s through to the early 1960s. The ‘HS’ refers to the Hydrographic Service, a UK Government department responsible for procurement of timepieces for the Navy at that time.
The originals featured an off white dial and distinctive single pusher chronograph layout, some models were produced for submarine service and lacked any luminous compound.
The Newmark HS dial is a very similar colour to the original and we have made sure that there is a generous amount of Super Luminova to markings and hands – it has to be said, it glows very well indeed.
As with the 6BB, the HS features a vintage domed acrylic crystal which will ages with the watch and which can be polished using something as simple as Brasso or indeed toothpaste.
Featuring the same Seiko VK64 meca quartz movement as used in its brother the 6BB, the HS combines quartz reliability with the feel of a vintage chronograph movement, right down to the 1/5 second central hand.
A true ‘grab and go’ watch which has attracted many positive comments, the Newmark HS comes complete with a Khaki leather backed Cordura strap.
