HOW YOUR WATCH IS MADE:
Pictures show the looks of our watches, but not the thought that goes into their making. Every Harold Pinchbeck watch is hand-built by our watchmakers in England. We embrace computer-aided design, but we also treasure traditional craftsmanship, so our watches are a marriage of both; our approach is a world away from mass production.
Your watch is made in a workshop (not a factory), by a skilled craftsman. This work can't be rushed: it's painstaking, requiring good eyesight and steady hands! When he has built up a watch he examines it from every angle before testing it thoroughly, adjusting it as necessary to ensure reliability and accuracy. Eventually, the case will receive its final polish and inspection, and at this stage, the handmade strap is fitted. Only then is the watch ready to be placed in its presentation box, ready to be sent to its owner, together with its certification and the five-year warranty.

The order process:
To guarantee the exclusivity of this superb watch, no more than 25 will be made.
With your Chelsea Reach watch, understatement is the keynote, enhanced by the discreet inclusion of gold embellishments; the gold ring between the glass and the dial will be hand engraved with details of the year's race, and the case back will be inset with an 18 carat gold disc, engraved with that watch's individual number (your own number may be reserved in advance, subject to availability). Your Chelsea Reach watch will be delivered in a wooden presentation box, with a commemorative plaque and signed certificate, and the back of each watch will be laser engraved with its name and number, and the words 'The Glory of the River'. Your own number may be reserved in advance, subject to availability. The leather strap is individually crafted by Devon craftsman Tanner Bates.
Your Chelsea Reach will be built individually, in England, after we have discussed its individual specification with you, to create a very special watch. This process takes a little time – typically three to four months – but the resulting watch will be well worth waiting for!
As you would expect, some discussion is necessary to confirm the individual specification for your watch. This may be done by telephone, email, or letter: we are always pleased to discuss your ideas, and advise, without obligation. If you are able to visit us in Lincoln (by appointment only, please), we can discuss your watch and show you examples. Should you go ahead we will ask for a £2000 non-returnable deposit to confirm your order, with the balance being due at the time of delivery. As the Chelsea Reach is a bespoke product our 90-day guarantee of satisfaction does not apply, but we will, of course, work to ensure that you are completely happy with your watch.
After placing your order we will contact you to discuss and confirm the details of your watch.
