We’re the official trade body for over 60 British watch and clock making brands. We work together to champion and support our sector all over the world.
WHY WE’RE MEMBERS…
Founder, Mr Jones
“I believe there’s a unique spirit of innovation and creativity that’s only found amongst British watchmakers. I think we harness the flair for art and design that this country is famous for, and unite it with a deep understanding and respect for the technical side of watchmaking to produce something extraordinary.
With more and more small, independent makers appearing, now is the right time to come together under the umbrella of British Watch & Clock Makers.”
Owner, Sinclair Harding
“Britain has a unique provenance for clockmaking and our blend of tradition and craft has created some of the most iconic clocks in the world.
British clockmakers continue that tradition with the finest hand craftsmanship and modern technology and I am passionate about working with fellow horologists to develop an exciting future for our sector.”
(4th) Managing Director, Fears
“Britain has such an illustrious watch and clock making heritage, and Fears is proud to be a part of this story. This is why I’m particularly honoured to be a founding member of this important Alliance, which aims to help support the industry today.
Working together, we can continue promoting the benefits and specialities of British watchmaking around the world.”
CEO & Co-founder, Christopher Ward
“There’s a new energy, inventiveness and optimism around British watchmaking at the moment, so now is the perfect time to encourage further worldwide growth for the sector as a whole.
That’s what the Alliance is all about and it’s why I am so pleased Christopher Ward can play a part in this exciting, forward facing, new venture.”
DR ROGER SMITH OBE
Founder, Roger W Smith
“I’m passionate about helping to bring Britain back to its rightful place as a leading watchmaking nation. We’ve so much to be proud of, not just historically but today, with the great work, the outstanding quality and the unique spirit of innovation Britain is famous for.
It’s why I’m delighted that, as a company Roger W. Smith Ltd is a member and I am personally honoured to be our founding chairman.”
