We are proud to create entirely British made wristwatches.
We also restore and repair antique and vintage clocks and watches.
We are open, running a skeleton staff.
Our normal working hours may be restricted so please phone before making a visit.
A family business for generations, we offer an unrivalled transparency when it comes to our work. We encouraging customers to step inside our workshops and see how we work.
Loomes might date back generations as clock and watch repairers but only started making watches in 2008. Our expert staff design and manufacture proper British made wristwatches from their Mermaid workshops in Stamford.
The Loomes Original
The top of the range Loomes Original watch is entirely designed and made by us, movement, case, dial and ancillaries. 100% English (we did outsource a few bits of manufacture, but only to firms we could nip across and see quickly, so within an hour's drive from Stamford.).
It is the first British watch movement entirely designed, manufactured and built in the 21st century.
The Robin & The Robina
The Robin range was launched in 2011 and uses "new, old stock" Smiths movements as the basis for construction. In fact each movement is meticulously re-engineered with additional jewelling before hand engraving the plates, very much in the style of our ancestor watchmaker Thomas Loomes, who owned the Mermaid in Lothbury. The Mermaid was the largest clock and watchmakers in the world in the 1640's and 1650's.
The Robina is the smallest entirely British made mechanical watch.
The County Collection
The Everest, Stamford Mermaid and County Collection watches are all hand-built here in our workshops with our own cases and dials but utilising imported movements.
Naturally, we are also able to undertake bespoke commissions either individual watches or small limited edition runs of up to 100.
Loomes are perhaps the only watchmaking firm in the country where customers are invited to see how we work and to meet the technicians who make the watches.
We remain open. We have taken significant precautions against the spread if infection. Our workshops are naturally exclusive, pristine and where contact is carefully contriolled. If we can help with clock or watch work, do give us a call we will be happy to help.
