The Industrial Revolution of the 18th - 19th centuries became a landmark event in the life of society and led to industrialization. It was accompanied by urbanization of the population, rapid economic growth and an increase in the quality of life. This period of history was filled with a lot of new discoveries and bold decisions that inspired us to create the L&MR collection.
The concept was based on the opening in the Great Britain the first railway to rely exclusively on locomotives driven by steam power, with no horse-drawn traffic and the first to be fully timetabled.
The sides of the case in full-face are stylized as railway rails.
The new mechanism and its special key Hvilina-winder are the distinctive features of the new models.
The unconventional decision made by our constructors and designers aims to diversify the experience of wearing wristwatches and tackle a range of technical challenges posed by the complex case with its stylized railway rails.
With its stylized engraving, the design of the key Hvilina-winder refers to the esthetics of the Industrial style.
The dial has been redesigned in a more moderate and classical style and now has an window demonstrating the mechanism operation. The highlighted mark at the 27th minute is a reference to an interesting historical fact: trains on the Liverpool-Manchester railway were running at a speed of 27 km / h.
In addition, one of the central features includes the redesigned back case. Its transparent central part surrounded by a stylized gearwheel shows the mechanism operation.
The collection includes three models, differing in color schemes. Each model is named one of the types of trains that ran on the railway: Rocket, Phoenix, Northum (from Northumbrian), Planet, Swiftsure, Lion. On the balance wheel of each model is engraved a matching train and the date of the railroad opening.
The case material is stainless steel, with the water resistance of 50 m and sapphire glass. The strap is made of genuine leather.
