Inspiration

Overview

At first glance, this doesn’t immediately look like a Schofield; the dial is white for starters, there’s a date window and the whole thing has a touch of the Bauhaus about it. It’s not a coincidence that this watch looks and feels like a departure for Schofield because, rather than the wilds of the Sussex coastline, this time founder Giles Ellis looked to the deep fjords and snowscapes of Norway for inspiration.

It wasn’t just the country that influenced this watch, but rather the Kirk Douglas and Richard Harris film The Heroes of Telemark, which tells the story of the Norwegian resistance attempting to stop the German efforts to produce an atomic bomb component in WWII.

The asymmetric layout, with the date between four and five, is a reference to the watch Kirk Douglas wears in the film, while the graphic that resembles a naval contact mine, is a modification for the Unicode symbol for a lighthouse. The dial itself is known as a submarine dial meaning it can be read in low light. Reassuringly it retains the sizeable case and ETA 2824 powerhouse that have become Schofield signatures.

Just team it with a chunky roll-neck and peacoat to really play up the naval aesthetic.

Inspiration

Rather than the seas of Sussex, this is a watch inspired by the fjords and snow of Norway, the setting for the WWII film The Heroes of Telemark, from which this watch gets its design codes.
