Golden hands and accents contrasting against a black dial and sapphire coin-edge bezel with a dash of red at the 12 o'clock triangular marker.

A truly excellent watch tells a story, and the story of the Flagship finds its spirit in the man of Horatio Nelson, Vice Admiral of the British Royal Navy. As a commander, Lord Nelson was a brilliant naval strategist and best known for his decisive role in the Battle of Trafalgar in October of 1805.

Etched onto the caseback of each Flagship is the HMS Victory, the last flagship of Lord Nelson as he sailed into battle against Napoleon's larger naval force.
