In an interview with I-Magazine Giles English made these interesting comments which hopefully bode well for the development of the UK watch industry.
What business plans do you have planned for the next five years?
More of the same, growing our UK production and our global distribution
How has watchmaking evolved within the UK?
It’s definitely an exciting time for the British watch trade, the industry has some great guys making watches. People forget that there is a huge history behind British watch making. Our goal has always been to help reinvigorate and restart the industry in Britain. By having our own apprentice schemes and investing in equipment for our new parts manufacturing facility in Silverstone we are definitely building on that.
