I am pleased to announce that we are going ahead with a new watch for release later this year. As you will see, this is what many would term a ‘field watch’ and as such it has been designed and specified for everyday wear, requiring little intervention from the wearer.  We wanted this one to be rugged, accurate and reliable.
 
The Newmark 52 features an asymmetric case, sapphire crystal and 100m water resistance.  Three versions will be available which will hopefully suit all tastes: velvet black dial with white hands and markers, gloss black gilt relief dial with gilt hands and matt ivory dial with heat blued hands.  Given the intended use of this watch then we have opted to use a quartz movement, albeit with a little difference (4 beats per second central seconds hand) which will give the watch a vintage feel but with quartz accuracy.
 
The ’52’ moniker comes from two things – the original Newmark company produced a series of watches in 1952 which were marked as ’52’ on the dial and of course, the dial of this watch is very much of that era.
 
Each version will come on a military style strap, the final design as yet to be confirmed.
 
Given the uncertainties that the current situation has created then it is difficult to give an exact retail price for the Newmark 52, suffice it to say I can guarantee that it will be less than £200 shipped worldwide.
 
We are hoping to be able to make the Newmark 52 available during October 2020. Development and production is now underway.

The website has been rehashed a little as you will see and we have updates on the following products:

Chronographs

The 6BB, HS and NP Panda Chronos are all available on the site. The 6BB and HS now come with one strap – the 6BB with the Admiralty Grey NATO and the HS with the leather backed Cordura NATO.

The price of all three chronographs is now £279.00 shipped worldwide. When buying more than one chronograph a 5% discount will automatically be applied.

Newmark 71

Our remainder stock of the 71 is now available for purchase. As you will see from the gallery and item pages, due to the low numbers available (in one case just one watch) then it is impractical to use the shopping cart system.  There is however a form to use for enquiries which automatically tells us which model you are interested in. We will respond ASAP and can send you a PayPal invoice for purchase.

The watches on offer can be found here:

Newmark 71

21 March 2020

The Newmark Panda has been made available earlier than anticipated given the current health situation worldwide.  It can be found here: Newmark Panda

Other news concerns the Newmark 71.  Kickstarter watches have shipped and we’re working on putting remainder stock online.  The graphic below shows the variations that will be available with the numbers in brackets indicating quantities of each model.
