Meridian Prime Guards Red
In 1998, second generation watchmaker and fellow of the British Horological Institute Simon Michlmayr spent 29 days walking from Canada to the North Pole and that was where he designed the Meridian Prime
While on the expedition, Simon wore a Swiss watch from a highly renowned brand and discovered that despite the manufacturer’s aspirations for it to be a practical tool watch, it was virtually useless. He needed something that he trusted to expose to the elements, which he could read easily at a glance and on which he could totally rely not to let him down.
On his return to England, Simon resolved to design and manufacture a practical, hardwearing wristwatch that would be a “tool, not a toy”.
Manufactured almost entirely in Simon’s home city of Norwich, England (the base caliber is Swiss), each case and back are manufactured as a pair, which means that they fit together perfectly and uniquely providing water-resistance to 1000 feet.
This glass is treated with internal and external anti-reflective coating to military specification.
One of the great things about hand made, small batch watches like the Meridian Prime is that every one can be different. As a couple of the people involved with the Meridian business are big Porsche fans, this DLC model has a black dial with markers painted in Porsche Guards Red.
The strap on this special Prime is a black textured leather one with red accents from Hirsch that complements the dial of the watch perfectly.
Supplied with a watch case and of course the papers, this Meridian Prime comes with a 12 month warranty from the manufacturer.
Escapement Magazine were particularly impressed with the Prime back when they saw it in the early days – click here to read what they said.
We’ve sold several Meridian watches over the past months, all to extremely happy clients – you can read their feedback here
