Searle & Co 9ct gold dress watch

Jeweller Searle & Co was established in the City of London in 1893, and owner Walter Henry Searle began to sell high-grade pocket watches and ladies fob watches from around 1910.

As fashions progressed, the company moved into developing wristwatches. The current collection of timepieces is available in three dial options – with Roman, Arabic or baton numerals – and can be fitted with straps in calf, lizard and crocodile in a wide range of colours, including ochre, with bespoke straps in different leathers available. The 9ct gold dress watches continue the brand’s rich history of craftsmanship.
