THE WATCH TAILOR
The Brough Superior Motorcycles and Harold Pinchbeck collaboration:
We were intrigued and delighted to be approached, in 2009, by Brough Superior Motorcycles Ltd., with a view to making special watches to celebrate these iconic bikes.
The Brough Superior name has long been associated with luxury, superb design and the very best in British engineering. Such was their quality that they were officially recognised as ‘The Rolls-Royce of motorcycles’; such was their style that they were the seven-times choice of T. E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia’).
The marque has undergone a renaissance under CEO Mark Upham. His enthusiasm for motorbikes is almost matched by his keenness for fine watches, so it has been interesting to work with him on the Brough Superior watches. The first watches – the SS100 and SS101 – have much in common with the bikes themselves; they inherit several design cues, and are individually made to a very high standard.
We will be working over the coming months and years to develop this partnership, and plan to expand the Brough Superior collection of great English watches.
