Piccadilly, London and their manufacturing workshops in Birmingham's historic Jewellery Quarter. Struthers are also based in the Jewellery Quarter, which is where this collaboration began. The enamel sector dial was produced by D&K for the Struthers Kingsley watch - a model from their 'Taylor Made' range and rather than being produced in silver, this one has been made from white gold. This is the first time I have seen this watch in the flesh and I found it a very compelling model. The enamel dial has been executed to a very high standard (as you would expect) and the recommissioned manual wind Omega movement has been finished with a beautiful traditional hand engraved acanthus leaf scrolling.


Sincere apologies for the photographs - It was difficult to capture under the light conditions and they really don't do the watch justice !









The dial below was apparently a failed attempt that didn't go according to plan - but I said that they should really try to re-produce it ! It had a wonderful toffee / tropical translucent hue:  







The D&K along side a customer very nice Silver version with Blue Mk11 Dial 




The case is 38 mm .HAGWE Everyone ! Best Wishes, Will
