The Struthers' first pocket watch, The Carter is the only recommissioned timepiece available in our Tailor-Made series to feature a parachute shock setting.
Every case is hand crafted in sterling silver as standard. Each piece is made to commission allowing for a wide range of opportunities to customise and make each watch unique to its owner; such as the bi-metal case in silver and rose gold housing the watch pictured. For additional requests such as alternative dial colours, personal engraving or to find out more, please do not hesitate in contacting us.
Clients are kept up to date with images from the bench throughout the process and have the opportunity to visit the Struthers' Jewellery Quarter workshops and studio to see their watch being made.
Every watch is hand-built to order in a process which takes up to 12 months.
