For sale we have a rarely seen and attractive Dunhill Cityscape watch from the 2000s.

It is a classic watch, with timeless proportions to match. The Stainless-Steel case has a 34.25mm diameter and a thin depth of 10mm. The 41mm lug-to-lug measurement and tapered lug design makes this a comfortable watch. To the side is the original coin edge crown.

It has a fine, white matte dial with arrow hour markers, with the arabic 9, 12, 3 balancing the dial neatly with the date window at 6 O’clock. There are simple dash markers for the minutes/seconds with arabic numerals on the graduations of 5. It is simply signed with the Dunhill logo and marked automatic.


The hands are a unique design with two engraved lines spanning ¾ of the hour and minute hands. This gives the hands a unique interaction with the light, differentiating them from plain polished silver hands. The dial is protected by a domed sapphire crystal which looks great on the watch.


To the rear is an exhibition case back. The outside is steel and clearly engraved with the model highlights. The movement is lovely. It is an ETA 2892-A2 with a high standard of finishing which is easily admirable through the sapphire crystal. It is in very good condition and is keeping time to within -7 seconds a day.


The watch is presented on its original Dunhill strap on Dunhill deployment buckle.


Overall, this is a brilliant quality watch, with unique design elements from Dunhill, which is rarely seen as an automatic watch. Take your chance to get it today.


Dunhills revival:


The Cityscape was part of the collections Tom Bolt spearheaded as Dunhills lead designer in the mid 2000’s.


In the early 2000s and prior, Dunhill had been somewhat adrift, with hit or miss watch design, not quite fitting to the brands DNA, nor Dunhills customer base. CEO Simon Critchell decided to bring in Vintage watch expert Tom Bolt to inject fresh impetus in the mid 2000s.


The subsequent collections represented a fresh take. The archives contained a wealth of examples, which showed the innovation and versatility of the timepieces they offered, including facetted designs and car dash clocks. This led to a twist on traditional, British design with motor racing as an inspiration.
