Our Story

Beaucroft was created from friendship, a passion for great design, a love of Cambridge and the power of a beautiful watch. 

Beaucroft was born from our great friendship and our shared fascination with the few beautiful items we treasure in life - the ones that tell our stories, spark memories and accompany us on our life adventures - for us, these have always been mechanical watches. 

When we started the company we had one goal - to enable more people to discover the delights of mechanical watchmaking; to achieve this we keep our designs classic with a touch of modern flare, we break away from gender labels and we focus on the aspirations of today’s modern individuals.

We look forward to finding the perfect timepiece to tell your story.

Delightful British design

Being British our designs are influenced by an appreciation for heritage without being defined by it, drawing inspiration from a rich tradition of craftsmanship whilst remaining curious, innovative and in touch with the desires of our customers.

Beaucroft is an active member of the British Watch & Clock Makers, promoting the resurgence of British watch design.
