The Lufbery Mark VII Trench Watch
Inspired by the iconic vintage watches of the First World War. The Lufbery Mark VII is a premium mechanical watch, crafted from 316L stainless steel, with scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass and C3 luminova hands and numerals.
The History of the Trench Watch
The iconic and innovative trench watch was born in the trenches of Flanders during the First World War.
The first wrist watches were private commissions made by wealthy officers serving on the front line. They were designed be tough, practical, easy to use but they were also meant to be objects of beauty. By 1915 every luxury jeweller in London, Paris and Geneva was producing their own wrist-watch aimed at front line soldiers, they called them trench watches.
The Lufbery Mark VII takes its inspiration from these first wrist watches. The shape of our case and the design of our crown pays homage to their iconic design. Our dial is almost identical to the dials of the original trench watches, which were heavily influenced by the fashionable art nouveau style of the time.
