About us

Once again I must also thank you for your outstanding customer service. After ordering a watch for my son’s 21st with you I did not consider any other company when ordering for my husband’s 50th.

A Pinchbeck watch is understated in a very English way, with an elegant clarity that lets you tell the time at a glance. 

An independent British watchmaker, we make limited numbers of beautifully understated men’s watches (the Pinchbeck name has graced fine timepieces since 1710, and today’s company is managed by a family member). 

We believe that, as well as telling the time, your watch should gratify the senses: your eyes, hands and even your nose (our Tanner Bates straps smell wonderful!). Such a special watch is too personal to be mass-produced, so every Pinchbeck timepiece is built by hand, in England. It comes with a 5-year mechanical warranty, and UK delivery is now free.

You won’t find Pinchbeck watches jostling for attention in High Street shops. Instead, we deal direct with you, our Customer, to deliver the best service and genuine value. We’re always happy to advise, by phone or email, and you can order online or by telephone. You will also be welcome to visit us by appointment in Lincoln.

We realise that our customers are our most important assets, so we try to make their experience of buying and owning a Pinchbeck watch a distinct pleasure.
