The George

 

The George will mark you out as a man of impeccable style. Not only will it tell the time: it will tell the world of your understated good taste!

The 36 mm George is a classic size for a gentleman’s watch, 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. The elegantly shaped ‘leaf’ hour and minute hands have an attractive ‘blued’ finish, and the seconds hand moves with a satisfying sweep action. An extra touch of luxury comes in the form of the beautiful leather strap and the presentation wallet, both hand crafted in Devon by Tanner Bates. To complete this lovely package we will include an attractive handwritten card with your personal dedication. The George really is the perfect present!

The George is powered by one of the world’s most respected Swiss-made mechanical movements, the superb ETA 2824-2. Its design and meticulous engineering have been proved and refined over several decades, and it is respected by good watchmakers everywhere. Kept wound by wrist movement, it can also be hand wound.

Provenance

Making your watch

 
watch build C.jpg

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.
