London watchmaker William Wood is proud to announce the launch of its fourth and most prestigious range, The Triumph Collection
This is their first Swiss-Made Chronograph watch and their chosen movement is the SW510 built by Sellita. Equipped with a push-button stopwatch, 60 second sub dial, 30-minute sub dial and date window. The movement is 30mm in diameter, has an impressive power-reserve of 48 hours, and an exceptional accuracy with 27 jewelled bearings.
The Triumph Collection sub dials take inspiration from the dashboard gauges within a fire engine cockpit. Reminiscent of pressure pumps, the sub hands are anodised in red, blue, or gold to match the main chronograph hand, shaped in the style of a vintage fire bell chime.
The chronograph hand and 30-minute sub dial are operated by the antique brass finish buttons located on the side of the case. The back of the Triumph is a one-of-a-kind custom-made fire alarm caseback. The Sellita SW510 movement residing inside acts as the fire alarm, with an emergency plate above reading ‘In Case Of Fire Break Glass’, housed together by an exhibition glass. An iconic statement aligned to the heritage of William Wood Watches.
The Triumph Collection comes coupled with William Wood’s line of upcycled British fire hose straps, which have served and protected the UK Fire & Rescue Service for over 10 years. You can even still smell the smokiness within the rubber.
