Clemence Watches is a small independent microbrand, based in Britain.
Uncompromising robustness of a modern tool watch in an elegant, classic design, the Photic diver by Clemence Watches is ready to go from sea to summit and everything in between.
Clemence watches have taken cues from the golden age of watches, the 60’s and 70’s, to create our vision of the ultimate go anywhere, do anything dive watch – capable of surviving the photic zone and everyday life alike.
Their watches are assembled by horologists here in Britain using watch parts manufactured in Japan and China. By working with local experts they ensure their watches are assembled and tested with the care they deserve.
Clemence Watches stand behind their timepieces and are committed to ensuring we have the spare parts to carry out routine repairs and services for at least 10 years after sale.
For every Photic Diver that is sold, trees will be planted to help reforest Scotland, enhancing and protecting our ecosystems. In addition, every Photic Diver will be climate-positive. This means they will sequester at least twice the carbon footprint of each watch’s life cycle.
By being climate-positive, Clemence Watches, and their customers, are leaving the environment in a better state than we found it; helping to conserve the wild places we love to explore.
The founder Tom Clemence said “As an Ecologist by training, I’m proud to stand behind this commitment of environmental legacy, funding it through reduced profits, not an inflated cost of our watches.”
