The Trade Pattern watch takes its name from the standard design for British army pocket watches produced during World War II. Indices are heavily filled with yolk-coloured paint, and a full railroad minute track allows for precise timekeeping. Note the unpainted dashes corresponding to the painted numbers at 3,9, and 12, and the wholly unpainted markers at 6, which would have been overlapped by a small seconds dial in the original pocket watches. The polished steel pencil hands are filled with matching yolk coloured paint, and the whole dial is magnified by the high domed plexiglass crystal, subtly etched with a ‘G’ in the centre. The engraved screw-down crown is heavily ridged and wears quite large relative to the 28mm cushion case, recalling the tool watches that inspired it.
