About

In an age where there is instant access to anything at any time, we’ve come to value the beauty of exquisite objects that exist in the real world with you. Handmade watches are our priority and the focus is on exhibiting these items. Not only for the romance attached to them but the interaction they demand from the wearer – the weight of the handmade watches, the smell of the raw leather straps, the opening of the wax sealed packages and the mysteries inside.

Great company to deal with, despite having loads of customers they always treat you as if you are their only one and nothing is too much trouble. Don’t go and buy a “regular” watch, look at what they have firs, you won’t be disappointed! More...

We stumbled across this company at the Chateau Impney hill climb last year and loved the watches so much I was bought one for Christmas. I love it - individual, stylish and not expensive for such a unique piece. Will be looking hard at the next issue and hinting strongly for next Xmas. More...

From visiting the stand at an equestrian event, the experience was nothing but first class. From chatting about the collections to receiving my timepiece, what a pleasure. I will certainly be returning to add another watch to my collection. Thanks chaps. More...

I bought my husband one of your watches for his 50th birthday. I was lucky to get for Christmas the Emmeline with both the metal and also the leather strap. It is beautiful - just perfect and I love the versatility of the different straps. More...

Theres something very special about this company which is addictive dont ask me why but the story behind the watches just draws you in and if you ever have the pleasure of meeting the owners you will understand why.

My wife has given me a Chapter Five No.1940, 29 SQN Hercules,11/25 in black and it's brilliant. A great looking watch with a superb strap and I love it. I have many watches from Hublot to Citizen to Hamilton and this watch sits with them proudly, with it's own character and charm. More...

It's a big decision buying a watch. For most of us chaps it's the only piece of jewellery we will wear (and rightly so) so it's got to be right. I looked hard at all the British Watch makers and for me WT Author had the right balance of originality (why pay thousands for something that looks like a Rolex and isn't?), style, uniqueness, and provenance, all at an affordable and not outrageous price. Nearly 6 months on and I'm really happy with it. They are watches that can be worn with jeans or with a suit. Smart and classy but just that little less formal than the more traditional dress watches out there. So, any negatives? Well, not many - the power reserve on the automatic movement could be better, and mine runs fast at quite a rate (but then so did my old JLC Amvox) so adjustment needed every couple of weeks. Aside from that? No. Very soft and comfortable strap and elegantly packaged. Outstanding service from the guys and it'll take all my powers of resistance (and a house purchase) to stop me buying the next one out! If you're able to lose the brand snobbery, and you want something unique at a price tag that won't leave you eating beans for weeks, you'll end up with something really rather special on your wrist. Highly recommended and a very happy customer. Thanks guys. More...

I have followed W. T. Author watches from the first crowd funding days, I have never been disappointed in the watches produced. I wanted a watch that was different to the run of the mill, didn't break the bank and was eminently usable. I have a model of every edition and didn't realise I was a watch collector until I bought the first 1905. Support British made goods, buy a quality limited edition watch from W. T. Author today! (but make sure I've bought mine before they sell out...) More...

Like the other reviewers, I couldn't stop at one W. T. Author watch, my first being the 1934 blue automatic, quickly followed by the 1914 in black and more recently the 1929 in white. The concept of designing watches around historical moments and of course the tie in of getting a new book chapter with each watch really appeals to me. I guess we are tied in to 13 watches and I hope they are all as individual and classy as the existing ones. I live in US and the guys at W. T. Author have been brilliant in ensuring my watches reach me quickly and in great condition. My favorite and most commented on is my black 1914. Love that watch!! More...

I purchased the Nº 1934 green dress watch as a gift to myself as I've never really owned a time piece that had much more purpose than simply telling the time. W. T. Author's watches are more than just a timepiece, they have a history and a story to tell with each model. After months of looking through the range on the W.T. Author website, I finally decided to go with the Nº 1934 as soon as it was released in September 2016 and purchased #08 of 25 which gave it even more personal value to me. The full service from Jon and Sam has been exceptional from first contacting the guys, through purchasing to after care service. The watch arrives in a beautifully presented box and you get a real sense for how much pride they have taken in designing, building and sending the watch. I'm sure I'll be buying a few more products from W. T. Author in the very near future! More...

I am the very proud owner of all the blue models and supporter of the brand since the first day. There is something about W. T. Author that you will never find in any brand alike, they tell a story and unfold the history of watchmaking and the world. That, and the fact that they will only create 13 limited models, makes it quite a special timepiece to wear. The make is very high quality, all models feel very solid and sturdy. The straps are made of very strong leather and give the pieces an adventurous and original look. The battery life is very long, actually my 1905 is still running on the same power as it did when it first arrived, where the 1914 needed to have it's battery changed only once. Every year Sam and Jon come up with a new great concept, connected to a specific year in history only one per decade, telling a unique story. The anticipation that starts every year at the end of summer and ends around half november - december for me is hard to describe, I am always eager to find out what they come up with next and every time they exceed my expectations.

I have a real love of watches and like to think I am a bit of a collector. From common Casio's to rarer Breitling's I like to try and keep in the loop with new releases. W.T. Author caught my eye, with the fact that they are assembled in Britain and also seem to be released in a very limited number. (So far) I have two of the W.T. Author watches. The No. 1914 Blue Trench Watch and also the No. 1934 Blue Dress Watch with the Automatic movement. Both are absolutely stunning and more often than not get admiring comments from passers by. The care and attention to detail that the guys at W.T. Author take is obvious to see. From the superb packaging that they come in, the hand stitched leather straps, to the hand written number card and service booklet. You can also sense when owning one of these timepieces that you have a real unique item and one that is special to you. I was able to choose two different numbered editions and knowing that they're the only ones in the world like that is very special, especially in the watch industry. I also really like the fact that they only release one design a year, it keeps me wondering what they might have in store for us in the future. If my current watches are anything to go by then I can't wait to see the next one. More...
