96Zero Watches

This project has a very personal feel for us as we wanted to pay homage to the WW2 codebreakers and personnel who intercepted and decoded messages. Why? Well it’s very simple as a child growing up in the 80’s as a lot of our grandparents were involved in the war in many different ways, I knew my Nan was in the military, but I never knew a great deal or bothered to ask… as a young kid it seemed irrelevant to me. She never mentioned it, as her generation just did what they needed to do it seems. It was relatively recently (past few years) that we have pieced things together and found further bits of information. Turns out my Nan was part of a team who intercepted messages and enabled the sinking of the Tirpitz Battleship on the 12th November 1944. Annoyingly I regret not asking more questions on a daily basis, but I do walk down to the local military cemetery where she rests and have a chat with her when I want to clear my head. This watch is in honour of not only my Nan, but every person who gave their everything in those very tough times across the globe. We have a compass bezel and red hand to create the compass feel, but we decided on numbers and letters as a salute to the codebreakers. It’s not a common look, but then again it wasn’t a common situation!  Dot is in recognition of morse code…dot/dash, but also to a great lady who was called Dorothy.
