STEALTH-LIKE

A strictly limited run of 100 colour-way designs, manufactured in a hardened 'Diamond-Like Carbon’ coating technique for the case. DLC is a class of amorphous carbon material that displays some of the typical properties of diamond. The primary qualities are hardness, wear resistance, and slickness - creating a deep stealth-like black case in both polished and brushed finish. The Ponting Black’s matte carbon grey dial creates the backdrop to the boldly coloured steel blue main hands and engine red GMT hand with the classic sweep second hand finished in English green Farer A tip running around the edge of the dial.

NIGHT REVEAL

The main hour and minute hands, GMT hand and over printed numerals are all finely infilled in two tones of Super-LumiNova - a non toxic photo luminescent transforming the watch at night into a glowing beauty. Like the original Ponting dial, the GMT layout has been brought in to the inner dial space, creating a step change design and central circle feature to read the 24 hour clock and second time zone.

STORY
Named after Herbert George Ponting – born in 1870, both a brilliant explorer and photographer. He is best known for the iconic photographs he took whilst accompanying Scott’s expeditions to the South Pole in 1910. Following the tragic death of Scott and his men in Antartica it was Ponting’s images and films that were later used to show off their heroism.
