Pioneering Watch Calibres
Rare watches assembled around highly-reliable movements to give you the ability to maintain the watch with us directly or with another service.
The Nº 9015 & Nº 8217 Miyota calibres are analogue automatic movements, assembled in Japan.
The Nº 513S Ronda calibre is an analogue quartz movement, assembled in Switzerland.
They are produced in-house by high-speed automatic assembly lines and undergo strict quality checks to ensure long-lasting design.
The components include repairable metal clockwork with a very powerful stepper motor and fixed pulse.
Type 316L Stainless Steel
With its extra-low carbon content and added Molybdenum, type 316L stainless steel is incredibly strong and extremely resistant to corrosion from seawater or acidic liquids.
It’s also magnetic resistant, unlike the general-use stainless steel grade of 201 or 304L.
We select 316L as the choice of material to provide affordable, rare watches without ever having to compromise on quality.
Every watch is built with British and imported parts and assembled in our workshop.
Recyclable, Renewable, Reusable, Biodegradable & Sustainable
The innovative cardboard packaging has been engineered as a lightweight solution to reduce wasteful distribution.
With a recycling rate of over 80%, corrugated cardboard has the best UK recyclability record of any packaging material, saving an area the size of Greater London from landfill every 4 months.
We endeavour to use recycled stock at every possible opportunity.
Our well-designed ‘right sized’ solution provides maximum protection with minimal use of material to eliminate waste, as well as reducing storage & transportation costs.
The inherent beauty of this repurposed material is adorned by our own exclusive artwork.
