Headed by long-time watch enthusiast Ewan Wilson, we are based near Cheltenham in the United Kingdom; by coincidence, just a stone’s throw from the factory where many thousands of English watches were manufactured by the famous Smiths Company.
The Newmark of now is not the Newmark of old and we make no claims to the history of the original company. We are however, very proud to be able to have the Newmark name on our watches.
Conceived in late 2016 with the objective of reproducing the rare and desirable Newmark 6BB Chronograph, by late 2018 we had succeeded and spurred on by this achievement we look to the future with a large back catalogue of watches from which to draw inspiration for upcoming models.
About Us We are not here to ‘disrupt the watch industry’ nor ‘redefine luxury’
Who was Newmark?
Dating all the way back to 1875, the original Newmark company imported Swiss watches until the late 1940s when they received a government grant to enable manufacture of watches in the UK.
By 1950 production was underway and over the following decade between 6 and 7 million watches were manufactured at the Newmark factory in Croydon, near London.
Newmark reverted to the import of Swiss watches in 1960 and over the next 20 years there would come a plethora of designs from dress to dive. In 1980 the company supplied the 6BB Chronograph to the Royal Air Force - this was possibly the last watch to bear the Newmark name…until now.
