The Brough SALT

My Wife loved her watch as I do too, the size is perfect and everything about the service has been exemplary, best of all is knowing there aren’t too many examples like it around!
— R. S. UK.


With its retro English inspiration the SALT is perfect for the individual who wants a watch with a real story and plenty of class (but not a hint of bling!), whether they be a biker or not. Make your own statement by choosing your strap-confident red or ice-cool white.

At 36 mm the Salt is a classic size, not large by the standards of modern fashion. The sinuous, reflective curves of its highly polished stainless steel case impart a subtle charm; like all fine watches there is sapphire glass for scratch resistance and a screw-down crown to deter moisture.

Your Salt will be delivered in a beautiful wooden presentation box, and at no extra cost we will engrave your personal dedication on a brass plaque. It all adds up to the perfect gift!

There’s a choice of superb Swiss movements: a highly accurate quartz (battery) type, or an automatic (mechanical, self-winding) calibre. If you opt for the quartz movement we will replace the battery whenever needed throughout your watch’s life. This superb service is free of charge, subject only to postage costs.

In August 2013 the Brough Superior Motorcycles team returned to the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah to add to their existing records. They were resoundingly successful, achieving two FIM world and four AMA records. The Harold Pinchbeck Salt watches celebrate this proud achievement - and add an affordable, ready-to-wear, classic to our Brough Superior collection.

We deal direct with you, our valued Customer, so that we can provide the best possible service. Every Harold Pinchbeck watch is individually assembled: not - like most watches - in some large factory, but by hand, in an English workshop. It’s then inspected and tested thoroughly before being beautifully packaged and despatched to its owner, complete with its generous five-year warranty. The Salt is also covered by our 90-day ‘no quibble’ guarantee, giving you the reassurance to buy with complete confidence.

Building your watch:

Pictures show the looks of our watches, but not the thought that goes into their making. Every Harold Pinchbeck watch is assembled by hand 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 the five year warranty.
