PAYING HOMAGE TO THE HYDROPLANE RECORD (1933)
Our 44mm Longitude Marine Series watch acknowledges the achievement of Hubert Scott-Paines’ record breaking Miss Britain III hydroplane boat, and powered by a beautiful ETA 2824 automatic movement, there is no doubt that it will keep impeccable time.
Its classic black enamelled dial with contrasting white indexed Roman numerals evoke the halcyon days of great British world record achievement and the polished diamond cut hands are true to the elegant clean lines of Scott-Paines’ hydroplane.
L2’s beautifully smooth polished case and DSL lugs effortlessly sweep into the black vintage leather strap which is handmade in the Zero West workshop. A polished and deep engraved half exhibition globe back with sapphire crystal window commemorates Hubert Scott-Paines’ 1933 100mph record-breaking run on Southampton water, over 80 years ago.
