Time to shine: introducing Paulin watches

Once a thriving industry, the fine art of watchmaking has all but disappeared from these shores. However, there’s one brand who is aiming to breathe new life into this ancient craft by bringing the manufacturing of affordable, well-made watches back to Britain.

From their Glasgow-based workshop, Paulin has put together a stunning debut collection of watches, all designed and assembled right here in the UK. Although some parts are still sourced abroad, such as the Japanese Miyota quartz movement – the mechanism that powers the timepiece - the eventual goal is to have every part of the process done on home soil.

The debut collection is made up of three styles, each with three or four variants, ranging from £120 - £195. All the watches have an understated, minimalist design that is loosely based on the classic dress watch. For instance, instead of numbers, the watch face uses markers to indicate the hours. And the straps, which are made from the finest Italian calfskin, are secured using a simple loop of stitches on each side. The result is a range of truly timeless timepieces.

Paulin C200

The chronograph-style C200 features a domed mineral-glass cover, which protects three chronograph sub-dials for measuring 24 hours, 30 minutes and 60 seconds. The face also incorporates a date window. There are five colour combinations with either a rose gold, brushed steel or polished steel case. Straps are available in black, blue or tan.

The small and compact C50 has a 28-millimetre case with a domed mineral-glass cover, and a calfskin strap. There are three versions with either a rose gold or brushed steel case. Straps are available in pink, blue or tan.



Paulin S75

The collection is rounded off with the unisex S75 ,which measures at  34 millimetres and has a flat mineral-glass cover. Colour variations include a tan strap with a white face and brushed steel case; a green strap with a brushed steel face and case; a blue strap with a brushed steel face and case; or a dark chestnut brown strap accompanied by a dark metal face and rose gold case.




With on-going investment in training and equipment to bring strap manufacturing in-house later this year, Paulin is already planning the next phase of products. What do you think of these beautiful British-made watches?

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
