For a brand that started as a personal quest to make the perfect luxury watch, Schofield, which takes its name from the revolver used by infamous US outlaw Jessie James, has morphed into one of the most interesting names in British watchmaking. Key to this is founder, Giles Ellis’s uncompromising commitment to design.
Inspired by the rugged Sussex coast, where Ellis has his workshop, every watch, from the material used for the case to the fabric of the strap is planned in painstaking detail. While some of the pieces are made in Germany, this is a brand that wears its English heritage and provenance proudly.
Thanks to the limited production, each timepiece bearing the Schofield name is a labour of love, which is what makes it a truly special piece to have on your wrist.
“Entering the watchmaking game is a bold move to begin with, especially at the higher end of the market. Ellis, however, has not only succeeded in making a watch he likes, but one that others do as well.” Cool Hunting
