Mine and Nick’s long-term vision has ultimately been to play a part in the revival of British watchmaking. We knew the journey wasn’t going to be easy, it’s certainly been a marathon up until this point and one that we are very much still running. That being said, our new watchmaking facility, set to open summer 2020, brings us ever closer to reaching this goal.

It was over four years ago that we started our exhaustive search for a new site to house the whole UK team together under one roof. With so many different parts of the business to please this was always going to be challenging.  

Devising a space to accommodate sizeable dirty CNC machines near a watch assembly area, where the smallest bit of dust can prevent a watch being built, was going to stretch the confines of any space. That’s not forgetting the need to keep Nick happy in his ivory tower!

After an extensive search in a wide area around Henley, we concluded there wasn’t going to be anything suitable already on the market. We needed to start afresh and build a brand new state-of-the-art facility that would be able to satisfy all of our business requirements from manufacturing to marketing.  

Culden Faw Estate, our current landlord, came to the rescue as they had some land that we were able to use for our development. So, with a lot of hard graft over the past few years and working with South Oxford District council as well as our architects, Spratley Partners, we have got to this rather exciting point…   

We will update you further as we get closer to the big launch!
