Dezeen Watch Store: the 250 Series, the latest design by best-selling British watch brand Uniform Wares, is now available at Dezeen Watch Store.
Similar to the recent 150 Series, the 250 series has been designed with the features of a classic gentlemen’s dress watch.
Detailing on the watch includes raised hour markers from the casing, textured hand dials as well as a chamfered chapter ring adding depth to the face.
It is available in a collection of three finishes new to the Uniform Wares collection; a satin gold case with a tanned black leather strap, a fine satin brushed case with a walnut brown tanned leather strap, and a matt gun metal grey case with a taupe strap.
The leather strap is sourced from Italian and British tanneries and the watch mechanism is a Swiss made ETA movement.
Dezeen Watch Store is a carefully curated online store specialising in watches by named designers and boutique brands.
Here are some more details from Uniform Wares:
250 Series wristwatch
Uniform Wares continues its growth apace with the launch of its latest collection, the 250 Series.
Taking inspiration from the simple, legible elegance of post-WWII gentlemen’s wristwatches, the 250 Series includes classic design details such as applied hour markers and textured dials, as well as contemporary touches such as baton-style hands, a chamfered chapter ring and a 39mm case resulting in a modern dress watch that is extremely wearable and very much in keeping with Uniform Wares’ streamlined aesthetic.
Following on from the launch of the 150 Series in June, the British-designed 250 Series continues the brand’s reinterpretation of classic detailing for a contemporary audience.
The piece was conceived as a reinterpretation of a classic dress watch. We wanted to scale up the case and lift dial details to improve legibility and enhance the presence of the watch on the wrist.
Textures and colours have been chosen carefully to soften the contemporary contours of the case.
Each watch in the series has scratch-resistant sapphire glass for improved clarity, Swiss ETA movement and a matt-textured, buttery soft strap in oiled calf leather.
