Hawchester Watches Microbrand

Today I want to present to you an exciting British microbrand I’ve just discovered, Hawchester London.

Hawchester was inspired by the legacy of British clock and watch making history.

From the 16th to the 18th century British clock and watchmakers pioneered several aspects of this industry and were regarded as the best the world over.

Hawchester watches is a dedication to this legacy of Great British watch making. Their very first collection was designed in a quintessentially British style, taking design inspiration from both luxury British automobiles and the pristine and varied landscapes of the British Isles. 

They named their first collection the “Clerkenwell” collection as a dedication to the watchmakers of Clerkenwell, London.

You can find both quartz and automatic watches.

Hawchester Clerkenwell Automatic

The automatic version of Hawchester watches are all the Clerkenwell Automatic model and houses a genuine Japanese Miyota automatic movement.

The watches are available in different colours (Dover White, Cannock Black, Oxford Blue, Tudor Red , Cumbrian Green)

Genuine leather colour matched straps with hand finished contrast-stitching, including water resistant and anti-perspirant coatings, ensures your Hawchester is ready to go when you are.

A high-quality portable spring bar tool ensures that you can change your watch strap when you want, wherever you want.

All of this comes packaged within a genuine Crazy Horse top grain leather watch case which can double up as a wallet with tons of space for cards, cash and even coins!
