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.

simply understated elegance, which is exactly what I was looking for. I am really chuffed, so thanks to all your team who made it well worthwhile waiting for!
