I’ve been following the folks over at Schofield for awhile now, including our review of their customer-only strap kit (here). The Signalman has been a hit, and they’re currently working on a new model.
This new watch is being called the Blacklamp Carbon – carbon due to the case being made of CF, and Blacklamp as an homage to the smugglers lamps of old. Aside from the interest of a new watch coming to market, this one is giving us (the public at large) some views into the process as they create the piece, courtesy of this blog they setup.
Some specific details on the watch aren’t clear as of yet (as they work towards releasing it at the end of this year), but here are the specs I’ve been able to glean:
- 101 piece limited edition, each one named for an English lighthouse or light-vessel
- Materials: carbon fiber case, poly-neoprene strap, titanium buckle
- Manually-wound movement
Other intriguing bits are a color scheme that will look to mimic the look of UV light, and a crown featuring an embedded tritium tube (the first I’ve seen that has this). If you want some more details and background, definitely follow the blog, and check out the pre-order page here.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
