As an independent British watch brand, Newgate are proud to fly the flag for modern and affordable British-designed watches.
A British Watch Brand
Kicked out of art school when he was in his late-teens, the self-taught artist and product designer founded Newgate Clocks alongside wife Chloe when the duo were in their early twenties.
Newgate’s modern British-designed watches are, in part, inspired by the iconic clocks Read has brought to life in his role as creative director for the world-renowned clock brand.
Alongside influences drawn from his travels across the world, Read’s constant source of inspiration is the brilliant British architecture, craftsmanship and design talent which is evidenced across the United Kingdom, both present day, and in era’s now gone by.
Modern & Affordable British-Designed Watches
From initial concept, through to frenzied sketch and highly-detailed final draft, each British-designed watch starts life in Newgate’s design studio here in Great Britain, before the team works with highly-skilled specialist manufacturers to turn their exact specifications into the carefully-crafted watch collections the brand has become renowned for.
