Courage is not being fearless

Words spoken whilst pushing the boundaries of physics and speed, Donald Campbell was no stranger to life-endangering challenges of extreme engineering. The Coniston Collection is inspired by it’s namesake lake where Donald and Sir Malcolm Campbell set numerous water-speed records.

After the Coniston was voted winner of our Naming Competition, we began a journey of discovery through the history of the Lake and what happened on it. The name Coniston has become synonymous with the Bluebird K7, Donald Campbell’s speed records and his fateful end. To honour this remarkable journey we’ve had, Lake Coniston and the iconic man, we created a watch that reflected Bluebird’s distinctive colour scheme. We’ve used a blue similar to the shade found on Bluebird K7 and, along with yellow accents found on the Bluebird’s badge and intake covers, used the same yellow as an accent on the Coniston Bluebird timepiece. Paired with a dark cognac leather strap, the Coniston Bluebird immediately evokes that bygone era of engineering prowess and looks, to our humble eyes anyway, the most distinctive of the Coniston collection.
