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.

Du Maurier Watches has announced the release of the Daphne Signature model watch for ladies, available to pre-order for December delivery. This is the 4th watch to be released by the Dorset watchmakers, and features the personal signature of literary legend Daphne du Maurier engraved on the back.
The watch is the creation of Daphne du Maurier’s grandson, Ned Browning, founder of du Maurier watches. The Daphne Signature model takes its inspiration from the world-famous Rebecca author, and is simple, elegant and classically beautiful, just like the lady herself.
Ned explains, “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 much embodies her and I know she would have loved it.”
The watch is influenced by 40s and 50s design, 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.
On the highly polished steel screw-down case back is found the engraved signature number and the serial number of the piece. The piece comes with a choice of black or antique tan brushed suede calf leather for the strap.
This model follows on from the previous du Maurier Watches releases the Rebecca, the Maxim and the Maxim Black. Like these previous models, the Daphne Signature is a limited edition release, with only 300 pieces made (all Swiss made and individually numbered).
The Daphne Signature is priced at £425, and comes in a luxury presentation box. With December delivery available, it is being marketed as an ideal Christmas gift for watch lovers and du Maurier fans.
