Equally at home on the hills as in the boardroom, the Anning’s timeless design is for pioneers and urban adventurers.
Hand assembled in Switzerland and water resistant to 100m, with sapphire glass, it will take pretty much anything you care to throw at it.
Arabic numerals and large ‘compass’ pointers, make it easy to tell the time at a glance and high luminescence on both the pointer and the numbers mean you read it no matter what the conditions – whether night walking on the fells or flagging a cab in London.
Available with a Sunburst Blue dial, as well as Jet Black, the Anning is modern, yet classic, and celebrates the pioneering work of Mary Anning.
A choice of straps are also available, an extra strap can be purchased for special price of £15 (usual price of £25) with any Anning order.

Who was Mary Anning?
Born in 1799 in Lyme Regis, Mary Anning helped her father Richard sell the fossils he gathered on the Dorset coast. When he died, she was just eleven, yet she and her brother Joseph took over the business.
In 1811 she uncovered the 17ft fossil of what would become known as an ichthyosaurus. 12 years later, she became the first person to unearth a complete plesiosaur skeleton – this became the holotype, which was used to describe the species and that scientists still refer to it today.
Despite her finds and advice given to scientists across Europe, whose papers relied heavily on her discoveries and interpretations, she received no credit – and it is only in recent years that her role as a pioneer has become clear.
At Winton we celebrate unsung British pioneers, which is why the Anning has joined our portfolio.
