Custom Watch Building Experiences

Join us & build your own bespoke watch to take home, just £99.

Our luxurious flagship store in the heart of historic St. Andrews is the perfect setting to learn about Scotland’s history of watchmaking and our place in it.

Using our One of One design service enables the visitor to custom build a bespoke watch by selecting their desired components, finishing with a personal engraved message.

With the finest Scottish food and drink on hand, and the range of Scottish material used in our straps, visitors are sure to enjoy a uniquely Scottish afternoon they will long remember, not least the customized wrist watch they’ll take home.



You will be met by our master watch-builder at our workshop in St Andrews for a warm welcome. Local whisky, beer and wine is the order of the day along with fresh smoked salmon canapés and Scottish tablet.

We will begin by sharing the history of local watch manufacturing and the story of our brand to help give you inspiration for the build of your own timepiece. You will then be guided through our range of components, beginning with the options of case designs, to determine what best suits your style and needs. Once the watch case has been selected we move onto our vast range of straps, available in leathers, cashmere and wool by Scotland’s Johnstons of Elgin, as well as authentic Harris Tweed options.

Next the master watch-builder will guide you through the assembly of your chosen components to create your finished wristwatch. Finally, you can further personalise your watch with a bespoke engraving. Adding text or even a handwritten message to the caseback. You will operate the engraving machine and watch your timepiece come to life.

And there you have it, a unique watch designed & made by you to keep forever.
