Flying Scotsman – Zero West Collaboration

Zero West are proud to announce a unique collaboration through the Science Museum Group for the 100th year anniversary of the Flying Scotsman… The most famous locomotive in the world.

Over the summer and out of the blue, we were approached by the Science Museum Group who were looking for a precision watch partner to tell a unique historical story through a limited edition timepiece.

As a brand that champions British engineering through our beautifully designed watches, we were ideally placed to meet their exacting requirements and were honoured to be asked if we would consider working together.
When we talked through the project the answer was easy… Let’s do this! The collaboration represents everything we at Zero West are passionate about, from British design to setting speed records, it’s an icon that travelled the world.
The Flying Scotsman was the first steam locomotive to travel non-stop from London to Edinburgh and the first to achieve an authenticated 100mph. A legendary icon of the golden age of British design and engineering, the locomotive evokes nostalgia for the romance of a bygone era of steam travel.
Bought by the National Railway Museum, York in 2004, the Flying Scotsman is now part of the National Collection and an important part of British transport history.

The new Zero West FS watch will display rare material from the Flying Scotsman. This was an unbelievable opportunity for the brand and could only come about as a result of the partnership with the Science Museum Group…as one of our straplines reads,’True history on the wrist’.

This unique timepiece will be unveiled on Friday 24th February when it will be available for pre-orders. Stay tuned over social media in the lead up to the unveiling, it’s going to be first class!
