The William Walker Watch takes its unique design cues from the 1900 Siebe Gorman & Company copper and brass dive helmet. The deep blue enamel dial represents that Walker was a deep-sea diver – the best in the country. The applied logo, signed crown, and double deployment butterfly clasp sport the logo which comes from the helmets glass guard.
The watch’s heart is a Swiss made movement. It houses a STP calibre 1-11 self winding automatic. The movement is decorated with 26 jewels, a jewelled barrel bridge, Cotes De Geneve (Geneve Stripes) on the rotor wheel, and perlage work on the bridges.

Untreated, copper and brass will react with their environments causing oxidisation. This is known as the patina of the metal, and different environments will create a different patina. The case of every watch will have a patina unique to the owner, based on where they go, and what they do. What will your William Walker Watch’s patina say about you?
