This timepiece takes its name from George Stephenson (1781-1848) who was a pioneering railway engineer and inventor of the 'Rocket', the most famous early railway locomotive.
The watch features a mechanical hand-winding skeleton movement which is perhaps the truest form of original watchmaking when the wind up of the timepiece was necessary to keep good timing condition for the wearer.
With a guilloche finished outer dial, the inner dial is exposed and overlaid with a wheel construction rotating as the seconds display. Matching hour and minute indicators, blued screws and the inner workings of the mechanical movement create a Victorian inspired Industrial design with the Roman Hour indexes each individually brushed and hand applied – that is still effortless to read from, while still being utterly unique and compelling to view.
