Inspired by Nigel’s childhood passion, soccer, the Referee Watch has a vibrant red-orange color-blocking motif that allows the wearer to know exactly when 45 minutes have passed, so they can call a match’s halftime. The 40mm watch comes with two different straps, a traditional black leather band made by S. B. Foot Co. Tannery and a slip-through fabric strap with the distinctive footballing colors of “claret and blue.”
Though the custom color-blocking might seem like a fashion-forward fabrication, this detail is authentic to 1950s Referee watches that would have been made around the time Nigel Cabourn was growing up. With a cream dial, domed acrylic crystal, and etched branded caseback; the Cabourn Timex is a distinctive slice of history and a vibrant pop of color that will certainly make your wrist stand out from the others it.
Available for $215 CAD (~$164.41 USD) at Lost & Found.
