The Brough SS100
Official watchmaker to Brough Superior Motorcycles
An unashamedly opulent watch, the SS100 blends the magic of the World’s most prestigious motor cycles with a watchmaking heritage whose origins were in 18th Century London. Truly a ‘small object of desire’, it will look superb with any attire and in any setting. Like the machines it honours, it exemplifies the best in engineering and gentlemanly good taste, and it has the good manners not to shout about itself!
Brough Superior has always been the epitome of exclusivity, luxury, style and extraordinary design, allied to a passion for motorcycles. All these qualities are to be found in this new Pinchbeck watch, which has been created in close collaboration with Brough Superior Motorcycles Ltd.
Its hand-made case is beautifully, and individually, engineered, in a way that mass production can merely imitate, demonstrating how superlative craftsmanship still flourishes in England. Combined with the superb Swiss movement, the result is an elegant, yet masculine, timepiece that reflects the magnificence of the motorcycles whose name it bears.
The SS100 has a static bezel with an 18 carat gold inset badge above 12 o’clock, as well as an inlaid gold dot in the crown and an engraved, individually numbered, gold disc inset in the back. The inner ring, between the sapphire crystal and the dial, may be engraved with your own personal inscription.

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.
