The C201 chronograph is an updated version of the C200, the first Chronograph timepiece from Glasgow based brand Paulin.
Designed and built in Glasgow, Paulin watches use components sourced from worldwide suppliers.
The watch uses a Japanese Miyotoa quartz movement and comes with a hand-stitched bridle leather strap from Clayton’s Tannery in England.
C201 has a 40mm stainless steel case and three chronograph sub-dials; a 24h dial, 30 minute and 60 second stopwatch and a date window at 4-o’clock. Adjustments are made using the crown and pushers on the right.
About the Brand
In response to the decline of British watchmaking in recent decades, sisters Elizabeth and Charlotte Paulin were moved to act. They founded the watch brand Paulin in 2012, a project the duo says is about "bringing together designing and making, and restarting an industry that’s been dead for generations."
In 2014 – after three years of refining design concepts and exhaustively searching the world for the best components – the Glasgow-based brand launched its debut collection.
Looking at the refined construction and the careful choice of materials, it is not surprising that Paulin’s design team, Lewis Heath and Evan Gray, originally trained as architects. The collection celebrates pure, uncomplicated forms: the palette is monochrome, occasionally accented by the use of strong primaries on the hands or the brand’s playful script logo, and the straps are kept conspicuously understated. These restrained design decisions serve to emphasise the quality of the materials: Japanese Miyota quartz movements, Italian leather, stainless steel casings and crystal mineral glass.
