Having been in the watch industry since 1805, the aesthetic style of Thomas Earnshaw watches draws heavily on the past. After all, the British founder for which the brand was named, played a key role in the development of timepieces centuries ago. With bold Roman numerals, a large onion crown, and hands reminiscent of a grandfather clock, this automatic watch is clearly inspired by a different era. That being said, it’s backed by a forward-thinking movement in the Valjoux 7750 25-jewel automatic. As far as functions, it’s no Luddite, either. Look to the chronograph, tachymeter, date window, and hacking seconds for a glimpse at its many wonders. And for a glimpse at the movement that powers it all, simply flip over the stainless steel case and feast your eyes.

If you’ve never heard of Thomas Earnshaw, you’ve surely experienced the effects of his work. A pioneer in the field of horology, Earnshaw helped develop the marine chronometer in the 18th century, which was crucial on the journeys of the British Royal Navy during the golden years of exploration. He even created the official timepiece of the HMS Beagle, that legendary ship that led Charles Darwin on his journey to circumnavigate the globe, inspiring much of his work in evolution. That pioneering spirit still lives on today in the watchmaking techniques of the Thomas Earnshaw brand, a staple in the timekeeping industry since 1805.
