Mr Jones? I had a look in their shop last week. Some really weird watches, although I rather like their day/night interpretation on a moonphase.

Ebels are a lot like women that lack a lowcut dress that zips up the side..neither gets the love that they deserve..

A good 'tool' type watch with chunky design, 44mm case 200m WR, emulating the Industrial North East, where the Brand is based;-

Our first watch is inspired by Lord Armstrong - an inventor, engineer, scientist and businessman. Its design references the North’s industrial heritage with a heavy duty and rugged aesthetic - powered by a mechanical movement. The stainless steel is complimented by a leather strap and carry case suggestive of the role the beautiful and harsh landscape has played in the North’s history.

It's decently built and reasonably priced.

It has a resonance for me as I took my family summer holidays on the Northumberland Coast for many years, and visited Cragside, Lord Armstrong's home many times.

There is a simplicity to it i.e. bezel is fixed, and the grey/green colourway is unusual (again a like for me).

If you are thinking of getting one you need to be quick. I got an email a couple of days ago announcing a new Black dial version on bracelet and that the current Grey dial is no longer being produced; with only a few left in stock.

Image

Food for thought?

Lovely vintage today, the “Pidduck” Longines ca. 1966

Any particular meaning behind the "Pidduck" moniker?

Yep! Hanley is the city centre of Stoke-on-Trent, where I grew up. Henry Pidduck was the top jeweller in the city, when I was a child - very old established firm, and if you had something from Pidduck's you had definitely made the grade! I remember it like this, but sadly it closed in 1992.

On the same spot or very close there is now a modern building housing a very tawdry branch of Goldsmiths that doesn't seem to stock any of the big Swiss brands.

So, the Longines came up on Black Bough about 7 years ago, and I went for it. It's a 33mm watch in 18k gold with a beautiful hand wound movement. I had to have it.

Since my mother passed away in 2017 I haven't really been back to the area, so it's nice to keep the odd connexion.

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.
