British watch brand Schofield has dropped the Japanese Beater B5, a companion piece to its Japanese Bronze Beater B4, and a watch it’s calling the “prettiest Schofield to date.”

The watch pairs a 44mm example of Schofield’s Brutalist case – made from a ‘Middle-tex’ finish stainless steel – with a decorative sterling silver and enamel caseback featuring a plum tree motif, inspired by a manhole cover from Fuchū in Tokyo.

Enamel Sterling Silver Plum Tree Caseback Informs Stepped Blossom Dial And Matching Lapel Pin

The face reflects the plum color palate with a stepped “muted, blossom colored” dial, green glowing Super-LumiNova C3 highlights and brushed gold hands, matching the gold ring in the middle of the crown.

The watch – which, like all Schofields, comes with a matching lapel pin -  is secured on a coarse-weave Japanese plum canvas strap, naturally dyed using persimmon and plum, featuring an indigo calf lining.

Schofield presents the watch in a special edition ash box with ‘X marks the spot’ engraving inside the lid, a removeable cedar mounting block and space for the matching pin.

Powered by an STP 1-11 automatic time-only movement, the Japanese Beater B5 is available now as a limited edition of 29 pieces via Schofield, priced £2,983 GBP (approximately $3,594 USD) excluding VAT.
