Thomas Earnshaw watches is a brand that we’ve seen in the past here on Geargreed. A brand that we fell in love with, a brand that focuses on high-end luxury dress watches that delivery quality at affordable prices. We will be talking about the longitude collection and more specifically the ES-8807-03 model. Many heads were turned during the “review” period and many compliments were received.
The case of the Longitude ES-8807-03 is made out of Stainless Steel which is extremely resistant to corrosion. The size of the case is 42mm in diameter and 13.5mm in height. It surely wears on the thicker side for a dress watch but once you put it on your wrist you won’t even notice it. It fits perfect under a shirt. As we’ve seen in the past, the majority of Earnshaw Watches are engraved on the left side with the word “Earnshaw” a nice touch that not many brands offer. Some will love it some will hate it. We definitely love it. It’s aesthetically pleasing.
The skeletonized dial showcases an open heart next to the 9 position, with roman numbering all around the skeletonized center. A skeleton watch is for the people who enjoy watching a well crafted movement being in action while complimenting their wrists. A nice addition are the purple screws that decorate the movement and give it a nice twist. The color of the dial is more on the the darker grey with the roman numeral being black around it. The hour and minute hands are on the grey side too although they have a tint of white in their circles in order to be able to read the time easily. Again, a watch that has everything in the right place. Overall, we love this timepiece.
The movement that powers up the Thomas Earnshaw Longitude ES-8807-03 Watch is a Japan Automatic Skeleton 3 hand movement. We don’t really know the exact brand of the movement but we can easily and safely say that it’s a reliable movement for the time we have been using the watch. It has been super accurate and spon on the whole time. It has a power reserve of around 35-40 hours which is an added benefit based on our testing.
The backcase of the Longitude ES-8807-03 is a clear backcase with a mineral crystal showcasing the beautiful movement that is powering up this beauty of a timepiece. The rotor of the movement is decocared based on the colors of Thomas Earnshaw Watches, brown and grey. On the rotor we can clearly see the Logo of the brands proudly being presented. Furthermore, we can also admire the mechanics of the movement being in action clearly. Again, the attention to detail that Thomas Earnshaw is putting in their timepieces is exquisite.
On the right side of the watch we find the push/pull onion crown. The crown looks and feels premium and it’s super easy to operate. With the crown you can change the time and also wind up your watch in case you have just started wearing it. This is in order the watch doesn’t have enough power. The strap of the Earnshaw Longitude ES-8807-03 has a width of 22 near the lugs and 20mm near the buckle. It has a strap buckle that has been modified to showcase the “E” of Earnshaw.
The verdict for the watch is extremely good. The design, the aesethtic characteristics they added, the clear caseback, the skeleton movement, the decoration, everything add up to a unique watch for an amazing price. A true bargain for what you get.
