Black and gold – the most seductive combination!

The Charlotte’s enchanting simplicity lends a very special magic to the most sophisticated of feminine wrists. Its highly-polished stainless steel case is fitted with high-end features such as a water-resistant screw-down crown for adjustment, and a scratch-resistant sapphire glass. At 36 mm diameter and 11 mm depth the Charlotte is a medium-sized watch.

The Charlotte is powered by a highly accurate Swiss-made quartz movement. Its battery life is approximately two years, and one of the great benefits of buying a Harold Pinchbeck watch is that we will replace the battery whenever needed throughout your watch’s life. This superb service is free of charge, subject only to postage costs.

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 Charlotte 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.
