Oxford

The colour combination red and blue reflected the coat of arms of Oxford so nicely that we decided to call this watch the Oxford.

Have you ever looked at the coat of arms of the English university town Oxford?  The one shown on their town hall depicts a red coloured ox crossing a river at a ford. That is how the town got its name.

When we commissioned a red coloured dial with Alain for our new collection Nicola was contemplating going to Oxford. And we had a brochure on our conference table showing the coat of arms of Oxford when Alain inquired about the hues we would like him to work on. Nicola and myself told him to get inspired by the colour of the Ox on the coat of arms.

The colour combination red and blue reflected the coat of arms of Oxford so nicely that we decided to call this watch the Oxford.
