About the design
Inspired by the rigorously functional aesthetic of military marine instrumentation, the Torpedo watch introduces a contemporary and graphic element to the classic aviator dial watch.
Designed in Newgate's British design studio by Newgate's founder and creative director Jim Read, the solid 316L surgical-grade stainless steel case and integral angled inner bezel are hammered and pressed into shape using multiple processes of heavy tooling, before coating in hard-wearing gloss black ionic-plating.
Echoing the spartan craftsmanship of military instrumentation, the Torpedo's black aviator dial is reduced to its most basic components, with a contrasting white 24-hour outer dial, minimalist inner dial and embossed hour markers.
The Torpedo's black leather watch strap is underlined with Newgate's signature red leather underlining.
