A New Limited Edition by Dent London
The New Limited Edition Dent Ministry Steel “Evolution” Chronograph

Nobly proportioned, with a classic circular based design, the appearance of the watch is modeled on Dent chronometer no. 633 that was taken aboard the H.M.S. Beagle in 1831 to accompany Charles Darwin on the voyages around the world that lead to his revolutionary publication on the theory of evolution - “The Origin of the Species”.
