At Harold Pinchbeck watches we design our own watches, we do not sub-contract this out to design companies or buy the manufacture and design in from large watch manufacturing facilities, like so many other companies do.
We always like to do things a little different and special at Harold Pinchbeck watches, if we can make something in a more genuine and organic way...we will. A watch being the sum of its parts, what really matters in our eyes is what the whole watch looks like, its overall style, design and quality is key.
This is a Harold Pinchbeck Christopher automatic watch on the workbench, this is where it all finally comes together to produce a very special bespoke watch. After many weeks of work, all the carefully crafted parts are finally brought together on the workbench, under the meticulous care of a highly skilled watchmaker.
Most high-end watch brands you will see on the market are being produced in fairly large numbers which means there is little opportunity to have your individual mark built into the watch, in essence you will be just buying the next one off the shelf!
Often we are asked the question of how Harold Pinchbeck watches are made? are they English? do we make the watches ourselves?
Looking in jewellers' windows, I am often struck by the glittering, flashy appearance of the watches and other goods on display. Carefully arranged, and lit with the latest technology, they are shown at their brand new, most seductive best - in much the same way as clothes and cars.
