Uniform Wares is a British brand established in 2009. Founders Patrick Bek and Oliver Fowles set out with the objective to create an alternative to over-embellished statement watches. The result was a disruptive new breed of minimal timepieces that made their mark on the quartz watch industry. Every watch in the Uniform Wares collection is developed entirely in its London studio and workshop, from initial sketch, to prototype and final design.
The brand has launched the C40, a 40mm day-date watch in 3 distinct styles. Part of their Swiss made collection, it completes the line-up of the brand’s classically-inspired C-Line. Designed with simplicity in mind, the C40 includes many of Uniform Wares’ design signatures including large, open dials, long hands and bold, applied batons. Its case proportions are designed to wear close to the wrist to ensure a slim, effortless fit under sleeves.
The three C40 styles are available in a refined colour palette including black and silver, warm grey with rose gold and tonal steel. Each C40 can be paired with up to five different strap or bracelet options and include essentials in nappa and cordovan leather through to an engineered Milanese mesh and luxury pieces in alligator or galuchat, which are handmade in Paris.
The C40 is powered by a 7-jewel, 11. calibre Swiss-made ETA movement, a premium quartz movement with brass main plate and bridge and is screwed directly into the 316L stainless steel case to ensure reliability, longevity and accuracy. The C40 also features a domed sapphire crystal lens with multilayered, clear-anti-reflective coating. The C40 is the latest addition will retail between £550 – £880 and can be ordered directly from the Uniform Wares website.
