Robert Loomes & Co is a traditional English watch atelier which produces exclusive mechanical wristwatches completely hand built in Britain. A small, yet skilled team of watchmakers and specialist craftsmen led by Robert Loomes FBHI and Robina Hill FRSA undertake majority of the works in-house to produce limited, numbered editions of classic English watches in which every single component is made in Britain.
Based in Stamford, half way between London and York on the old Great North Road, Robert Loomes & Co re-invents the 17th century English horology by utilising traditional watchmaking techniques. Its founder, Robert Loomes, who is also the vice chairman of the British Horological Institute, belongs to a business family associated with traditional horology since long time. His father, Brian Loomes, HonFBHI was a well-known technical author who has written numerous books on clock and watchmaking.
Robert takes inspiration from legendary master watchmakers who lived in England, especially the eminent seventeenth-century watchmaker Thomas Loomes. In 2009, Robert Loomes started to manufacturing of their extraordinary watches in batches of 100, using as many British components as possible but defaulting to foreign components where necessary.
Flagship collection of the brand is comprised of two lines: Robin for Gentlemen and Robina for ladies. All these timepieces are handmade to order and available in variety of strap versions.
