The Bespoke watch That You Name!

Just received my watch and I am thoroughly pleased! The inscription is beautifully executed on the chapter ring; not an easy task I expect. The design and details are quite perfect and just as desired. It fits my wrist perfectly! Many thanks to you and your associates for working with me on this.

Your watch will be your watch, styled by you, according to your preferences, and created for you alone.

Look on the Pinchbeck Bespoke as a blank canvas: the way this watch is built accommodates many possibilities.  You can have a personalised dial design in your chosen colour scheme, perhaps including your initials.  Lots of additional options are available, including an exhibition (clear) caseback, and gold plating/engraving of the movement's rotor.

And yet, there is something even more special . . .

You'll find it if you look carefully between the glass and the dial: it is the gilt ring, minutely hand-engraved with whatever text you choose! A remarkable detail that is offered by no other watchmaker: so small as to be almost secret, but which makes your watch as personal as a Savile Row suit.

The classic proportions of the English-made 40mm steel case are just right. Discreet embellishment in 18-carat gold enhances its appeal, or you can have the whole case made in precious metal. The self-winding movement is a masterpiece of beautiful Swiss engineering. Even the strap, individually handmade in Devon, is a small work of art!

The best things in life are worth waiting for, and although buying a bespoke watch is not a quick process we aim to make it an enjoyable one. Consultation is the key, whether by email, telephone or – best of all – during a VIP appointment here in Lincoln. You’ll be able to take your time, choosing the features that will combine to make your unique timepiece. Once the decisions are made, it may take several months to complete and test your watch: well worth the wait, it will become an indispensable friend for life.

We will quote a firm price based on your individual specification. Your watch costs from £4,999, and this includes the hand-engraved chapter ring between the glass and dial, your choice of two matt colours on the dial (or the Infinity Dial) and a hand-polished stainless steel case.

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.
