Starting his career as a young apprentice watchmaker in Rochdale in the 1950’s, our founder Vincent Light campaigned for a better work environment for his fellow apprentices, questioning the industry standard of the time. This passion to exceed expected standards continues to drive us forward to this day.
Thanks to the internet we now have access to an incredible community of watch aficionados who share our love of watches. With that in mind we found it really concerning how difficult it is for some people to access expert watchmaking. The artisan skill of watchmaking is fast becoming a rare commodity in the UK and quite frankly it infuriates us that our fellow watch geeks can’t have their precious timepieces looked after in a way that they deserve. We look to tackle these problems head on. By offering a free secure postage service from anywhere in the UK we overcome the difficulty of finding a trusted local watchmaker. We want you to have the personal hands-on experience and advice you look for in your neighbourhood retailer but in a way that is convenient to you. From the moment our postage pack arrives until the time it is back on your wrist we look to keep you updated with its progress and guide you on how best to maintain your prized possession.
With our obsession for watchmaking nothing excites us more than introducing people to the world of horology.
We believe beautiful timepieces are one of the finest examples of human ingenuity and something to be treasured. We will continue to look for ways to guard our communities precious moments in time and help share the love of horology far and wide. That is our promise.
