Every single watch made by Wessex Watches is made to order. The British watchmaker is uniquely positioned to make every piece a custom piece.
The process of collaborating on the design with artisan watchmaker Jamie Boyd involves you in the story from the start.
In choosing your dial design, the case, its size and the strap, and the clasp, you can create a timepiece that ticks every box on your wish list – and that is forever imbued with your personality.
Whether you want to surprise someone or embark upon the design process together, Wessex Watches brings freshness, accessibility and modernity to the often intimidating experience of creating a bespoke timepiece.
The Wessex Watches journey begins at its Wiltshire workshop. Once you talk to Jamie, the company founder, you’ll be led through every aspect of the design process by one of its artisan watchmakers.
Wessex Watches brings freshness, accessibility and modernity to the often intimidating experience of creating a bespoke timepiece.
The romance of making memories encapsulated in a stunning piece of horology is a never-ending story.
It starts with the creation of the piece and continues in the way it is worn and treasured, and in the intention to preserve it as a modern heirloom for future generations.
You can even opt for a fully bespoke item – created from something as simple as a single drawing – or go on a customisation journey.
Both experiences offer a novel, fun and accessible way to acquire your dream timepiece.
During the process of creating your unique timepiece, Wessex will create artwork, designs and one or more prototype brass dials, all of which will be shared with you along the way, not only for your approval but also to make the whole experience truly personal.
You can even have the prototype dials delivered with your completed timepiece.
Wessex utilises only fine and proven Swiss mechanical movements, both manual and automatic winding, in their watches and you will be given a choice of movements based on the type of watch you wish to create with them.
Take, for instance, the incredible UT 6497 Elaboré Art Deco skeleton found in the Peerless Models.
With a beryllium glucydur balance wheel, Nivarox balance spring, and advanced Incabloc shock protection, this little stunner is far from a stock movement and totally befitting the Peerless concept.
How much input can you have when making your dream design? How much do you want?
The philosophy of founder Jamie Boyd is to give you as much input as possible to ensure that you get the timepiece of your dreams.
From the choice of movement, case, and strap to, most importantly, the precise design of the engraved dial(s) and the accompanying hands, ultimately, the aim of Jamie and the team at Wessex is not only to make your watch unique but uniquely yours.
While you may prefer to start with a blank canvas for your bespoke timepiece, Wessex has some impressive designs that can be extensively modified with your ideas – including the stunning Peerless Model 1.

This timepiece incorporates not one, but two, painstakingly handcrafted dials in 925 sterling silver.
The lower dial machined with two guilloché and a top dial meticulously cut-away, engraved and hand-painted, creates an architectural feast for the eyes.
The possibilities for customisation are virtually endless.
