Christopher Ward

Discovering they could access the same components and superb manufacturing as many of the Swiss big boys, three friends decided they would turn the industry’s distribution model on its head and launch the world’s first online only luxury watch brand with a simple aim, “to put premium watches within the reach of everyone.”


One of Britain’s oldest family-run watch companies, the Fears story begins over 170 years ago in 1846. Being a modern watch company with an extensive heritage we pride ourselves on not being slaves to the past while at the same time preserving our own traditions.

Mr Jones

Mr Jones makes unusual watches which tell a story, start a conversation or simply make you smile. They’re a small, passionate team working from a London studio to bring you watches that are a bit different.

Roger W. Smith

Defined by their unique quality, rarity and advanced mechanical technology, watches by Roger Smith are among the most sought after and valuable in the world. Roger W Smith watches feature his ‘single wheel’ evolution of the Daniels co-axial escapement, which is the most advanced and energy efficient in the world.

Sinclair Harding

Established in 1967, Sinclair Harding honours the historical tradition of fine English Clockmaking. With its range of beautiful hand crafted clocks, this unique company embraces the horological industry’s ideals for precision, quality and perfection.
