Minimal and monochrome. We’ve stripped our Drumline back to its fundamentals. The Drumline monochrome range is both classic and contemporary. These black on black and black and white styles go with everything from your workwear to your weekend outfit. This understated range can solve any clothing conundrum. Suitable for both men and women, The Drumline Monochrome collection won’t break the bank either!

Embrace the dark side

Add a luxe finish to any outfit with a black minimalist leather watch. Whether it’s your weekday workwear or casual weekend attire. You’ll max out the cost-per-wear with our new range of black and white timepieces.


Versatile Watches

This everyday watch has a straight-cut 316L stainless steel case for a clean profile, before coating in hardwearing ion plating. The Drumline Monochrome collection features a contemporary, graphic dial with linear hands in black or white, and a hardwearing mineral glass lens. This understated timepiece is finished off with a black leather strap, underlined in cream leather.


His and Hers 

Our watch collections are unisex. The lines between male and female clothing and accessories are blurring to encourage a more gender fluid industry. We replace the idea of his and hers watches to create a sophisticated and practical range of wristwear suitable for everyone to wear. Plus, you can even start #twinning with your other half – or sharing each other’s watches!

Founder and head designer, Jim, talks through the design and his inspiration behind the new watch collection


"Chloe and I started the business together, so we could indulge in our passion for travel. We take inspiration from the places we visit and the things we see, wandering around the streets of different cities and soaking up the atmosphere. The architecture of global cityscapes is the key inspiration behind The Drumline Monochrome watch range.

For this new collection, we took our best-selling style; The Drumline and added six new watches, all in black, with four reverse white dials. Form, function and attention to detail are at the heart of this range. Minimalist lines are combined with luxe finishes and finished off with classic black leather straps.

I wanted this collection to be stripped back. Taking a contemporary silhouette back to its basics. The monochrome Drumline watch collection allows people to create a powerful sartorial statement with the bare minimum. That to me is what minimalism is all about and I want that to be reflected in all our watches."
