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.
Echoing the spartan craftsmanship of military instrumentation, the Torpedo's graphic aviator dial is reduced to its most basic components, with a 24-hour outer dial, minimalist inner dial and embossed hour markers.
The Torpedo's tan leather watch strap is underlined with Newgate's signature red leather underlining.
