Welcome to Watches2U
Designer watches made in Britain are enjoying a revival in interest from buyers all over the world, it has been claimed.
Expert horologist Laura McCreddie, writing for Retail Jeweller, explained that English watchmakers were considered the best in their profession from the 1600s to the 1800s, with 8,000 men employed in the industry.
Despite its pool of talent, timepieces from the UK fell out of favour in the 18th century when cheap Swiss watches became available for the first time.
However, Ms McCreddie said she thinks models from British designers are coming back into fashion, with other brands also emulating the styles.
"The British watch industry is having a slow, but steady revival," she commented. "The Brits are making a name for themselves abroad."
In October 2010, British Museum curator of horology David Thompson told Forbes that London was famous for its designer watches before any other city in the world, with timepieces the ultimate "high-tech bauble" many years ago.
