Racing, diving, and pilot’s watches are the three pillars of the sports watch category. There is a lot of demand for these kinds of watches, and as a result there is a saturation of novelties in a familiar format. Zero West, however, takes things to the next level. Their watches are living mementos of history, each design the true embodiment of aviation, marine, and automotive aesthetics. Zero West creations stand out with their distinct case profiles and incorporation of historically important salvaged materials that help create a rich backstory for each piece. This is where their motto “recovered, recast, reinvented” comes into play, and brand founders Andrew Brabyn and Graham Collins pride themselves on tying each collection into British heritage and history. Their latest creation, the Zero West H1 Hurricane, pays homage to the MKI Hawker Hurricane World War II plane, not only by building a watch around its aesthetic, but by incorporating an actual piece of one the battle-flown planes.
“Your heart was warm and happy
With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
