As far as endorsements go, you’d be hard pressed to beat both Horatio Nelson and US president George Washington wearing bespoke pocket watches handcrafted by your company.
This happens to be the position watchmakers James McCabe find themselves in. Founded by Irishman James McCabe in 1775, the brand opened its first store on Fleet Street and grew steadily, producing 50,000 watches, 7,000 clocks and 500 marine chronometers over a 100-year period.
Today the watchmaking traditions of James McCabe are kept alive through a range of dress watches inspired by the ethos of the late founder.
The Heritage Retrograde is the latest model to put a modern twist on the classic aesthetics of the brand's original timepieces. Crafted from 316 L marine grade stainless steel and straps of supple Italian leather, this watch is both unique and versatile.
Other features include precision Japanese quartz movement, featuring a retrograde day readout at the 6 o’clock position, as well as a water resistance of 3 Atmospheres – all handmade in England.
To celebrate the launch, James McCabe are giving away three separate prizes to three entrants, the first of which is a new Heritage Retrograde model, followed by 2 x £100 credit, then 4 x £50 credit, both to be spent on mccabewatches.com.
