Time was, the only ‘Schofield Beater’ was Gordon the Gopher.
Thankfully, this new trio of timepieces from the titular Sussex based firm has nothing to do with rudimentary puppetry on children’s TV and everything to do with rugged horological craftmanship intended to last.
Because much like a battered Chesterfield sofa, where the aged version is arguably more easy on the eye than fresh, this latest range of Schofield watches have been built to withstand being broken in – in fact, it's encouraged.
Crammed into a neat 44m steel, bronze and blue titanium case with enamelled dials, sapphire crystal and 42hr power reserve, it’s like the heirloom you’ve yet to bequeath.
Though with prices starting from £2,820, careful not to rough it up too much.
