Marine Clock Carrying Case

Collaboration

In collaboration with Bremont Watches, we designed this carrying case to display a marine chronometer. Made from English walnut and oak bark tanned leather, the design represents the best of English leather craftsmanship with compound forming, tooling decoration and stitching.

The leather is named after the centuries-old technique of tanning raw hides using the natural tannin found in oak bark – a process that can take between 12 and 18 months. Today, only one family in Britain still produces this richly coloured organic leather, which is favoured by distinguished shoe makers and saddlers for its quality, durability and finish.

Hundreds and hundreds of hours went into the manufacture of this clock. Who else, other than Silverlining, would be up to task of matching this craftsmanship?
