From the moment the commission begins - you will be working directly with our master watchmakers to see your dream watch come to life.
The Kingsley is the second instalment of the Struthers’ Tailor-Made range which allows clients the opportunity to create a customised watch from a series of options. As every watch is handcrafted to your requirements - clients can be assured that their watch will be unique to them.
The Struthers only make two to three watches from across their Tailor-Made range each year.
Clients are kept up to date with images from the bench throughout the process and invited to the Struthers' Jewellery Quarter workshops to see their watch being made. Every watch is made-to-order, a process which typically takes 12-18 months.
Cases are available in 18ct rose, yellow, or white gold. For additional requests regarding dial colour options, personal engraving, or to find out more about our wide range of strap leather options - please get in touch using the form at the bottom of this page.
Creating The Kingsley - Deakin & Francis Special Edition
The Struthers moved their workshops into the historic Deakin & Francis factory in 2016 where their landlords have been making fine jewellery and silverware since 1786. As a testament to their combined passion for traditional heritage craftsmanship, in 2019, they collaborated to create a one-off vitreous enamel sector dial version of The Kingsley in 18ct white gold.
