In The Beginning...
I grew up fascinated by clocks, surrounded by clocks - our home was a shrine to clocks. Perhaps my parents were hinting that my childhood timekeeping needed some assistance...?
Like an extra member of the family (we called it Little Ben...), a large antique wall clock was, and still is, keeping exceptionally good time with it's melodic tick-tocking. In 1975, my father saw it in pieces in a local watch-repairers shop and brusquely enquired if it was "any good?" - the proud clocksmith stood, and with finger pressed to my father's chest retorted, "Young man, when I have finished it, it will outlive you!". From that moment, it has been cared for as if a cherished offspring.
From your first watch, to an inherited watch, to a luxury watch you have coveted and saved for - a timepiece is always a special symbol of time. In today's high-speed world, where the act of giving your time is held most precious of all, giving the gift of a timepiece is symbolic of the high-regard you hold for someone special.
Like most busy adults, time demands in my life were many, and I wanted to make sure I spent my time doing something that would help others also, so establishing this company has enabled me to pour my passion and energy into creating these beautiful, unique & personalised pocket watch gifts, so that you may also give a special 'thank you' to someone who deserves your gift of time.
Delighted with the service. The watches added a lovely touch to our wedding and were widely admired. The engraved presentation boxes were a lovely gift for my best man and ushers.
What an amazing idea! Given to the groom for his big day and added the finishing touch of class to his suit. Thank you for that something unusual and special.
I just wanted to say that everything arrived in time and everyone absolutely loved them!
Thanks for the pocket watches and the lovely engraving.
