Description

Cash poor, idea rich. The creation of Sussex’s only luxury watch brand

Giles Ellis did not set out to be part of a revival of British watchmaking. He was more interested in designing the ideal timepiece for himself. Four years later, Mr. Ellis and his company, Schofield, are one of several watch brands with “Made in England” labels.

A designer who has created everything from music amplifiers to mountain bike parts, Mr. Ellis, who is 42, entered the watch world with “naïveté” on his side, he said.

It was a combination of expertise and uncompromising personal taste that prompted Ellis to first handcraft his own amplifier. ‘All my life I’ve been someone who likes things to be just right, and as such the products I’m attracted to tend to be incredibly expensive. So I’ve ended up furnishing my life with things that I’ve made with my own hand.
