Paying homage to one of the greatest British writers of the last century, the grandson of the late Dame Daphne du Maurier, Ned du Maurier Browning, celebrates his family legacy with a unique, Swiss-made watch collection. Blending 20th century English story-telling heritage with 21st century design, du Maurier Watches announces the launch of new models in the limited edition collection for men and women, available exclusively from www.dumaurierwatches.com and selected retail.
The “Daphne Signature” model
Inspired by a literary legend, du Maurier Watches has created the Daphne Signature model for ladies. The watch has been designed and created to embody the character and personality of one of the UK’s best loved authors, Daphne du Maurier. Designed by her grandson and the founder of du Maurier Watches, Ned du Maurier Browning, the process of designing the watch has been an enlightening journey into his memories of the past; “The style and design of the watch really came together based on what I remember about Daphne, what she wore, her personality, her character and her inimitable style. To me this very embodies her and I know she would have loved it.”
The watch takes design notes from the 40s and 50s featuring a vintage style, golden cream coloured face with gold index markers and elegant, lancette hands. The small second hand sits perfectly balanced on the curved dial covered with domed sapphire glass all enclosed in a neat 32mm gold case. The delicate onion crown and smart wire lugs blend beautiful detail and contrast with the brushed leather strap with gold pvd etched buckle, completing the vintage feel.
The highly polished steel, screw-down case back reveals not only the Limited Edition serial number but also Daphne du Maurier’s personal signature engraved for all time.
Simple, elegant yet classically beautiful, just like the lady herself.
The Maxim Black
Elegance and sophistication combine in this stunning timepiece presented in deep black and striking silver.
A new, bold version of the original, the Maxim Black, like the man himself, is stylish, sophisticated and classic.
The Maxim shows timeless style and quality with non-reflective sapphire glass, silver markers and elegant slimline hands.

This watch is designed for all occasions and will ensure you stand out from the crowd.
