CHRISTOPHER | English Elegance
The Christopher is the finest and most personal watch we offer. Each example is made to order, and is unique to its owner. Your Christopher will have a Swiss automatic movement, and almost every other part is exclusively made in England - the dial, hands, strap and 40mm stainless steel case.
Look closely at the gilt chapter ring, between the glass and the dial, inscribed with your chosen dedication (see the pictures below). Almost secret, this tiny hand-engraved lettering is a work of art in itself. It’s a remarkable detail that makes your watch truly individual.
Naturally, your Christopher will be enhanced by an individually-made leather strap by Tanner Bates of Devon. Its rich depth of colour, comfortable feel and wonderful aroma complete the sense of luxury.
Beneath the parchment (cream) dial is the self-winding movement, a masterpiece of beautiful Swiss engineering. The steel hands are traditionally hand-blued, and the crown is inlaid with a discreet touch of 18 carat gold. Delivery takes about 8 - 12 weeks, and the price for this specification is £3,999.
Alternatively, the Christopher is available with our ‘infinity’ dial, with etched brass surface and Roman numerals, as shown in the gallery at the bottom of this page, at a price of £4,999.
Email or call us, without obligation, to discuss your Christopher: alternatively you can order online.

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.
The Bespoke watch: lifetime guarantee
When you buy a Harold Pinchbeck Christopher or Special Edition wristwatch, we guarantee the movement's mechanical performance for your lifetime. The only condition to this warranty is that you return the watch to us for a professional service at least every three years.
