The Crowder Story:
During World War Two, my grandfather, Frank Crowder, was issued an Army Time Piece as he set out to serve for Britain.
Many years down the line I was lucky enough to inherit his watch.
I loved that his watch had a unique style compared to modern watch design and that the materials had much more character. The watch had a classic but minimal style since it was a utility piece issued to all troops.
The materials of his watch were made to last and their appearance had altered slightly over time, portraying the personal individual history of my grandfather.
I am the second generation in a family specialising in Jewellery and Watchmaking and have been learning traditional skills from a young age.
I have been inspired by my own experience of traditional craftsmanship, and by my grandfather’s watch, to create a modern timepiece with that same classic style, making use of high-quality materials from a bygone era.
In tribute to my grandfather, it is called the Crowder ATP Watch.
