Extraordinary mechanical watches - the elegant composition of dials, hands and numerals, the magical mechanics of their movements and grand complications - are a particular passion of William & Son’s founder William Asprey. It’s a passion shared by our experienced in-store watch experts and evident in a unique selection of independent watch brands, including small but innovative manufacturers such as F.P.Journe
, De Bethune
, Romain Gauthier
, Ferdinand Berthoud
, Laurent Ferrier
and Ludovic Ballouard
, all exclusive to William & Son in the UK. These are remarkable collector’s pieces, miracles of micro-engineering, mostly produced to order.
The William & Son watch collection also showcases the most venerable of Swiss watchmakers: including H.Moser & Cie
; modern masters of material innovation and other brands of distinction including Britain’s own Graham
. This carefully curated mix, constantly under review, is designed to satisfy all whims, fancies or long-held hankerings, and inspire new ones, with the classic and the avant garde, the restrained and the exuberant, with elegant dress watches and rugged sports watches. There is also a strong selection of ladies watches, including the stone-encrusted horological haute joaillerie of Charles Oudin
. William & Son also carries a range of clocks
of equal pedigree.
