Featuring a classic 2 handed design and a dressed in a case measuring 39mm diameter, the Robin watch is a superb example of an elegant dress watch. Inside each Robin watch beats a legendary mechanical watch movement made by Smiths in 1950s in England.

These antique movements have to undergo a complete rejuvenation and finishing works in Robert Loomes & Co workshop before integrating into the timepiece. The highly polished movement with engravings echoes those mechanical beating hearts employed by Thomas Loomes in his traditional English watches manufactured in 17th century.

The screw heads are hand-polished and blued to obtain a crisp, dark contrast against the 22 carat gold plated movement plates. The movement beats at the rate of 18,800 vph makes the timepiece more traditional. The rhodium plating on the movement ensures protection and long life for the micro-mechanical marvels.

The watch cases are machined and polished using traditional techniques in Robert Loomes & Co workshop in Stamford. The brand cuts and polishes its own sapphire crystals. There are two types of dials are used in Robert Loomes & Co watches: Metal dial and glass enamel dial.

These dials are machined in house at Stamford workshop of the brand. The red gold version of Robin watch features metal dial with a traditional frosted finish whereas as the White Robin hand-made glass enamel dial. Watch straps are available in a variety of colours and styles.
