Penny Farthing Watch

The Penny-Farthing watch is a tribute to the early bicycle that was the first bicycle to be called a "bicycle." Since wristwatches and bicycles have led parallel lives for 200 years now, this is a watch whose time has come.

In its time, the bike was known as an "ordinary," though with its large front wheel (the "penny") and tiny back one (the "farthing"), this "ordinary" was anything but.

Snappy moustaches, exercise and fitness, body piercing, tattoos... and now we can add wristwatches and Penny-Farthings to the many Victorian fashions popular today.

The Penny-Farthing wristwatch is the only timepiece for high wheelers. 38mm face. Domed crystal. Bespoke numbers. Leather band.
