The Rebecca Story

Even as the idea for Du Maurier Watches was in its infancy, Ned and I agreed unanimously that the first two watches we designed must be the ‘Maxim’ and the ‘Rebecca’. We both had strong ideas of what they should look like and strong opinions about the characters colouring our thoughts.

As an English literature student, Rebecca was my first introduction to Daphne du Maurier and I read the book from cover to cover practically without break. Whilst intending to continue exploring the novels, I’m ashamed to admit that I didn’t read any of her other books until I met Ned six years later. Obviously, wanting to impress him, I then read the lot. Rebecca, though, remains my firm favourite with its fierce and glamorous namesake haunting the reader at every turn.

The watch had to be bold and luxurious yet elegant. There was no question that gold should feature, preferably rose gold and definitely diamonds. Women’s watches of the 1930s were very small and mainly designed for evening wear so this design became more about our impressions of what we could imagine Rebecca wearing, combined with what women today would like to wear.This has sometimes created brisk debate but this design is, of necessity, very subjective.

On one memorable occasion Ned took our finished prototype off to show to a rather influential individual in the hopes of gaining some favourable press. Upon seeing our Rebecca she declared that we were absolutely wrong and who did Ned think he was to design such a watch?! Ned, very politely, explained that he was Daphne du Maurier’s grandson and this was simply his take on the character of Rebecca. It was a pivotal moment and the meeting went well after that, although we still didn’t get the coverage!

The Rebecca of my imaginings remains central to the design of this watch. I can see her in my mind’s eye in that famous scene, so disastrously replicated by her successor, coming down those stairs at Manderley to greet her guests, with her cloud of dark hair, in that fabulous white dress, wearing this watch.
